Your Life’s Reflection

From time to time I like to share poems on here and I found one the other day that I really liked.  It’s called “Life’s Mirror” by Madeline Bridges.

Like most poems it can really speak to you if you read it and let the words soak in.  Sometimes I think we read poems just to make sure the lines rhyme, and we end up taking very little away from the moment.

One of the things I have said to people quite often over the years is that whenever you have an opportunity…be it while sitting through a meeting,  listening during a lecture or presentation, a sermon, motivational seminar or when reading a poem…try to take something from it.  Just find one thing you can take from the experience and apply to your life.  If you’ll embrace that mindset, you will be amazed at how much you can learn and grow in a few weeks, a few months, and by the end of the year.

So I encourage you to not just read the following, but to really find and take from it that one principle that you can immediately adapt in order to make your life better.  It’s in there.  Find it and prosper…

Life’s Mirror

There are loyal hearts, there are spirits brave,

There are souls that are pure and true,

Then give the world the best you have,

And the best will come back to you.

Give love, and love to your life will flow,

A strength in your utmost need,

Have faith, and a score of hearts will show

Their faith in your word and deed.

Give truth, and your gift will be paid in kind,

And honor will honor meet,

And a smile that is sweet will surely find

A smile that is just as sweet.

Give pity and sorrow to those who mourn,

You will gather in flowers again

The scattered seeds from your thoughts outborne,

Though the sowing seemed but vain.

For life is the mirror of king and slave,

‘Tis just what we are and do;

Then give to the world the best you have,

And the best will come back to you.
