In our lives we are handed many joys and challenges, hardships and happiness. Often we rush through our life without the growth that comes with reflecting on how these occurrences have impacted our life, or how they could impact our life! That is right, could impact our life! Think about it. Look back on something that happened to you this summer that brought you joy. Reflect on it. That means see the reflection of it on YOU. How has it changed you? What was your piece in making it happen? What can you do to bring joy like that back in your life more and more often? When we experience life and merely move on without the growth that is offered us, we miss out on a world of SELF AWARENESS. What an amazing things it is to look back on a joy and see your piece in the process. What an amazing thing it is to realize that you may be able to make it happen again!
Now let s look at a challenge that you have experienced. Do not merely look at the pain, or sadness involved in the incident. Reflect on how it has impacted your life and how it can impact your life! This is much harder to do, but oh so important to do. The idea in reflection is not to relive our sadness. The idea in reflection is to grow from every experience. So ask yourself what was your piece in the event? How has it changed you FOR THE BETTER? What have you learned that makes you stronger, or clearer in your life’s intention? Do not wallow in the sadness, or hurt. Use the past to gain SELF AWARENESS in how it can change your future. Even the deepest losses can have a positive impact on our life if we let it. It is often in these moments that we experience a new awareness of our heart, soul and path in life.
Reflect, live, love and learn. Enjoy the Journey!!
