Moment of Reflection
Hello, my loyal readers. What a whirlwind of a year, to say the least, would you not agree with me? It is the fifth month already and so much has happened. In January, I took the month to do an introspection of what I’ve experienced in 2022. I believe it is necessary to know what has been learned and gained in this journey called Life.
Introspection enables you to better recognize and understand what you’re thinking and feeling. It will promote mental and spiritual health and increase your happiness. Evaluating and analyzing your thoughts and feelings provides you with a baseline of where you are at. Your state of being assist as a compass to where you want to go in your life.
Journaling is one of the forms that has been such a treasure in my life. How? It has allowed me to pour my heart out as well as scream and cry on paper with my words. I even drawn my thoughts so I can vividly see them smile back at me. I have written about occasions that what I have experienced has made me laugh hysterically!
Going on a nature adventure may be something to consider when you want a moment of reflection. As you connect with nature, you forget everything else. This has happened to me when I visited Africa, Puerto Rico, Peru, and Guatemala last year. For the first time, I desired to pay attention to my surroundings carefully and intentionally. I saw the presence of God in all my surroundings. Priceless!
You can see the bigger picture when you go out of your comfort zone. What do I mean by that? By doing and experiencing something that brings you joy, peace, and love, you are enriched beyond measure. Learning a new language, an instrument, or joining a club are a few ideas that can generate a wonderful experience that will enrich your life. Wholeheartedly, go for it!

Peace, Love, and Joy!
