“Reflection with an open heart expands my awareness and allows me to find wisdom in the bigger picture of my life; it allows me to dwell in the interconnectedness of all there is. As I reflect, even through hardships, I discover beautiful blessings along the way.”
It is easy to get swallowed up in the now. In fact, many of us live on autopilot. Sometimes the best thing we can do is take a breath, step back and look at the bigger picture of our lives. To see where we have come from, to notice our growth and what has changed. Granted, that doesn’t always mean that we will feel good about where we are but in order to pivot and adapt and find our path again we must reflect. In this reflection time, we may notice things that we are proud of and things that we aren’t. We may notice how we have spent our energy – did we invest it well? We may observe strengths and blessings that were crucial to bring us to now. When we pause for short reflection we are able to see just how intricate life is. How all of our yesterdays have impacted our today. Therein lies our wisdom AND our blessings.
