Reflection and Self Awareness: Finding truth and Happiness after 50
Before you can act, open yourself to opportunities and consider all the drivers and all the emotions in your life. Ask yourself this: When was the last time you sat down in a quiet place to think? Can't remember? You're not alone. In this busy world, reflection is a gift, and a needful one. Quiet and calm help you to slow down to take stock.
