What Do You See In 2015?

This morning s I got ready for work, I stopped and stood in front of the mirror. I was there for a few minutes when I realized I was looking at myself much like viewing with a  microscope.

Yes, waiting for the coffee to be ready I was bent over with an eye piece against the glass of the mirror… well, not really. As I stood there I realized that I look at myself with the focus of a microscope. No, I don’t see every little flaw, rather I am unable to see the bigger picture. I did not see my color, my hair, or my extra weight. I did not see my house, my car, or my wallet. I did not see my friends, my enemies, or lost loves. I simply saw me. A wrinkle growing here, an itchy spot there, a dull color to a tooth. I saw a lot of things in that microscopic-like view and yet I only saw me. I did not see who I am or who I am not. I did not see advantage or disadvantage. I saw only me.

In 2015 I hope that a lot more people in the world can be as lucky as I was this morning. That person in the mirror should not have a lot of accouterments, social or otherwise. I also hope that more people see other people the same way, in that sort of microscopic view kind of way… without the accouterments.
