Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards. – Soren Kierkegaard
To live and love with my whole heart, I have found that I need to spend time in reflection. December and January offer a valuable time to reflect on the year and make goals or resolutions. While I am all for end-of-year reflections and resolutions, I believe that it is important to reflect more often than only once a year. I find it helpful to reflect every day. To make a point of reflecting each day in order to build a habit of reflection.
Here are some ideas to get started:
- What is giving you life?
- What is taking life away from you?
- Name something that you are doing well.
- Name something that needs to get better.
- Who are you becoming?
Learning about yourself helps you grow into the best version of you. Reflection offers perspective and change. Dare to reflect and grow from it.
