A Time of Reflection


There should come a point in everyone’s life, a time of reflection. A time to look back and do an examination of the things you have done, whether they be accomplishments, failures, good deeds, mistakes, experiences and so on. They teach you in nursing school that people usually come to this point, a time of reflection, when they are in their forties. I say that people should examine themselves daily. This world would be a better place if everyone examined themselves on a daily basis, looking over things they have done that day. Then, evaluating ways to have lived the day better.

I look at my past as not something that I want to re-live. I have come to a point in live where I have discovered something better. I have realized that things could have been better in my life, if I would have focused everyday on living for Christ and not for myself.

I want you to take a look at what things are important to you. Now, sit down and make an honest list of things you want in life and things that you love about your life. After you have made your list,  Now look at the things that are important to you and examine them. Why are they so important?

  •  Does your list contain material possessions?
  • Does your list contain your values?
  • Does your list include your family?
  • Does your list include God and your faith?
  • Does your list include things that don’t really matter?

Now look at your list and see if there are things you would change.  If you are being truly honest, you would see that there are things that you can change,  things you can improve on, things that should matter, and things that shouldn’t.  If you die tomorrow, would your list change.  Would you be happy with the things that you hold most dear?  Or would you be the same self-confident, self involved person that you are.  Does your family mean anything to you?  Or, do you care more about possessions?  What truly makes you happy?

I hope that I have given you a reason to improve your life and a reason to reflect back.  You and only you can make a difference in the lives of others.  I see my list, I see changes that can be made and things I want to change.  What about you?
