Evaluate Your Life Day ~ TODAY

 

 

 

Often we are on automatic pilot without regard to what we are experiencing along the way-we just need to get to where we are going.  So much to do-so little time. 

I love the T.S. Eliot quote, reminding us that to find any meaning in life we maybe need to view our experiences differently. 

  • How did it make me feel? 
  • How did others feel? 
  • Would I change anything about the experience?   
  • Did it dull my senses or invigorate them?

Evaluate Your Life Day was created to encourage us to do some serious self-reflection, to take a solid look at the course of our life; making changes when needed and embracing what works. 

Self reflection often helps us focus on the changes we need to make in our lives. Only we can decide what needs to change, and only we can facilitate that change.

An effective way to break down the enormity of such a task is to view your life in categories:  social, educational, spiritual, financial, emotional, etc.  So, the task doesn’t become tedious-go outside, breath the crisp Autumn air and find a sun drenched spot to sit for a bit and reflect on where you are in each category. 

Get a notebook or piece of paper and think about your life right now. Here’s a collage of possible questions you might use to achieve a purposeful evaluation. But don’t miss the final question: “What are you going to do differently after reading this?
