Faces are one of the hardest things to draw and there are so many different expressions, messages, signals, things being said by them.

They are amazing things, that say so much about you to others. You can tell happiness or not, kindness or not, warmth or not, so many emotions, or lack of them, can be seen from a person’s face.

It is the world’s window into us.

How often do you think about the face you have put on and what message it sends? Or thinking deeper, what is going on behind the face, that projects whatever representation of us to the world via it.

We often have expressions out of habit and are unaware how others see us.

Maybe you could change something that puts a different look on your face, sends a different impression of ourselves.

What does your face say about you? Take a look in the mirror or ask others what your face is saying.



When we look in the mirror we see what the world sees of us.

If we want to see a smile, then better that we take to smiling first.

If we want to be treated well by others, then we better treat others well first.

And so on.

The world carries on with or without us, it is not the responsibility of others to make our lives happy, fulfilled and successful. We have all the time in the world to decide what we show to the world and if we’re not happy what we see in the mirror, then we can always change it.

What we get from our lives is a reflection of how we are to the world and ourselves too.
