    Hello Shawn, I really enjoyed reading your quotes reflection, thank you so much.

    Reflections of life is a combination of all our lives experiences, all the things we have seen, all the things we have done and all of life’s choices we have made. Reflections of life will be your mirror into your life, where you will recall images and slices of your life. It will reflect the good times, the bad times, the sad times and the happy times, reflecting on the emotional highs and lows of your life and everything in between. You will reflect on the loves of your life which were good, and the loves of your life which were devastating. It is my feeling we are all unique and wonderful individuals, whose lives are unique in their own way. Your life and your reflections belong only to you. Your life is the only one exactly like it in the whole world. Only you, have done all of the things in the exact same way at the exact same time, with the exact range of emotions, and your unique sequence of thoughts about what you are doing and why you are doing it. You have your own unique way of reacting to what you have seen, what you hear, what you feel, and how you express yourself about any given situation you encounter from day to day.

    I also found some quotes I would like to share.

    Norman Vincent Peale: Quotes on Reflection

    Hey Shawn! Thank you for these reflection quotes. I liked the one of Sarah Ban Breathnach the best of all; but they are all excellent ones to ponder upon. I believe Winter is the season for that sometimes. Have a great weekend and Thanksgiving. Wish you well.
