Looking in the mirror, what do you see?

If you can't look yourself in the mirror and say "I really love you" and mean it to the point of feeling, then this tells you that you have a problem with your self image. Deep down, that might have started in childhood even before you were aware of it. You can change it though by "re-framing" past situations and how you see yourself. You can also re-program the mind by looking in the mirror daily and saying these words "I really love myself, I love who I am and who I am becoming" Even if you don't feel it at first, eventually you will because you are doing a form of "self hypnosis" Eventually your feelings will catch up and this will be true to you. When it is, you will attract people who adore you and more positive things in your life. The key is adoring yourself first....This is wisdom, I hope you take it to heart. I spent most of my life feeling like I was broken from abuse that happened early on and continued into adulthood. I kept attracting more abuse because of my deeply held beliefs about myself. This confirmed to me my belief that I was in some way "inadequate", when all the while I was actually above average in many ways. Gifted in the area of creativity and working with people. I suffered in silence though and no one knew. How do you see yourself? Like a strong, powerful, confident lion? Or a small defenseless little kitty? Like a beautiful swan, or a ugly duckling? When you change your self image and you will change your life. Blessings- Rob

People are like tomato plants

In life there are different seasons just like we see in tomato plants. 

Tomato plants start with a seed, they grow taking in all the nutrients from their environment.  They eventually bloom then fruit with seeds contained reproducing themselves.
  They then eventually wilt and die.

People are like tomato plants. It's so unfortunate that some plants will never even get to squeeze off a single tomato before dying. Some will only get to create one. Some a few, some many.  Maybe they didn't get the proper growing environment?  When they are hurt and down, maybe no one reached out their hands to help them so they spiraled down, not able to find a way back up. 

What makes the difference in whether people bear fruit or not? 

A little T.L.C. from the gardner makes all the difference!

 Being planted in the right environment, the right amount of water, sunlight and fertilizer. Everyone, just like plants, have a ideal environment to grow in. 

 You are the gardner, The world is the field and people are tomato plants. Find those in need of your green thumb and share your love with them. What you do does matter. You can make a difference in how much fruit they bear. A little love goes a long way.
