During the evening hours, when I’m winding down and turning off all the outside noise I tend to reflect on the events of my day.

At the end of a day, beginning of a new week, month, or year, most of us take a little time to reflect on our lives by looking back over the past and wandering into the future; pondering our successes, failures and memorable moments that are inscribed in our life’s story. The process of self reflection helps us maintain a conscious awareness of where we’ve been and our journey forward. Reflections is they key to progression and is vital to the Organization and preservation of our dreams, goals and desires.
