Music of the Heart – To Myself Ten Years in the Future

Fiona Sit once sang a song called “To Myself Ten Years in the Future”. Do you have plans ten years into the future? It is important to regularly reflect on your life. St. Ignatius once practiced a 5-step Daily Examen: (1) Become aware of God’s presence, (2) Review the day with gratitude, (3) Pay attention to your emotions, (4) Choose one feature of the day and pray from it, and (5) Look toward tomorrow. Zengzi once said “Self-reflect thrice a day, were you diligent in work, trustworthy with friends, thorough in learning?” Ten years is too long to reflect, we should reflect daily so we don’t procrastinate. There is a difference between happiness and joy – we can buy the former but not the latter. When we truly have joy in our hearts, no external events can take it away.
