Self-Reflection

Self-Reflection

Self-reflection is paramount for a person to learn from his/her mistakes and past situations. Ideally, it is a systematic way to learn to be positive and make better decisions. In the process, one distances him/herself from his/her ego and thereby learns to appreciate the qualities that improve one’s self acceptance; and it allows the individual to have better understanding and empathy for others.
Artists often paint self-portraits which helps them “know thyself” and then their ability to capture the essence of others is improved.
My daughter’s most recent self-portrait seems to capture hers perfectly.

Positive Attitude

Every day I battle with the stresses of life and maintaining a positive attitude. It seems that the world is collapsing into a chaotic quagmire of anger and hatred and hurt and pain. But I try to remember that focusing on the many blessings in my life always allows me to see with rose colored glasses. Then I realize that changing my circumstances starts within me. The Spirit inside me ultimately guides me to do the right thing, despite my contrariness and my inherent laziness. Life is a journey that should bear good fruit.
