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 ::  black bean pie, Clementines, oatmeal with cinnamon, homemade chicken and vegetable (turnips, green beans, chick peas, spinach, celery, carrots, onions and tomato) soup, pumpkin bread, carrot cake  
hearing ::  the most gorgeous wedding music as our neighbors got married and the groom (who is a brilliant musician) composed all of the music.  Also: the clamoring of a rock on the sidewalk as Happy and I kicked it as we walked home from school one day, Say Something by A Great Big World, Stay With Me by Sam Smith, Stay by Rihanna (someone bought some music for the first time in a awhile) and The Voice Battle Rounds.  Love The Voice and I am obsessed with Pharrell.  For the love, he is just the sweetest.
smelling ::  fresh baked pumpkin bread and crisp fall air (love that smell)
seeing ::  The beautiful young women of the Circle de Luz Class of 2020 be formally inducted into the program. All of Happy’s sweet classmates when I went to have lunch with him.  Oh my goodness, kindergarteners en masse are just the more adorable sight.  Also, lots of wildlife: chipmunks, hawks, ground hogs, turkey vultures, deers, rabbits.  Everyone’s out and about with the shift in weather.      
feeling ::  really grateful for life and the people that have been placed in my world for me to love.
wishing ::  for a little forward momentum on some work projects.  Life keeps getting in the way.  I need it to pipe down so I can just sit and create from scratch for a bit.

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