At one point in my life, I was missing out on the importance of self-reflection time. I was busy with everyday stuff – and just living one day at a time. It’s easy to do. But in the past few years, I have discovered that reflection time is essential in my life. It’s that time when I step back and give my life serious consideration.
I do this on a daily basis. I always ask myself what is working for me? What isn’t working for me? What could be changed in my life? What’s the takeaway lesson from today? I believe there is always a lesson in everything we do.
Reflection time for me occurs often when I’m out in nature – just walking or doing yard work or while cooking or cleaning with no music or other distractions. It will look different for each of us but I want to encourage you to find time for reflection in your life.
I understand life happens – kids, a household to run, the job, etc. But when we take time to self-reflect…we grow and we improve. Start setting aside moments for self-reflection and act on what you discover, you will find that it’s time well spent.
