The Importance of Reflection

There is a time for everything in life: Action and Inaction.

When we are in the midst of rapid change, frustration, major events it can seem that its crazy-madness; but there is order in the chaos. It takes a moment to step out of it, take some perspective and re-evaluate whats really happening. But that usually doesn’t happen when its happening (unless we are a super yogi…). And that’s okay.

We are humans and we were born to make mistakes. Its one of the main  ways to learn. The important thing is that once life has settled we take a moment to pause, breath and take in what happened. As much action there is, there needs to be the polarity of relaxation, of revaluation and contemplation. If we are constantly moving and never take  time to take in the sights then we miss the point of life. Life happens in the simple, in the little moments and its not about the end, its about how we got there.; Its about the experience learned, the conversations we had and the difficulties we over came along the way.

Radical self love, self forgiveness is a must and it takes patience and work to get there. To love ourselves as much as we love others, the divine etc. To forgive ourselves when we lost our footing, our head amongst the noise and say to ourselves ” It’s okay, I can do better next time”. We can be our worst enemy or our best friend. It is important to develop a strong and good relationship with ourselves because lets face it, you are with yourself 24/7. It takes practice but every time we take a moment after the fact to evaluate what happened and what we could do better the next time, it makes us better. It opens our minds and lets us see different perspectives. It creates space for change. 

No need to judge, criticize, or put ourselves or others down. See yourself and others a small child, although the body has grown we are just as sensitive and vulnerable as when we were younger. Acknowledge what happened and move forward with acceptance, gratitude for the lesson and with optimism. Life will throw everything it can at us, but its how we deal with it that creates character and a legacy.
