Friday Reflections


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 ::  vegetable soup, baked squash chips, sweet potato hash with a soy honey sauce, strawberry shortcake cheesecake, a perfect avocado, a sweet and crisp honey crisp apple, hummus

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

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

This post was inspired by Teacher Goes Back to School who was inspired by Pink of Perfection’s Five Sense Friday.

    Tasting: the decadent gluten free whole food chocolate cake preceded by the most delicious filet minion ever. (it was my birthday, I indulged)
    Hearing: the joyful “mom!!”‘s when I walked through the door after being away for 3 sleeps.
    Smelling: the mini carnations my kids bought for me
    seeing: an old friend
    feeling: fully relaxed and at peace while spinning yarn uninterrupted in the hotel room.
    wishing/hoping: for the next 2.5 months to go off without a hitch, and accomplishing everything that is on top of the important list.

    that was a nice reflection. Good way to start (ish.. It’s tuesday already..) my week.
