The face in the mirror

What is the first thing that you do after you wake up in the morning? You curse, stretch, yawn, squint, and scratch your way to the bathroom. As you prepare to brush your teeth, you peer into the mirror and you do something that isn't the most charming way to start your day with—you look as gloomy as the mirror will allow you to look.

When you frown, the face in the mirror frowns right back at you. If the poor guy had his way, he would probably have smiled at you, instead. But you won’t let him because you won’t change your scowl into a smile, your grimace into a grin.

If the fellow in the mirror doesn’t like your frowning face, how do you expect anyone else to? He has to live with it because he can’t do a thing about it. Others can run away from you. Nobody likes a sour puss.

Your facial expression, particularly the expression you wake up with, is the one you will carry with you all day long and it will decide how your day goes—good or bad or, worse still, ugly. It is not a very pleasant sight. With a face like that, can your negative aura be far behind? Not only will you ruin your day, you will spoil everyone else’s too. Wouldn't it be better if you stayed at home and not showed your face outside?

So the next time you wake up in the morning and look into the mirror, smile, and the face in the mirror will beam right back at you—and see how good you feel and how well your day goes. This is a fact of daily life.
