Certain occasions lend themselves to reflection.
Big changes in our lives.
They present an obvious shift in our perspective. And so we become more aware of our surroundings. More observant, more critical.
But this isn’t inherent or unique to those situations. We can simply choose to enter that frame of mind.
Stop for a minute. Take stock. Look at where you are, where you’ve been and where you’re going. Consider what you’ve done, what you’re doing and what you think you’re going to do.
There doesn’t need to be anything special about when or where we do this. Some places might seem more suitable than others.
But here and now is good enough.
