100 Word Story – Mirror, Mirror (Part Three)

It’s never an easy thing facing yourself in the mirror. Most people use it as a time to try and make their outer appearance look good, doing their make-up, fixing their hair, and whatnot. It’s a funny thing, using a mirror to focus on what other can see.

But what about using a mirror to reflect the deepest parts of your mind that you wish to ignore? Using a mirror to have a true one-on-one with yourself in order to get past those negative thoughts? It may sound chaotic and psychotic, but trust and believe.

It’s quite normal, no matter who the person is, and regardless of what they do for a living.

“You’re not going to get any work done today.”

“I already have my work up on my computer screen.”

“That doesn’t mean you’ll get work done; you’ll just be staring at the screen with no kind of inspiration or ideas.”

“Getting something on the screen it better than nothing. I’ll just type whatever comes to mind.”

“And you’ll spend hours and hours of your day typing random shit and then not even saving it.”

“That’s fine. I have to filter out the bad ideas somehow.”

My reflection squinted at me, disgusted at how positive I was trying to be today.
