Friday Reflections

hungry c

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 ::  grilled veggies including what may have been the last corn on the cob of the season for us, honey crisp apples (traded corn for those, I reckon), lemon orzo chicken meatball soup, blueberry muffins, chicken and wild rice casserole, and crab beignets   
smelling ::  tilled earth, rain, the crisp, richness of fall air

seeing ::  a three inch caterpillar chowing down on a leaf, Happy’s first soccer game of the fall, Fall TV shows, Happy joyfully run at the kick-off of his school’s running program (that I went to in order to run with him but he told me to just watch instead as I would slow him down.  Maybe if I practice more, he said, I can run with him next year.).      

feeling ::  chilly as Fall arrived without much of a transition from upper 80s to upper 60s

wishing ::  for a lovely, inspirational, and heart warming time at the Passion. Purpose. Peace retreat that I am facilitating in Nashville

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