          Over the years I have spent many years reflecting on my life. I look at what I am proud of, look at what I would change, and if some of those things were possible. I also reflect on how I want to change and be better for my future self. Looking back at yourself is useful, but also taking a step back from yourself now to see how great you are doing, or if what you might have done wasn't the best choice. It is not always the easiest choice but doing so, and pulling through makes you better at the other end. 

          I also enjoy being open as much as I can about my life, and want people in my life to know what is going on during it. For me, it is similar to reflecting on choice I have made for my son, or how I want to be a greener person.  How can I be a better me, live a long, healthy life, be the best mum I can, and just in general be a good person. Other people out there want to know that they are not the only ones feeling a certain way. It helps them cope, and sometimes understand. It also show people that there are different ways to think about events.

          Don't be sad, don't have pity, and don't be jealous but take a look in the mirror. Reflect on yourself. Have you done something amazing lately? Be proud! That is fantastic! Done something you think could have been handled better? Think about the ways it could have been handled better and fix that for next time. Accept that it happened, and learn from it. Always wished you could have a trait or skill? Look at yourself in the eyes, and tell yourself that you are going to do it! 

How do you reflect? Is it usually positive, negative, or fairly even thought process? Do you work towards a better you? How do you manage it? Tell me in the comments below.
