Realizing things about yourself can be a bit sudden because while it’s happening you don’t really pay attention to it. When I sat down and thought about ll the things that I have been through in this past semester, I was shocked. I was shocked at how much I’ve grown in these past months but I was thrilled at how much I’d grown as a writer. I have motivation, a voice, my creative processes are back in tact. Reflection can teach you a lot about yourself and who you would like to be. Therefore, you should use reflection graciously, abundantly, and for the most part you do that already.
