Can You Look Yourself in the Mirror?

I’ve made my share of difficult decisions. I’ve learned one thing for certain… people are going to question most of your decisions. Accept it. It’s just part of the landscape.

I’ve always lived my life by one simple rule. I’d ask myself, ‘If I do this, will I be able to look at myself in the mirror’. This has been my guide through life. Ultimately, I’ve made some great decisions, and some that made life tougher than it had to be. Still, I wouldn’t change a thing. I never sacrificed the well being of myself or my family. And athough it’s been a tough road, it lead me to exactly where I need to be.

You know right from wrong. You know what will or won’t get you in trouble. Do what you believe is the best thing for you, and don’t get hung up on pleasing others.

Dream Big!

  1. Not the easiest words to live by, but definitely some of the best words.
    I have not always done the smartest thing… or the right thing. But I have learned to live with my mistakes, learn from those mistakes and move forward with a little better life education. I’ve always tried to make life choices with – as you say – the well being of me and my family in mind. I own the choices I’ve made and things I’ve said. It’s about integrity and having good integrity is what let’s me look at myself in the mirror.

    1. Agreed. It seems to be something everyone figures out on their own time that we don’t need to worry about others’ opinion. Integrity does give me peace of mind for myself and that’s much more significant.

    1. Apparently, he has been blessed in return with a family which sees, appreciates and affirms the gifts of time, thought, energy and love he brings to them. Your comment made this poet very happy 🤗
