Every morning, running or not I'd take a quick shower and then do the guy thing - shaving in front of the mirror . I'd like these few minutes of private moment to face to face with myself. There are two identical matching smiles or face-makings yet there is only one mind and one soul.
I'd often ask my reflection in the mirror a short question "what do you want?" I'd answer it silently in my thought. Interesting enough, the question has been the same but the answers have changed through the years. At the beginning, my answers were lay between to have wealth, babe, and fame. Nowadays, approaching 30 years old my answers begin to detour quite a bit. It is not that to be rich and famous have lost the lures completely, it is just I want something much more than that in my life , I want to be a kind, warm , caring and stron–inside-out man.
I know I don't have to try to prove that I am a man any more. The testosterone and masculinity are here. What I really wanted is to be a REAL man. A man possesses a kind, warm, caring heart which makes people surround him to not only feel these qualities and also to reflect and radiate these incoming positive energies as well. I want to be strong not by how many miles and how fast even how many opponents I can run, endure, and surpass, I'd want to be strong enough to admit errors and correct them at once, and I want to be strong enough to allow others to feel safe, respectful and trustworthy when they are with me . And I want to be strong enough to have an always learning mind.
Yes, it would be strong and tall as snow covered mountain peak, yet as resourceful and kind as the forest in the middle to give abundance and shade.
