So many, many things can happen in just one simple, significant second.
I almost learned immediately in 1994 when I became a Chaplain for Hospice that folks who were in my care would often use me as a mirror.
I really feel that when we undeniably know that we are NOT going to live forever, that in fact, we’ve all been born with a lethal sexually transmitted disease called, LIFE, that we have very basic, essential fears that set in like a disease itself. A fear like, “What about my appearance? What am I going to end up looking like as DISease DISsembles my body?”
It amazes me how people use US as their mirrors. They don’t have to look in a mirror to see what they look like, they just have to watch our expressions when we walk in the room and see them. Amazing still how it just might not be ‘the sick’ who use the mirror trick.
We all look for recognition and acceptance in the eyes of those who look upon us!
So…be the eye, the camera, the mirror that Accepts, Acknowledges, Affirms, Authorizes another.
What does it take to do so?
How much Money is involved and needs exchanged?
How long does it take?
A Second. . .a simple, sincere second.
Psssssst: Don’t give it a Second Look!
