Our lives, and our journey through our life finds us looking for where to turn, where to run and where we should be. This journey is oftentimes hard, but we go through it, our head in our hands, tears rolling down or a smile on our face, but it’s our decision which it is.
Going through the journey, we’re looking for something to grasp, something which attracts us and there are times which that something, which initially attracts, repels.
The act of being repelled by the journey sends us reeling and we have to get back up, stand on our feet and look in the mirror at the creature we’ve created.
The creature, though not who we wanted to be at the start of the journey, tells us who we are at that moment, and only at that moment.
The moment we get past that creature and on to another, we discover that we’re something better, not the creature in the mirror anymore, but the person we wanted to be all along.
The person we’ve become is a monster of different parts, taken from different aspects of who we are, who we’ve been and where we hope to be.
The person in the mirror is no longer one we don’t want to look at, it’s the one we take pride in, the one we tell our friends about and that person is the one we hoped to be at the beginning of our journey.
The journey is long, the road is filled with more bumps and divots than a 60-year-old freeway. We find ourselves going through new things each day, but at the end, when we look in the mirror at the creature staring back, is it the one you want to be, or the one you wish wasn’t there?
The creature is only where we are at that point, it changes, it moves and at the finality of the journey the creature becomes who we hoped to be.
