Flourishing Through Self-Reflection

I have found that having some time for daily reflection helps us to become better human beings in our daily interactions with others as well as ourselves. Self-reflection also builds a more stronger bond with the Lord. However, to do this, it normally requires some alone time, a quiet place, and maybe even some reading/writing material. Recording our daily woes and triumphs is a great way to focus on the positive in our lives rather than the negative.

And I don’t know about anyone else, but I sure like the positives. Our perceptions of life seem to flourish in a positive environment. Practicingย kindness, forgiveness, gratitude, and appreciation ourselves influences those same traits in the people around us. As the old adage goes, “You are what you hang with.”

  1. I am just learning how to invest in life. “Unlearning” hanging back is hard, but the investment is so worth it. Thank you for this beautiful post.

  2. Your welcome. When I first started this blog it was about me growing, but as time goes on, I truly hope anything that I say can be an encouragement to others. I just try to remember that my actions toward another may be the difference between a good or a bad day for said person. There’s only one perfection in this world and that’s our Savior. I can’t measure up to Him and I am a long way from perfect, but I do like to make others feel special and make them smile. And if I can accomplish that by making even one person smile, then it makes my day brighter. I hope you have a blessed day.
