Reflections of life are a combination of all our life experiences, all the things we have seen, done and all of life’s choices that we have made. Reflections of life are your mirrors into your own life, a place you recall images and slices of your own life. It reflects the good times, bad times, sad times and the happy times, reflecting on emotional highs and lows of your life and everything in between. We all reflect on the loves in our lives that were good, and the loves in our life that were devastating. We are all unique and wonderful individuals, our lives are unique in their own way. Our life and our reflections belong only to us. Our life is the only one exactly like it in the whole universe. Only you, have done all of the things in the exact same way at the exact same time, with the exact range of emotions, and your unique sequence of thoughts about what you are doing and why you are doing it. You have your own unique way of reacting to what you have seen, heard, feel, and how you express yourself about any given situation you encounter from your day to day life.
Reflection in nature and other media is the change in direction of a wave front at an interface between two different media so that the wave front returns into the medium from which it originated. Common examples include the reflection of light, sound and water waves. The law of reflection says that for specular reflection the angle at which the wave is incident on the surface equals the angle at which it is reflected. Mirrors exhibit specular reflection.
In acoustics, reflection causes echoes and is used in sonar. In geology, it is important in the study of seismic waves. Reflection is observed with surface waves in bodies of water. Reflection is observed with many types of electromagnetic wave, besides visible light.
Reflection of light is either specular (mirror-like) or diffuse (retaining the energy, but losing the image) depending on the nature of the interface. Furthermore, if the interface is between a dielectric and a conductor, the phase of the reflected wave is retained; otherwise if the interface is between two dielectrics, the phase may be retained or inverted, depending on the indices of refraction. A mirror provides the most common model for specular light reflection, and typically consists of a glass sheet with a metallic coating where the reflection actually occurs. Reflection is enhanced in metals by suppression of wave propagation beyond their skin depths. Reflection also occurs at the surface of transparent media, such as water or glass.
