Welcome to the Reflection Pool

What inspires you…can inspire others.

We are passionate about creating a welcoming and caring environment for employees, patients, and families. To keep us true to our mission and core values of reverence, integrity, compassion, and excellence as we work and serve others, we use reflections at the start of every meeting. Reflections can create a dialogue and a new reality by inviting us to notice what we may not have noticed before, which in turn can positively transform how we think and feel about ourselves, others, and the world.

Feel free to browse our Reflection Pool for inspiration for your next reflection – whether to be shared with a group or for you personally. We hope this is a resource you find useful and come back to frequently.

In addition, we invite you to inspire others with a submission of a short story, poem, sacred story, scripture, or famous quote that encourages others to reflect on their personal or collective experience—in our being and in our doing.

Don't Settle

The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it.

Keep taking the steps that will get you closer to a career you love.

Humility

Humility: accepting ourselves and others just as we are—with limitations, vulnerabilities, and imperfections included—as equally valuable and beloved by God without having to prove our worth by what we accomplish, what we own, or what we do right. 



Humility is about slipping underneath judgements by which we limit ourselves and one another to love and act fearlessly with power and authority.

Based on Our Choices

Everything you do is based on the choices you make. You can't blame it on your parents, past relationships, your job, the economy, the weather, an argument, or your age. You are responsible for every decision and choice you make.

Prayer for Inner Peace

Lord, help me cultivate peace within myself. I am so prone to create chaos, which only leads to panic, and ultimately, confusion, and fear. And, in this confusion and fear, I freeze myself from action.  

I find myself stuck, and this only creates more fear, panic and confusion. I know I have peace within because you are within.  Lord, help me to embrace you. Help me to embrace my peace within and have the courage to act.  Amen.
