Conversations with Myself: Reflections

Christmas Elf & Candle

Springtime is usually the time for re-birth/re-growth.
A time to throw out the old, and bring in the new.

Spring brings:
• Change (re-birth)
• New life
• New hope
• New opportunity

Change your thoughts and you change your world
– Norman Vincent Peale

Spring is a time to . . .
• Revamp your vision
• Talk – get feedback from others
• Evaluate your competitive advantage
• Do a review of the above and modify your plan
• De-clutter your life

In South Africa, December usually marks the start of our Summer season. This week most people are preparing to take a well deserved break from work (schools have already closed for their Summer break), spending time with the family either at home or going away on holiday somewhere (locally or overseas). We are also preparing to celebrate Christmas next week and herald in the New Year the week after that.

As we come to the end of another year it is time to reflect on the year we have had and which is now coming to an end. While I’m reflecting, I’m asking myself a series of questions such as:

What has been my biggest discovery this past year?

• What have I learnt?
• What were my Aha moments?
• What did I achieve/accomplish?
• What mistakes have I made?
• What were the Laugh out Loud (LoL) moments?
• What are the memories worth saving?
• What were some of my daily blessings?

There is a Proverb about the Journey to Peace which goes like this:

The body heals with PLAY
The mind heals with LAUGHTER
And the spirit heals with JOY

I have also recently read about the three C’s of life i.e. CHOICES, CHANCES, CHANGES

You must make a CHOICE
To take a CHANCE
Or your life will never CHANGE

Looking back over the past year, what choices have you made? What chances have you taken? How has your life changed?

Where are you heading? Are you on a road to nowhere? Do you know where you want to go? How are you planning to get there?

What choices do you need to make? What chances do you need to take? What changes are you willing to make?

Always remember:

Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.
– Dr Seuss

Wishing you and your family
The Gift of FAITH,
The Blessing of HOPE,
And the Peace of His LOVE,
At Christmas and always
