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 :: all sorts of baby birds chirping from the great big trees in our yard as they demand more food from their mamas
smelling :: horse breath! I had a workshop at Triple Play Farm this week and got to love up on the big boys and say hello to the newest additions to the herd– two mini-horses, Felix and Oscar, that were recently rescued. They are a hoot. I mean, seriously, a hoot. Also, I love hay breath.
seeing :: Happy happily running off to meet a teacher at Kindergarten’s Beginner’s Day. Boy, is he excited about school. He even complained about summer the other day– as in it was getting in the way of his being able to start kindergarten. Fingers crossed that he’ll always dig school.
feeling :: so inspired by the women I worked with this week in retreats and workshops as we wrote empowering mission statements, created encouraging manifestos, and even outlined a brilliant new business.
wishing/hoping :: for a lovely weekend with the family, accented by some delicious meals and some precious downtime.
What about you? What were your sensational experiences this week? Please share!
