Welcome to The Inner MIRROR blog! This blog will focus on my journey of self-reflection and introspection as I attempt to figure out who I am and who I want to be when I grow up; I am nearly 54 years old ;). Where I am headed, and what is blocking my path are not always very clear, but nonetheless I keep moving forward.
I have been practicing various forms of self-reflection and introspection for some time now. I have found that studying Taoism has aided me immensely. I have recently began reading the teachings of Buddha and adding such practices to my life. Nonetheless, I still feel lost at times. This may be because my inner mirror becomes dirty, cracked, broken, or shattered at times. However, I always seem to find the tools I need to repair it. Good thing too, because a gal cannot last long without her mirror no matter how flawed it is! :).
This category will be the daily posts that I aspire to write. Many will be prompted by The Daily Prompt (WordPress), The Photo Challenge (WordPress), or some other musings from my exciting life journey into who I am, what I want to be, and where I am headed. If I go off my daily meds for too long, please check in and remind me to get back on them!! It’s never a good thing to go off daily meds for too long….
Monthly Feature Posts
The Inner MIRROR will feature categories supporting a monthly post. The first category is titled “At the Bar”, which consists of musings and lessons I learn weekly during my weightlifting training. I have been lifting consistently since February 2016 and I absolutely love it. The changes in my physical and mental health have been phenomenal. Here is where I will sweat it all out for you!
The second category is titled “On the Rocks”, which consists of reflections and insights from my experiences as a newbie rock climber. I have just recently begun climbing both indoor and outdoor. Just from the few months I have been climbing, I have learned a lot about the sport and of myself. Here is where I will let it all tumble down!
Welcome to the path! I hope you find it as enlightening as I!!
