Another week of reflection. I've had many moments, days and weeks of reflection this summer.
To reflect is --
to turn away, deflect
to turn, throw or bend backward at an angle
to cause to rebound or reverberate
to bend or fold back
to push or lay aside
to reproduce or show as a mirror image
to bring or cast as a result
to show or make manifest
to remember with thoughtful consideration
to throw back light or sound
to think or consider quietly and calmly
to tend to bring reproach
to have a bearing or influence
So many ways to reflect. Maybe when you first read the word, you thought you knew what it meant, but now maybe you're thinking -- reflecting -- on the nuanced and varied definitions you'd overlooked or forgotten or minimized.
Take time for reflection in your week ahead. Reflect on what you say, see, hear, think, believe, love. Deepen and widen your appreciation for everyone and everything around you. See yourself reflected. See yourself manifesting. See your influence on the world you encounter. Quiet down.
Peace and love to you in the week ahead.
