Imagine for a moment that mirrors didn’t exist. Not just the manmade mirror we find in our bathroom, but any reflective surface like a pool, window, or shiny surface.
It would be impossible to know what we look like because we have no way of seeing ourselves without the help of an external object.
When it comes to how we show up in the world, the same is true. We need a #mirror to show us whether we are living our thoughts, values, and beliefs.
While #introspection and self-work are important and necessary, sometimes the most effective thing we can do is invite others to reflect back to us how we are showing up in the world.
The diversity of mirrors and angles can help us see blind spots we never knew even existed.
