At this time of year, we tend to reflect on what the veterans have done for us and our country. This is important. It is also important to take some time as we near the end of the year to reflect on how things have gone. What things did not serve us well, and what things went well? For the things that went well, how can we keep them going into the next year, and for the things that did not serve us well, how can we adjust or shift? What new things can we try?
Once we begin down this road of reflection, we can sometimes get sucked in and overanalyze everything. Reflection is meant as a glance, like in a rear-view mirror. Can you imagine driving forward with your eyes glued to the rear-view mirror? Not a good way to drive! So it is in life. If we focus too much on the past, then we are unable to move forward.
If we choose the opposite and never reflect, we remain where we are, STUCK. We will not correct things that need to be corrected, and we will continue down destructive paths without seeing the destruction left behind us. Reflecting gives us a clear picture of where we have come from so we better know how to continue.
Join us for this webinar on November 2 @ 7 p.m. as we discuss the importance of reflection.
