Time spent on self-reflection is never meaningless

We are usually caught up in the day-to-day aspects of life and we tend to ignore (maybe it’s just an excuse) the most significant things that makes us feel worthwhile. Life is not just about being happy, it’s also about having the freedom and feeling how worthy you are.

Many people tend to lose sight of their goals, so did I. My dreams were buried by the type of infatuation, of which I came to despise. Through my journey of transformation, I came to realize a broader perspective on relationships, values and I took a closer look of my self-worth.

Self-reflection is an important process and it helps us to understand what we need to do to be on the right track – that includes where we spend our time and resources, our reaction to people and situations. Key questions to ask yourself:

  • Is this the person you really want to be?
  • Are you in the right place?
  • Why do you feel trapped?
  • What are your inner roadblocks?

Even if it feels intimidating, sometimes walking out the front door is the best thing you can possible do. Get out there and see what happens.

  • Trust yourself and learn to listen to your intuition
  • It’s OK to take baby steps, things will get better
  • Accept every emotion and let them push you to be stronger
  • Never take life for granted
  • Experiment new things
  • Love yourself, flaws and all


Reflection of light, sound and water waves ~

I am a summer girl and lying in the sun makes me happier. I was in Koh Samui last week, my usual weekend getaway for self-reflection. I stayed along Bang Rak Beach and I enjoyed the tranquil environment as there are only very few beachfront boutique resorts. Perfect place for me!

I’m unable to share tips on Koh Samui here because all I did during this trip – sun tan, eat, drink, listen to the waves and repeat. It takes a lot of courage to travel solo and it takes a whole lot of patience for one to learn about themselves. Remember, it is always a work in progress. I’m still working out the life ahead.

People change and relationships change. Some people will continue to be indecisive, restless and put pressure on themselves seeking that particular life that has eaten them inside out. Is it worth fulfilling or just because it is a comfortable route? I don’t envy them. I learned about myself by reflecting on the life I left behind. How far I have come to be the person I am now. I am not the same. More than ever before, I have the control over my life choices and that is exactly what I desire.

Sometimes it is about the rare moments of realization…

  1. Hi Jocelyn,

    I enjoyed this post very much. Mountains work much better for me than beaches but the feeling after coming back is probably the same. The brain works faster without questioning a lot of side things and overcomplicating things.

    Great photos and one big (Thumb Up) for Solo Traveling.
