I smiled and the mirror smiled back at me. Charlie Chaplin had said “Mirror is my best friend, because when I cry, it never laughs”. On a positive note, if you want to keep smiling the whole day, smile at yourself in the mirror and observe…your smile widens…not once, not twice but many times. The point is that you smile once, then look at yourself and then you smile again and sometimes it goes on. To make it more easy, let me put it this way…you make efforts to improve your smile and obviously you realise, that each time you made yourself smile more than before. This may not work for a very smiley day always; all the time, but it does tell you that you look better when you smile and ultimately you love yourself that way.
Mirror becomes your best friend even in bad times. When you are sad and have no one to talk to, you also feel like locking up yourself in your room. Here’s where your mirror comes to aid. Sit in front of the mirror and talk to yourself. First thing that would happen is you will observe your own sad face which may not look good to you. “Is this me?” that’s what you eventually think. And then you start talking to yourself… Yourself in the mirror. You curse the bad part that is the cause of your sadness and your mind also gives you the feeling of hitting, punching, throwing things. But you don’t do the first two. You do the third one. Throwing …pillow…which might even hit your mirror if you don’t check your direction. The reflex action? You move a few steps behind and you seem to forget that your reflection was being hit, not you. Did you realise something now? Your mirror image also moved behind and lo, you laughed suddenly. What was that? Tears turned to laughter just like that because of the mirror.
The mirror on the wall or the one in your dressing table or on your almirah is the one that makes you feel good by helping you like a friend in just every situation. Get ready and take a look at yourself in the mirror. If you are not satisfied by your looks, you will make changes and after a little while you will find yourself looking good and you will smile. So basically, the mirror makes you smile. All these are very natural instincts, but they do give us a message. If the nature of tears is to flow, let them, but don’t forget to smile once you are done. In fact, once the burden of sadness is gone, you end up smiling even at the smallest incident. Tears dry up soon, but smile widens because that is what it is meant for. Smile and the world smiles with you.
That mirror on the wall is meant to reflect your looks and it also tells you that you should make yourself look beautiful. You can look beautiful if you feel beautiful. No one looks beautiful without a smile and that is what your mirror points out to you. Mirrors were not just meant to show you yourself, they SHOW YOU THE REAL YOU. You who needs to find yourself .
The day you feel melancholic, face the mirror and think …you will realise that the state of pensive sadness is not what your mirror likes, because it stays sad with you. You might then try to fake a smile, drop your eyes, again look at the mirror with that fake smile, bingo!! you will actually start smiling over and over again and feel good about it. Melancholy disappeared, smile appeared.
Basically it is all about the state of mind but mirror does help as a best friend, who stays with you, who teaches you to smile. Don’t we all have fun while making faces in front of the mirror, especially the magical mirror that changes our looks when we move closer or when we move farther?
Decorate your mirror with stickers but make sure that those are smiley stickers.
