A dear friend of mine recently brought this gift to my attention by John O’Donohue.
What a lovely reflection.
I thought I’d share…
AT THE END OF THE DAY: A MIRROR OF QUESTIONS
What dreams did I create last night? Where did my eyes linger today?
Where was I blind? Where was I hurt without anyone noticing?
What did I learn today?
What did I read?
What new thoughts visited me?
What differences did I notice in those closest to me?
Whom did I neglect?
Where did I neglect myself?
What did I begin today that might endure?
How were my conversations?
What did I do today for the poor and the excluded?
Did I remember the dead today?
Where could I have exposed myself to the risk of something different?
Where did I allow myself to receive love?
With whom today did I feel most myself?
What reached me today? How deep did it imprint?
Who saw me today?
What visitations had I from the past and from the future?
What did I avoid today?
From the evidence—why was I given this day?
