Have you looked at yourself in the mirror lately? Have you looked at your eyes? Stared deep into the depths of your own eyes? I did just the other day, and it weirded me out a little!
But my eyes told me a couple of things.
They told me that I need to get more sleep for one, but also that there is a lot more life to be lived. There is a lot more to explore in this world and who I am now is just a peek into who I will be.
They were also a deeper shade of blue than they have been for many years and they sparkle like they haven’t seen since I first met Michael.
Did you ever meet someone with eyes that shine with life? They dance and sparkle. I like people with shiny eyes. That might sound weird, but you know what I mean. We’ve all met people like that.
We all speak with our eyes constantly. I see it in my son’s eyes every day. He speaks to me all the time even though he can’t physically talk to me. He says, “I love you” everyday with those eyes!
How do I know that?
I see the difference when he is happy and sad. He wouldn’t ever have to cry outright. I can see it in his eyes.
I’ve always marveled at the saying, “The eyes are the window to a man’s soul.”
I know I’ve often avoided looking myself in the eyes in the past. I didn’t like what I saw there. Now I realize my own eyes were telling me something all along.
A message I needed to hear. Or rather see.
I needed to change. I needed to take action, seek knowledge, and pick myself up out of my own self pity. I needed to move and let myself BE moved. I needed to LIVE the life I was living.
Eyes talk, I think much louder than words.
Question: What do your eyes say?
