Through The Looking Glass
Through the Looking Glass is about delving that bit deeper and looking at yourself that bit more closely.
Some shops have those weird changing room mirrors that show you what you look like from all angles... which can feel a bit disconcerting if you didn't really want to see yourself from behind (!) but in order to REALLY understand ourselves, and what we can do, sometimes we have to look at ourselves in a way that might feel a bit uncomfortable! In 'Through the Looking Glass' we're not looking at the outside though - this is all about who we are inside and what we can do. How do our brains work, what makes us tick, how do we approach life…because each of those things is pretty much unique to us. Once we get better at understanding ourselves we should hopefully be less bothered about comparing ourselves to other people because basically we can only do things our way…and they can only do things theirs. If they tried to be you they would fail miserably.
So spend some time thinking about YOU. Here are some pointers; google a personality test to find out what you're good at; write down your favourite foods, your favourite childhood books, your favourite programmes, the things that make you laugh, the things that make you most angry, the things that make you cry (maybe your top weepy films…or perhaps the fact that you NEVER cry) The things you want to see happen in your life, the places you want to visit, the people who most inspire you (famous perhaps but also those great people you know), the subjects you're good at, the ways you most love to spend your free nights and weekends, your favourite songs and some of your dreams for the future. Already you're starting to build up a picture that is your UNIQUE MIX. We all have completely different things to offer. We're like different parts of a big machine and if everyone were to be the same we'd be a bunch of totally ineffective people. The world doesn't need people like you - it needs YOU (because you're the only one anything like you in fact)!!
Wouldn't it be amazing if we all could understand our own individuality and the design features that make each of us unique??
