Mirror, Mirror…

“The best mirror is an old friend”. – George Herbert 

I was talking with a friend recently. 

She said to me, “What happened to me? What happened to my body? What happened to my face? When did I get old?”  

Of course, I laughed at her assessment of herself and told her she was beautiful.  

To me, she was that same poised, put together, beautiful girl—now lady– that I’ve known for over 40 years.  

When we are that “old friend”, we see more than just the physical attributes of another.  

We see our friend’s heart, soul, and being—the total package.  

Oh, and not to fool ourselves, that old friend sees our not-so-pretty parts too.  

I want a friend that sees me for me—the good, bad, and the ugly—and loves me anyway.  

Do you have a friend like that? Are you a friend like that? 

What do you think about being that friend to yourself?  

Instead of being so darn critical of ourselves, why not try to be your “best friend”?  

I dare you!!
