Reflection! Reflection!! Reflection!!!

When I say "reflection", I do not  intend to explain the physics term which is 'the throwing back by a body or surface of light, heat, or sound without absorbing it'. No I do not mean that, instead I mean this reflection which is a 'serious thought or consideration'.

Reflections are very essential phases we all have in our lives, some folks reflect more often than others but we all have moments we reflect on our thoughts, decisions, actions, speech and sometimes we reflect on life itself. We critically think and re consider some of the decisions we have made that has led us to the path we are currently walking on and often times we realize though traveled far on this path we know and are comfortable with, it is never too late to take a turn back to the starting point and start all over again. To take a new path that will give us the desired outcome we want at the end of our lives.

We need to put everything in perspective and plan as much as we can so we have an excellent result, not living each day as it comes but living each day planned and adjusting to what each day brings. Making decisions after a reflecting are very helpful and important, it is a kind of stop and adjust mechanism we do, that is we stop at intervals, look back and adjust our lives based on changes that have occurred over time. Its very essential we reflect regularly, so as not to go on a path for too long in the wrong direction and find it difficult to to go over to start again.

I know someone is getting anxious to know what metric can be used to reflect. Well the only metric of reflection I know is my Holy Bible. I use my Bible to reflect and set standard for daily living. I will recommend the book of Proverb for anyone and everyone, it has simple and understandable verses you can relate to and reflect on.

Some quotes on Reflections

''Reflect upon your present blessings -- of which every man has many -- not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some"- Charles Dickens

"Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards."- Seren Kierkegaard

I hope you would reflect more after reading this and learning the importance of reflection.

Maybe some we will sit on a big table to share our experiences and what we had to give up to live right.

Thank you for reading my post.
