The days do get busy. I will grant you that. Sometimes it is hard to find time to stop and reflect. The kids need this ready for the next day. The boss is emailing us late at night with a question that he needs answered. We've got household chores to do, bills to pay, groceries to get, and many other things to finish.
Yet, if we don't stop and take notice of our day, we're missing out on so much. We are giving up a big part of our life's experience that we will never get back. When that day is done, there is no way to go back and redo it once again. You either grab it while you have it, or you can just cross it off of your day calendar.
Stopping to focus on what you have learned today gives you the opportunity to gain so much more out of your day. It allows you to be a participant, rather than an observer going from one moment to the next. It gives you a chance to embrace tomorrow with more knowledge than you have today.
Stopping to focus on what you learned today helps you to see the possibilities that lie ahead. It helps you find the answers you seek to moments and experiences and situations in your day. Without stopping to reflect, you miss those moments and they could end up becoming a key piece of your life's puzzle.
My question to you today is "what have you learned"? Please leave a comment below and share your reflections of what you have learned today.
