Friday Reflections


Every Friday, I reflect on the week that has just passed by doing a little sensory 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 the last week:
tasting ::  broiled sweet potatoes, slow-cooker macaroni and cheese, crab dip, hummus, guacamole, late night HOT chocolate chip cookies delivered to us by our sweet neighbor, birthday cake,  roasted broccoli, chicken noodle soup 
hearing :: squeals of delight as three cousins navigate an amusement park
smelling ::  roasted veggies, sunscreen, fresh early morning air that hints just slightly of fall

seeing ::  the shocked look on Happy’s face when his cousins surprised him on our amusement park outing

feeling ::  grateful, loved, blessed and also every bump and bounce on the amusement park rides.  Shock absorbers for life (or after 30 when you ride carny rides)!

wishing ::  for a great first day of body image class next Friday!

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