The eyes are the windows to your soul, when you take that look in the mirror be prepared for what you see and be willing to make the necessary changes......if necessary. In order to make the world a better place we have to take a look at ourselves and make those changes.. Instead of looking at and judging whats on the outside embrace what's on the inside.....

You are quite correct,the eyes are the window to the soul.However chance favors the prepared mind and the only true way for us as humankind to make our everyday existence better is taking a realistic look into who we are beneath the surface.Unfortunately for some they shy from this as an option simply because the truth hurts.Thank you for your thoughts.Much Love

Looking into that mirror can be scary because what you judge other peoples shortcomings and faults on just may be starring right back at you. Here's a short story that may me step outside of myself and take stock of my life and look into that mirror and judge me as a person. I was a girl rich in family but poor in finance, but attended one of the riches school district in my city. I was accepted because I wasn't half bad looking, on the cheer leading squad, dated a football player, my friends could hang out at my house, thought my parents were cool and, was academically #2 in my class. My friends were basically trust fund babies and, people that when they turned 16 they got brand new cars-Mercedes, Jaguars, and/or whatever cars they wanted. I was happy to drive my mothers cutlass supreme. Went to college and made a success of myself. I kept in touch with some of these high school friends after college which I felt were friends forever. While in college of course I made more friends 1 in particular that I have stayed in touch with. She was coming to visit me, and my friends invited me to a formal gala event weeks earlier which I RSVP for 2 because I new my college friend would be here visiting. My friend from college she has a heart of gold and a figure to die for, but not what you would call a raving beauty on the outside. Well we attended this formal gala when i introduced her to my friends they were civil but with cold kindness. The evening went on I heard a couple of my friends comment on my college friend that she was not appropriate for our circle and the dress she had on was probably brought my me because she could not possibly have that good of taste. Hearing this from the circle of people that I called my friends made me furious. Now here is what so funny and why I took that look in the mirror. When my friend from college came to visit and I told her we were going to a formal black tie gala she ask me not to introduce her as the daughter of, (wait I will tell you of who in a sec) is because she made a name for herself in her own right and she wanted people to like her for who she was and not for who her father or family was. She could see that I was for lack of a better word PISSED because, if anyone should have been invited to an event like this it was not me but her a person that comes from money not me this financially challenge person that called these circle of people her friends. That being said I could not continue to listen to these hypocrites and keep quiet. I stood up and clanked on my glass and announce that I would like to make a toast to a woman that made it her lifes work to educating and showing young women choices in life can make a difference has given a generous donation to the SCHOLARSHIP FUND FOR ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE for MINORITY WOMEN in the amount of I called out the amount, and introduced her as SUSANNA CHURCH CHANDLER her grandfather was the founder of churches chicken
I seen in her that money or status did not matter to her but the person you are. My look in the mirror informed me that i was materialistic i cared about looks, cars and life status, after meeting my friend from college my look on life has changed you look at a person for whats on the inside not outside. my look showed me that at a point i was materialistic now I'm about the inside of a person So take that look in the mirror it might be scary but it will Be worth it.

When I posted this blog have you no idea how good it felt to have ladies from my personal friends network to envoke such insightful and engaging responses.This speaks volumes to knowing that I choose to connect with women who represent a complete body of both knowledge and beauty.Sometimes that look in the mirror can be a difficult one,that notwithstanding you not only took a look but you took a stand and that represents 2 more important c's(courage and character).Much Love my sister.......

Taking a look in that mirror is not as hard as it may seem. Fear is what keeps us from looking deep into that mirror. We fear the unknown. We all need to just stop and look into it, ask yourself, " WHO AM I?". The reality of it is that 75% of us trully don't know. We have allowed society and loved ones to mold us instead of blossoming into who we really are. We want to fit in. But what exactly are we fitting into. We are only fitting into a society that dictates who we should be. The same as with with friendships and relationships. Do they exists simply to be able to fit in?? We know we have entered reality when we are no longer afraid to look into that mirror. We accept unconditionally, remain nonjudgemental, walk side by side with our fellow man with our heads held high, hand in hand. We live in reality when we are proud of ourselves with no recognition needed only the results of our endeavers. Blacktiger yes you have a very positive impact on the lives and in the minds of everyone you come in contact with. Your words of encouragement are always appreciated. Here are a few words of encoragement for you... Make sure you always follow your heart and your dreams, keep your head up, and never forget to look in that mirror, don't lose sight of who you are..........................................peace and much love Ms. Wycked
