To think about yourself as a reflection of someone else in their eyes is a scary thing. It confirms that we are indeed real and in being real we have the potential to change and shape the life of someone else. How powerful is it to be alive and in the moment? We hear this cliche a lot, but rarely give thought to what it actually means. Looking at yourself through the eyes of someone else is the best reflection of yourself. There is no hiding, excusing, or room for debating. How someone sees you is what you are to them, but be careful to surround your self with good people because in their reflection back to you there is also a bit of their soul. What is a soul? A soul is your essence, your individuality, and what separates you from the masses. If I have learned anything from being in bad situations it is how to avoid them. How easily we fall prey to the power of money. However, the more we chase and chase the prospect of it the farther away it gets like the dangling carrot in front of the donkey. Who wants to fight a war that clearly cannot be won. I refuse to give up anything else in the name of money, because the end does not justify the means. I refuse to live in the bubble world where everything has a pristine predictability. If that makes me an outsider then so be it. I would rather a little of what is real than a lot of what is fake.
