Mirror mirror on the wall!

She is tired. She hasn’t slept last night. She has those puffy eyes that clearly indicate that even the tears left her eyes all alone. She has those dark circles and even the glow of her face is not willing to come back. The first thing that she would have thought is to wear a good makeup mask. Make her swollen eyes appear normal with an eyeliner and hide those dark circles with a concealer. But no!Not this time.

She is tired of hiding things. She wants to show the mirror this is the way she is. She loves this face.  She likes those sad eyes.  She has no guilt on her conscience.  She loves her glowless face as it reflects the strength in her. She is glad that though her face looks tired it is serene with her straightforwardness. If she would have been sorry she would have openly accepted it. But she was not wrong and can face the world looking straight into everyone’s eyes. She doesn’t  fake emotions. She wants to be herself! Being herself is the best possible makeover for her which makes her more beautiful than any other girl in this world! She takes a selfie without a beauty mode and smiles at the “real her” in the mirror. πŸ™‚

  1. I love this! What a powerful and inspiring piece of writing. I particularly like “She loves her glowless face as it reflects the strength in her”. We all have this strength within us, beneath the mask, and the least we owe ourselves is honesty to that person in the mirror. Beautiful πŸ™‚

  2. A reminder of a chapter in my life in the past. Tears, dark circles and puffed up eyes all say one thing, sadness and pain. Now I am grateful all that is past and I am in a better place in my life, and able to share my experiences and knowledge gained for the benefit of others. Thank you for your fine words πŸ™‚ ❀
