The image in the mirror

I've looked long and hard at myself lately in reflections in the microwave or the dirty car window and even in the mirror. I'm surprised to see myself there because I hardly recognize the person in front of me.

She has lines of aging and sagging skin around her greenish brown eyes that used to be the highlight of her face.

Her teeth, more yellow now than ever, have shifted in their roots and are now crooked where they never were before.

She's heavier. Her clothes hardly fit. Even the new, bigger ones.

The sight is not pretty, and it leaves me wondering where did I go wrong? All of this has happened in the last three years. Some, in the last year or two.

Is it too late to reverse the signs of aging, I wonder?
