Friday Reflections is all about reflecting on the week by observing our senses. My hope is that this will be a gentle, easy way to tune into how we are doing and what we are experiencing weekly when journaling in general can feel so daunting.
Now, for this week’s Friday Reflections (with each sense as your inspiration, consider how experiencing it impacted your week).
Here is my sensory round-up for this week:
tasting :: bacon wrapped chicken, garlic parmesan risotto, black bean tortilla pie (a staple at our house), edamame, crab dip, and guacamole.
hearing :: really exciting ideas about an upcoming project and really exciting proposals about other possibilities. My head is kinda full and I am in desperate need of what I call a mid-year tweak where I sit down, survey the scene, and look forward with a clear vision and mission in mind so I don’t commit to doing things simply because I can but instead commit to the things that really make my heart soar and where I can make the most significant impact. I am hoping that mid-year tweak happens before the end of May!
smelling :: the night sky redolent with fresh-cut grass. This is actually one of my favorite scents of all time because it reminds me of high school soccer season– both when I was in high school and when I was a coach. Those memories are some of my favorite from both my school years and teaching years.
seeing :: a little Fairy house, complete with a fairy garden, waiting for occupants.
feeling :: very grateful for all the mamas who have touched our family’s lives– mothers, grandmothers, birth mothers- lots of women who have made our family better.
wishing/hoping :: for clarity and a more narrow focus. In some ways, it is nice to have a lot of things that light my fire. In other ways, I can feel sorta scattershot sometimes. I really want to focus my energy for deeper impact in the work that I do choose to do.
