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 ::  homemade coffee cake, scrambled eggs split with Happy for breakfast, meatloaf, roasted chicken with ratatouille, chicken salad and lots and lots of cucumbers

hearing ::  incredible wisdom shared formally and informally at the Women + Girls Alliance Research Summit, Do You Want to Build A Snowman and Let It Go as Happy watched Frozen over and over again on a half-way cross the country road trip we took

smelling ::  the very distinctness of farm air when cows and horses are hanging out nearby

seeing ::  crappie, bass, and sunfish during a mid-morning fishing session on a lazy weekend morning (we really did go fishing!), glass eyes on a sweet old horse, snapping turtles and coyotes wandering the hills, gorgeous country side as we drove across Kentucky and Missouri, fuchsia and purple sunsets in Missouri, snow in mid-April

feeling ::  grateful for sweet, meaningful time with my family and my very fun college roommates.  From night swimming in a hotel pool to dozens of practice round Easter Egg hunts, a good time was had on our Spring Break.

wishing/hoping ::  for an easy transition back into work/school for me and Happy

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