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 ::  cornbread salad, shrimp salad, black-eyed pea salad, brussel sprouts salad, greek salad (I feel like Forrest Gump but with salad instead of shrimp.  This kinda salad, that kinda salad, and that other kinda salad), corn chowder, pimento cheese and Fritos, sweet potato hash with a soy sauce and honey sauce, lemon blueberry layer cake and citrus water (a jug of water loaded with sliced oranges and lemons).  Also S’mores.

hearing ::  medical students pondering their pasts, present, and future, shrieks of glee at the community pool.

smelling :: Old Bay coated shrimp, Choose Happiness candle (from Target).

seeing ::  baby frogs, jumping fish, and sunning turtles.  Also The Peachoid.  Have you seen House of Cards?

feeling ::  wind whip our faces on a fast boat drive on the lake, full-hearted over a delightful little week with all sorts of different family time.

wishing ::  for a really productive work week after having a week off to play with Happy and feeling really behind!

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