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 ::  chicken and rice wonton soup, broiled sweet potato wedges, Tuscan white bean soup, Caesar salad, roasted mushroom, broccoli and purple onions with a homemade garlic lemon vinaigrette mixed with barley, and a brownie.    
hearing ::  a very old school jam– Supersonic– and Happy tell jokes as we walked to school together as a family
smelling ::  fresh baked brownies (they were at the Circle de Luz meeting mentioned below and they smelled divine)

seeing ::  our gorgeous new Class of 2020 hijas and their parents at our parent meeting as we prepare to induct them into the Circle this weekend. Adorable girls, sweet, sweet parents.    

feeling ::  like my heart is full and so, so proud of the newest Circle de Luz hijas and the amazing women who make this organization not just run but shine.

wishing ::  for a lovely induction ceremony so that each girl and her family know just how honored we are to be in community with them.

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