The man in the mirror

I'm not a fan of the 3rd season of Glee and it's mainly because I didn't like the first episode very much. Even if a lot of people are saying that it's good (I also tried watching it on the plane due to lack of choice haha), it just didn't have the same effect on me as Season 2.

But I did fell in love with their version of Man in the Mirror. Truth is, I only just appreciated the meaning of the song when I heard it from Glee. I think they did a good job in their rendition, very soulful and heartfelt.

I'm going to make a change
For once in my life
It's gonna feel real good
Gonna make a difference, gonna make it right

I'm starting with the man in the mirror
I'm asking him to change his ways 
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself then make a change

I know the whole song is intended to help change the world, to fight poverty and hunger and hopelessness and stuff. But in a smaller picture, this can also mean fighting your inner demons, having confidence in yourself despite the darkness, picking your broken self up from the ground and starting all over again, believing in yourself that you can still change, and actually making a change no matter what age, color or background you have. It's about hope and believing in God's promise to prosper us in this life.

This is why the song struck me the way it did. The way to make a change is to change, one person at a time. And together, we can do so many good things in this world.
