Am I where I want to be? (Self-Reflection) - Coaching SOS (Part 1)

Let us start this journey towards growth, success & happiness with understanding where we stand in our life today. We can only get to some place better, if we are aware of where we are now and what we have become. We have all grown up with our own set of dreams and desires. This first part of Coaching SOS will give you the script to look back at your life and see the journey you have made thus far.
And to make this process interesting, I (Coach Akanksha). am presenting you this article in the form of a poem. It is simple and pure. Read it, Think about it, and know where you stand. This is a guided introspection exercise. Only once we accept who we are can we create room for betterment.
Here it Goes...Have Fun!


by Coach Akanksha

I see my reflection
           In the pond,
And I wonder
            What all I have done wrong;

I see my reflection
            In the mirror
And I think
of my many errors;

I see my reflection
            In their smile,
I must have made
Someone happy for a while;

I see my reflection
            In his eyes
And I wonder
            If it is all worthwhile;

I see my reflection
            In her tears,
What all mistakes
Have I done over the years;

I see my reflection
            In the clouds,
And question myself
            Have I become a part of the crowd?

I see my reflection
            In the flowers,
And wonder
            Where my laugh has disappeared;

I see my reflection
            In the stars,
They have always
            Carried my dreams far;

I see my reflection
            I see me,
Is this really
            What I wanted to be??

I see my reflection
            In my tears,
And wonder
            If I can now set myself free!

I, now, see my reflection
              In my own eyes,
And know that
I deserve to be much more than 'Me'!

Now is the time to start that change that you really want for yourself! Take a tiny step each day and make yourself more like you really wanted to be!
