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.

In Life We Do Things

In life we do things. Some we wish we had never done. Some we wish we could replay a million times in our heads. But, they make us who we are, and in the end, they shape every detail about us.

If we were to reserve any of them, we wouldn't be the same person. So, just live, make mistakes. Have wonderful memories. But, never second guess who you are, where you have been, and most importantly where you're going.

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.

There Comes a Day

 

There comes a day when you realize turning the page is the best feeling in the world, because you realize there is so much more to the book than the page you were stuck on.

Honor Other People's Path 

There is no "right" way to grow. See what is beautiful in every person's path, in every religion, and in every belief system. Honor other people's pahts, even if they are different from yours. Be inclusive and loving, and look beyond the form of people's beliefs to the essence. There is no right way; there is only the way that is right for you.
