“If you are what you were meant to be, you would set the world on fire.”
st. catherine of siena
It’s easy to get lost in the day, week and even the month. We all know people who are so driven they blink and a whole year is gone. This is not about being driven and productive. We all love to accomplish and engage in new activities and opportunities. But we should also be mindful of remaining very connected to who we are and the people we choose to include in our lives.
To make sure we keep the connection, we need to consciously set aside time for self-reflection. This is different than the time we take for prayer or meditation. This time is specifically focused on questions about where we are in our life: our goals, our behavior, and our spiritual health. We can’t be of any good to other people unless we are first good to ourselves. So we must set aside time to unplug from everybody and everything. This will help make sure we are in touch with the deepest part of our soul so we can be whole for the people and the world we care about.
