I look at myself in the mirror on many occasions. I look at my eyes. My eyes tell me lots of things.
They told me for years to make changes.
They told me to address unresolved issues.
They told me to finish the race I had started, to pursue things that brought life, not death.
They glimmered hope at me. Hope that my life didn’t have to be an endless road of disappointments.
They glimmered with untapped strength and courage, but only for a second. It was always followed with the same look of discouragement and sadness.
My eyes had lost their shine. They looked small, dull, and lifeless.
I became obsessed with regaining the shine in my eyes. I would look at them every day.
I read, I prayed, I journaled, I cried. It dawned on me that no matter how often I cried about something, it didn’t change unless I changed. I realized what I had to do. I had to take action. It was time for change.
Glorious, life giving change. I let it come, I pursued it, I wrapped it in my arms and embraced it.
I changed. I changed and my eyes are shining again!
We all know what we need to do. Why else would so many people not look themselves in the eye? Our eyes give us away. Our eyes don’t lie. We often just lack the courage to do what needs to be done.
Take heart, friend. Take courage, it is waiting to be embraced. Let change come, wrap it in your arms, and let your soul come alive.
“Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.” – Jim Rohn
