“I am in love with you', I responded. He laughed the most beguiling and gentle laugh. 'Of course you are,' he replied. 'I understand perfectly because I'm in love with myself. The fact that I'm not transfixed in front of the nearest mirror takes a great deal of self-control.' It was my turn to laugh.” ― Anne Rice, Blackwood Farm
Let not self absorption detract you from the job at hand which is to love oneself.
The difference between being transfixed with your own beauty is that you lose the connection to your soul where the truth of your beauty resides.
It is in the understanding of the precious soul that you are that no mirror could ever reflect the complete and pure light that resides in your soul waiting for you to open the door to its expression.
When you look into your heart-soul see the sparkle of the diamond, feel the energy of the blessing you are to the world and know your purpose is to be yourself so that the world can be a better place.
This is who you are.
