Man in the mirror

I have been doing a lot of soul searching these past couple months. I read the following on a friends facebook page and it really spoke to me so I wanted to share it with you.

"Man in the Mirror"

If you get what you want in your struggle for self
And the world makes you king for a day
Then go to the mirror and look at yourself
And see what that man has to say

For it isn't a man's father, mother or wife
Whose judgement upon him must pass
The fellow whose verdict counts most in his life
Is the man staring back from the glass

He's the fellow to please, never mind the rest
For he's with you clear up to the end
And you've passed your most dangerous, difficult test
If the man in the glass is your friend.

You can fool the whole world down the pathway of years
And get pats on the back as you pass
But your final reward will be heartache and tears
If you've cheated the man in the glass."

Thank you John for this wise advice. Advice I intend to take with me as I continue the journey that I am on. This crazy life has lead me down some windy, scary roads, but I have always tried to stay true to my heart and figure out how to live life making sure that I am basing decisions on what I want. Sometimes I have faltered  and outright failed, but I always seem to find my way back to me. And that is the road that I am on right now. I am on the road to finding and being true to me.

Life

it's all about perspective... just ask Mitch Albom, one of my favorite authors.
