Ever wondered how you look like in person?
A while ago, while I was brushing my teeth and staring at the mirror, I saw the reflection of my father behind me getting a glass of water. I was just surprised when I saw him at the back because I didn’t hear any footsteps and there wasn’t any noise at all. That moment, I asked myself, can the mirror lie?
I looked at my face once more, then a question came running on my mind, is the face I see in the mirror right now, the same face that other people also see? That’s when I wondered how I really look like in person.
Yes, I love taking selfies. Photos suggests that what I see in the mirror and what I see in my camera screen are the same. Of course, they can’t be lying.
But my curiosity didn’t end there. I came to a point where I wanted to meet myself in person. Probably in one of those busy streets, I would suddenly bump into myself (I know it’s not possible and yes, I am totally well.. and I haven’t lost my sanity). But, let us say, it could happen. Would I like what I see? More than that, if I meet myself on a busy street, would I like her? What are her flaws? What would I love about her? Would I like to be friends with her?
If let’s say, I am the man of my dreams, and I finally met ME.. will she be the type whom I would want to know better? Does she have that feminine mystique that would make me more intrigued and challenged? Is she the type whom I see walking down the aisle towards me? Will she fit my qualifications as an ideal woman?
These questions came running through my mind. Questions that are meant to be a reality check for me.
Am I living a life that leads me to discover the person whom God designed me to be?
When questions are answers.
