A while back my (then) supervisor attended a student affairs conference. She brought back a list of quotes that we discussed in the Residential Life department meeting. Many of these really piqued my interest and I decided that I would write about these when I returned to the blogosphere. This is the first in a series of rants based on these quotes.
You need to believe in the power of reflection.
Reflection. A word that I befriended in my graduate work at Bucknell University. Initially I was somewhat skeptical of my reflective writings. My exercises in reflection
s seemed to focus not on what I thought about often but on what I thought would be interesting to an outsider. As I worked on autobiographical pieces to document my identity development I often revisited collections of memories that I had left unattended for years. Why these memories became the highlights of my reflection papers, I cannot say. They were memorable for some reason.
