Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!

The Makeover Gift!

In response to Helene’s weekly challenge What do you see ?

blue-present_300

I look at myself in the mirror of life.

Unhappy with what I see,

A makeover is the call of the day

Lets begin, I tell myself!

To cleanse the body and soul

I learn to forgive and forget,

snip off my inflated ego ,

In the bargain realize

I have lost a few kilos.

Indulge the soul in a meditative spa

Cleaning all the grime of pride

I dab it with a layer of charity .

Choose an attire of floral sunshine

line my eyes to see good in others

highlight my face with smiles that travels miles

seal it with positive affirmations

color my lips with sweet talk

accessorize the look with loads of gratitude

perfume it with divine fragrance of prayers

put on the shoes to lead me on a righteous path.

All set,

I present myself with the gift of now.

Ah! Just love this makeover

I have gifted myself,

I bask in the compliments

life showers on me!

    The prudence of your mirror is admirable Radhika, I wish we all could follow it. What a wonderful introspection! Well articulated.

      Thank you so much Balroop. I guess along with external appearance we should also focus on the beauty and growth of the mind and the soul.

    Radhika, it felt so good to read this, like cleansing my very own body/mind/soul as I read through your poem. It is amazing how you have written this so anyone reading it can feel their own makeover. Thank you so much for this spirit makeover.

      Thanks so much Hélène. While writing it came in effortlessly, the actual practice is going to take in a lot more effort I guess ☺️
