The Importance of Reflection
“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow” Albert Einstein
“The past is behind, learn from it.
The future is ahead, prepare for it.
The present is here, live it.” Thomas S. Monson
These last few days of the year are a great time for planning and preparing for the New Year. I suspect that you’re setting goals and making resolutions for this New Year with great excitement and anticipation.
I can’t wait to hear some of the things that God is laying on your hearts for 2011!
Let me encourage you to also take some time to reflect and learn from this past year. Celebrate the successes, mourn the losses, anticipate the opportunities still to come!
Here are a couple of great blogs with some suggestions for reflecting:

Take some time and process these questions, journal your answers and then share them with your spouse or a close friend.
Here’s to 2011!
