Spark Day 12: Reflect with Friday Reflections

Welcome to Spark Day 12!  Every Friday, I reflect on the week that has just passed by doing a little senses exercise.  This practice is a gentle, easy way to tune into how we are doing, what we are experiencing, and what we are grateful for while more acutely tuning into our senses.  It’s a whole heart exercise with plenty of bodily input, if you will.  Because this practice has been so good for me, I want to encourage you to do it, too.  Building some gentle reflection into our weeks is a nice way to stay grounded while maintaining some big picture perspective.  So please join me in 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 ::  roasted broccoli, homemade minestrone soup, hibachi shrimp, onion soup, salad with ginger dressing, spicy shrimp pizza, spaghetti with a homemade mushroom ragu

hearing ::  Happy sing as we write songs about everything these days. From brushing our teeth to eating dinner, everything’s a song.

smelling ::  Body Shop Satsuma Body Butter- this citrusy scent is delicious!  Also pots of soup simmering on the stove (speaking of delicious!).

seeing ::  fun works of art, my team (the Panthers) lose their playoff football game, my new body image students for the first time as the semester just started,  season 2 of Homeland, and my vision board come to life.

feeling :: grateful to get back to routines and settled in (you know, as much as one can settle into life).  Also, excited that I am reading again– I haven’t ready much since mid-Novmeber but I finished 3 books this week.

wishing/hoping ::  for a great day of college-readiness programs on Saturday with our Circle de Luz girls and their amazing mentors!   

What about you?  What were your sensational experiences this week?  Please share!
