Free eBook “Life Lessons: The Best Self-Reflections From 108 Bloggers” by Abubakar Jamil and Farnoosh Brock.
Self-reflections of the soul define those bittersweet moments in life that resurface now and again, catching us off-guard, showing up unplanned and uninvited, and asking us the questions we would rather avoid altogether on an otherwise ordinary day.
What is self-reflection?
“Human self-reflection is the capacity of humans to exercise introspection and the willingness to learn more about their fundamental nature, purpose and essence.”
What do you wish you had known when you were younger? What have you learned from the mistakes of your past, from the choices of your life, and from the roads not taken and dreams yet to fulfill?
We do not wake up one day and decide to reflect on the yesterdays of our youth. We instead go with life’s flow until something along the way prompts us to stop and think. In that moment, we realize that before we can plan for more of the future, it would be wise to learn a little from the past. Self-reflection does not make an appointment to show up.
It seeps in from the invisible corners of our mind, spills over from the edges of our heart and finds a way to capture our attention. Self-reflection starts slow but builds up fast. A song, a voice, a smell, a picture, or a mere thought can all trigger the memories buried long ago and bring them to surface faster than any diver can swim up for air.
