4th January is celebrated as International Braille day. While we must appreciate the invention of braille to help the visually impaired, lets take a moment to realise the importance of one thing that Braille or no equipment can help. The Mirror! - A piece of glass used to get us ready and give a glimpse of what we actually look like. But do we realise that a mirror does more than telling us how we look on the outside. Well it also influences of what we are on the inside.
"Mirror mirror on the wall who is the fairest of us all."
We have been listening to this tale since childhood and tell me, would have the story existed if there wasn't a mirror to answer?
And each one of us have wished at least once to get a mirror that tells us that we are beautiful.
The often used phrase, can you look at yourself in the mirror is a way of asking your self of what is in the inside of you rather than the outside.
While mirror , a piece of glass created so that we know how we look rather has become a way to boost our confidence and self esteem. Looking at ourselves tells us if we are ready to face the world or not. But why let a piece of glass decide whether we can do something confidently or not.
A psychological fact says that we are confident and our best self when we know we look presentable , no harm in that but why let that be turned into a insecurity. Carrying a hand mirror , looking into our front cameras , frequent visits to the loo to see the mirror and glimpsing at the specially attached mirror right next to the door before leaving are all ways to seek support and let the mirror tell us that we look okay so that we are confident.
