A journey is what reflection means to me. I often go for a jog around the neighborhood to do some reflection. In this, my thoughts are narrated by a pair of shoes as it goes along a journey. This allows oneself to be put into that shoe.
When you are reflecting on something, maybe it is something negative you have done or a rough point in your life. You can be like this pair of shoes, blocked by this door. What would you do?
The thing is, the journey to reflection may seem straight and long; the end might look dark.
There might be bumps and setbacks you might find it hard to overcome along the way. Look from a different perspective maybe?
However, the solution or the destination might not even be the end goal at the end of the day.
And as you continue, with determination and grit, these minor issues can be easily conquered. Just like going down a slope.
After all, there is always light at the end of the tunnel, the end line to the journey. Whether you had come to a resolution does not matter much.
At the end of the day, you are not alone, people like family and friends are there for you to rely on in times of need.
