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).
hearing :: squeals of delight during Happy’s soccer practice, lots of funnies from Happy including the fact that he is changing his name to Jog because he doesn’t like to write lower case As
smelling :: coconut body butter that I dragged back out in order to coax more spring (but not too much, I am not calling for summer!) out
seeing :: aqua blue toe nails, baby blue skies, new eggplant purple leaves on our Smoke tree, gorgeous flowers with cherry blossom branches in a bouquet that Happy and BF gave me, dozens of plastic Easter eggs hidden over and over again inside and outside our house because Easter Egg hunts never get old
feeling :: excited about Spring Break and slowing down for a little bit to enjoy hanging with my darling boy
wishing/hoping :: good health for those I love and care about who are facing wellness challenges
