As Water Reflects the Face

by Cynthia Bergsbaken Photography

A wise person once said, "As Water reflects the face, so one's life reflects the heart." -Proverbs 27;19 (NIV)
Today, I faced a reality in my life. I at times, will make hasty decisions. These hasty decisions have caused me pain along with others who are involved. These hasty decisions are showing up as pain created from not taking the time and meditating on the experience prior to deciding. If you feel negative in anyway and you feel you need to jump to a quick decision about something, I ask you to sit and meditate on it first. Take time, relax the mind and just feel the situation while meditating. When you can calm the mind, you are more likely to make better choices for yourself.
When making a decision, make it for yourself. At times, I have found myself making decisions based on knowing that someone needs help or someone would like...... When knowing this, at times, I don't slow down and take in account how my decision to help them will affect me and my life. Take time and ask yourself, “does this bring me joy to do this?” Or are you making yourself do it cause you feel guilty or you feel you need to. If you still don't know, take paper and write down what the pros and cons of your choice would be before making it. I hope this helps someone else make a good decision that creates for them joy in their life. If we don’t fill our own cups first before helping others, we will soon be empty, not being to help anyone including ourselves in life.
