Blog Post # 282 – Upon Reflection

How often do we review our day?

 

Examine the things that happened to us and the things that we did.

 

Check in on our accomplishments, both big and small.

 

The hurts that we may have caused another.

 

Do we carve out time at the end of the day to reflect on whether we spent our time wisely?

 

Too often, it seems, that we go through our day on autopilot.

 

Bouncing from task to task.

 

Event to event.

 

We may get a lot done, but our activities are mindless.

 

Or, perhaps, to put it another way – that we could be more mindful as we go through our day.

 

And then use 10 minutes at the end of the day to reflect.

 

Time well spent.

 

A bit of reflection at the end of the day may help us think new thoughts.

 

Make new observations about ourselves.

 

And then help us to craft a different day tomorrow.

 

For today, let us be mindful as we glide through our day.

 

And for tonight, let us set aside 5 or 10 minutes to reflect on everything that happened.

 

We can then calibrate our tomorrow as well.
