No, I haven’t been hacked by a beauty blogger, I’m just in beauty_blogger mode today. Actually I want to talk about a thing that, if you look deeper into it, both literally and figuratively, has nothing to do with beauty. The thing reflects not only you but your attitude to self-awareness and self-definition within the contexts of time and space.
When I looked at myself in the mirror this morning, I told myself that I’m a successful blogger. But my Stats keeps insisting on the opposite. Affirmations don’t work. I have to post.
Everybody defines place of a mirror in their life.
In the bathroom, on the shelf, in the bag, in the car – no matter where but they exist.
Some psychologists claim that the most important item you can have on a deserted island (after your toothbrush and signal flares) is a mirror. It’s so not only because its surface can be used to signal planes and ships but also because you should look at yourself in the mirror every once in a while. No, not to make sure you are pretty (crocodiles don’t care), but to make eye contact, even though these eyes are yours. Do you remember the movie Cast Away, 2000, and the volleyball “Wilson” that has become the only friend for Tom Hanks’ character?
I have to confess, I love to catch people’s glance. Maybe that’s why I like walking around crowded places. About five years ago, I read that some people desperately need to meet eyes with others, otherwise it seems to them that they don’t exist at all. Well, we will not discuss clinical cases here, especially since I don’t like talking about myself.
It’s highly unlikely that anyone will argue about the fact that we all want to be seen. As people and as bloggers. What kind of a person we are and what kind of a person we are in other people’s eyes bother us to the same extent.
So, how often do you look in the mirror or any other reflective surfaces? Does smiling at yourself in the mirror make your life happier? : )
