At the End of the Day: A Mirror of Questions

It can be all too easy to let days go by, absent any type  of reflection. We get  so busy, caught up in the doing, that we forget to  wonder how we are doing, and if we are doing well. Perhaps you don’t know where to start. If so, I offer you the following questions as place to begin to check in with God and yourself, a space to reclaim the sacred in your everyday moments.


At the End of the Day:    A Mirror of Questions

by John O’ Donohue


What dreams did I create last night?

Where did my eyes linger today?

Where was I blind?

Where was I hurt without anyone noticing?

What did I learn today?

What did I read?

What new thoughts visited me?

What differences did I notice in those closest to me?

Whom did I neglect?

Where did I neglect myself?

What did I begin today that might endure?

How were my conversations?

What did I do today for the poor and the excluded?

Did I remember the dead today?

Where could I have exposed myself to the risk of something different?

Where did I allow myself to receive love?

With whom today did I feel most myself?

What reached me today? How deeply did it imprint?

Who saw me today?

What visitations had I from the past and from the future?

What did I avoid today?

From the evidence – why was I given this day?
