Reflections of Self

“The only journey is the one within.” – Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet (1929)

As I gaze into the mirror, do I still see myself staring back at me?

Do I recognize the woman who stands before me?

She is no longer the same person she was years ago. She has undergone profound changes, embraced growth, and delved deep into self-awareness.

Who is she now?

She is the culmination of her ancestry, a reflection of her roots, yet distinct from them.

She acknowledges her lineage but chooses her own path, steering away from the patterns of the past.

Appreciation resonates within her core.

She has made a conscious decision to honor her true self, to embrace authenticity over conformity.

Change is not feared but welcomed with open arms.

Each time she confronts her reflection, she witnesses the manifestation of her evolution, a testament to her resilience and inner strength.

Joy permeates her being as she reconnects with her inner child, embracing spontaneity and curiosity.

Anxiety no longer holds her captive; she has learned to tame its grip.

Depression no longer casts its shadow over her spirit; she has found the light within.

In the midst of it all, she discovers the essence of true joy – the profound understanding and acceptance of her authentic self.
