    on reflection

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to give me your considered opinion concerning the interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    On reflection she felt sure that you have done the right thing.

    on reflection = upon second thought

    On reflection = after serious thought or consideration.

    If you have second thoughts you change your mind.
