What do you see in the mirror?

Part of health is a healthy image of oneself so, when you look in the mirror, what do you see? Not necessarily looks but personality or anything. What/Who do you see?

It depends on what is going on in my life. Right now I see someone who is not perfect, but running ragged trying:)

I try to be positive so I see a pretty face but behind it I can still see sadness.

I try to avoid looking below my face because I'm only 3 months postpartum and I'm still not happy with what I see there.

I try to be positive.  Right now I am run down so I don't like looking at myself.

I don't like looking the mirror. I don't mind my face, but I have struggled with liking my body since I was about 9 years old.

 I see my grandmother and if I smile, I see my dad. No, really. Those aren't neccessarily bad things. :)

I do see things that weren't there a decade ago.  When did these THINGS appear on the side of my face? I think they're called jowls and if I understand, weight has nothing to do with them. It's all gravity, baby.  Guess that means I need to walk on my hands for the next 50 years.

I see determination, exhaustion and often times, confusion.

depends on the day.  Somedays, I see the start of crows feet, the awful extra skin on my stomach from my pregnancies, the stretch marks, the bags under my eyes, etc.

More often, I see one badass marathon/triathlon straight A student mama.  One who leaps fires and dives into open water swims even though she's terrified of both.  Legs that can run 26.2 miles at once, a stomach that grew two beautfiul baby boys, and a face weathered from so much laughing and enjoying the beautiful outdoors.

I've found the second outlook resutls in much better days, so I tend to go with that one  :)

None of us are perfect and I think that's all we can do. :)

I saw the pic you posted in the picture post and you look great!! :) I am sorry that you've struggled with it but I'm sure others see you completely differently. =o)
