I tend to use reflection as a tool to change aspects of my life so that I feel calm. Reflection when used as a tool helps me understand my life better.
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 can be 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, we will continue to make mistakes.
Sadly, without using reflection as a tool we’re also more likely to focus on the things we fail at and where we may be successful, not recognise that we are.
Reflection is a means of us putting our lives back into perspective and back on track.
