What's the Definition?

"Backward & Upside Down"
Reflection layout by the amazing Felecia Krech

Have you ever really tried to define something in your life?  You know, really contemplate upon it and put a reasonable, easy-to-understand meaning to it?

Have you ever simply started with the dictionary?

Let's check it out.  This month is all about reflection, so let's define reflection to see it that helps us better know how to use it in order to scrapbook ourselves from the inside out...

re·flec·tion [ri-flek-shuh n]
the act of reflecting or the state of being reflected.
2. an image; representation; counterpart.
3. a fixing of the thoughts on something; careful consideration.
4. a thought occurring in consideration or meditation.
5. an unfavorable remark or observation.
6. the casting of some imputation or reproach.
7. Physics, Optics.
a. the return of light, heat, sound, etc., after striking a surface.
b. something so reflected, as heat or especially light.
8. Mathematics
a. (in a plane) the replacement of each point on one side of a line by the point symmetrically placed on the other side of the line.
b. (in space) the replacement of each point on one side of a plane by the symmetric point on the other side of the plane.
9. Anatomy:   the bending or folding back of a part upon itself.
Also, especially British, reflexion.

I love how Felecia used several "definitions" of reflection in her layout above.  Not only did she "reflect" the images and journaling, but the words she shares indicate how much she has looked in on her life and expectations, carefully considering what she thought life should be and recognizing that what it is now is probably who she was all along.  Whew!  That's some deep stuff, thanks so much for sharing it with us Felecia!
