自我反映(一)——新的开始 / Self-Reflection (1) – A New Beginning

2016年终于都过去了。
若是要我以一句话来描述我在2016年的历程,我只能找到两个字来形容——迷失。因此不知道从何时开始,心底里就有一股渴望,希望2016年赶快过去。
而如今当2017年到来了,在第一场烟火绽放的爆裂声中,却又似乎感觉有点彷徨,只因在内心深处仿佛有好多好多事情等着我去做,还有一条好长好长的路等着我去走。

在我的珍爱计划里,我必须做的其中一个项目就是每日写一篇日记,可是当我想要落实的时候,却发现不知从何写起,更发现自己其实并没有那么多的时间去把心中的所思所想落成文字。
于是,在反复思量之后,逐决定从2017年开始,尽量每日睡前用十分钟的时间做自我反映。
所谓自我反映,不过是回头看看一日所发生的一切,然后再想想究竟自己是不是做到了应该做的事,还是做错了某些事,或说错了某些话。我想以这样的方式来提醒自己定下的目标。
今天是2017年的第一天,就让我以这一小段文字来做一个好的开始,在临睡前把自己心中所想记录下来.
在2017年里,除了尽量实践我的珍爱计划之外,我想以几个字来走这全新的一年。而这几个字与我的珍爱计划也是息息相关的,可以说是只要把这几个字真正地做好,我的珍爱计划就一定能够顺利的完成。
这几个字就是:
正念(既是活在当下)——我希望能够时时保持正念,体验每一个当下的喜悦。
感恩——我希望能够培养一颗真正感恩的心,对于每一个人或是每一件发生的事都心存感恩,不论那个人或是那件事是好是坏。
慈悲——在感恩之后,我希望能够有一个宽容的心去包容所有我曾经排斥的人、事、物,从而提升自己的爱心,达成真正慈悲的心去造福这个社会……

Self-Reflection (1) – A New Beginning
Finally, 2016 is over.
If there is one thing I can say about 2016, that will be the word “lost”.
Henceforth, it was pretty natural for me to wish for 2016 to be over as soon as possible.
However, as I witnessed the fireworks and saw the footsteps of 2017 approaching, I was also feeling lost, as I could see that there are many things awaiting me to do and the road ahead seems to be very far and long.
One of the items I have put into my Project L.O.V.E is to write a diary daily but it has never happened so far. I was unable to put my thoughts into words, especially when I was busy with the other stuffs, mostly meditation.
I spent some time to think about what will be my next steps and came upon this idea of noting down self-reflections daily. It doesn’t need to be a lengthy essay, but just some pointers to look back at what I have done for the day, and reflect upon myself.
Thus, let me begin 2017 with this short paragraph on this very first day of the year before I sleep.
In order to achieve my Project L.O.V.E, I shall abide by the following principles so that I won’t slip along the way as I search for my own inner-self and inner-peace:
Mindfulness – I shall maintain mindfulness at all times as much as I can, so that I can live life at that very present moment.
Thankful – I shall feel thankful for whatever that I have now, for whatever that may happen and for whoever I may meet in my daily life, be it good or bad.
Compassion – Being thankful is not enough, I need to be able to develop forgiveness towards people or things which / whom I dislike now. This will help to develop a deeper sense of compassion within myself and make me a better person. And with that, I hope to contribute more to the society.
