I tend to use reflection as a tool to change aspects of my life so that I get to feel calm. Reflection, when used as a tool helps me understand my life in its entirety.
It’s important for us to reflect to see how we can make improvements and adjustments, so that we continue to grow spiritually and emotionally. Where life is overwhelming, reflection helps us manage things.
Reflection also helps us learn more about ourselves, by showing us a full picture of our experiences, where we’ve gone wrong and how we can make things better, how we can put our life back on track.
Mistakes are a valuable commodity and a learning tool, but unless we understand why we have made a mistake, and we use reflection as a tool, we will continue to make mistakes.
Without using reflection as a tool we are also more likely to focus on the things we fail rather than the things we could be successful at and not even recognise that we are.
A time to reflect is when the mind is calm, when in that moment you have time to think about things. Reflection is also a means of us putting our lives back into perspective and back on track.
