Day 24 – Reflection

Smile babyToday’s post is more about reflection. The aim is to make you consider your life and to consider your choices. To look back on all you have done, all that has bought to you to this point and smile.

Throughout most people’s lives they reflect, they regret, they look back and they try to change their future. What about taking a slightly different view however.

How about instead of looking back with regret we simply look back. We analyse and acknowledge all of the things that have bought us to be the person that we are; the good AND the bad. Yes we have all been through heartbreak, all faced disappointment, all suffered but we are still here. Still surviving and still finding joy in lots of different things that life has to give us.

Instead of planning for tomorrow by trying to lay out a step by step plan, how about we write down the dreams and work on today. Work on what we can do this day, this moment that may be a step forward towards that dream or Β goal. It may be a giant step, it may be a pigeon step but it will still be a step.

The best description I can give is to live like a child. A child you ask?!

Does a child think about what game they will play tomorrow? Does a child think about the fact they may be sick tomorrow? Does a child wonder about the dirty nappy they left you yesterday that gave them a bad stomach? No. No. and No.

A child lives for today, for this moment. It enjoys the life it currently has and shares pure, unadulterated joy. They smile and it lights up a room. They giggle and infect everyone around them to do the same.

So today, forget your woes. If you take one thing from this post, let it be that you try and live like a child and enjoy what you are doing right now.

Ciao for now x
