When our world looks ugly to us we can remember that the purpose of the reflection is to show us what needs to be fixed, we don't yell at the mirror, we don't smash the mirror, we don't make a judgment about the mirror being wrong -- we just lovingly fix what needs fixing and recognize that the mirror's reflection served the purpose of showing us what we didn't see before.
I'm sure you've heard of the long-held spiritual belief to the number 40, the philosophy behind it stating that it takes 20 days to break old habits and 20 days to form new ones.
