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 ::  roasted broccoli, tacos, oatmeal, french toast, a ballpark hot dog, and loads of soup as I started the week with a bit of a cold.  
hearing ::  Happy read more and more.  A fearless 3rd grader belting out ROAR! as part of the school talent show.  Cheers and jeers at the Panthers vs. Seahawks game (I was lucky enough to be invited to go by a friend which was both fun and torturous given the outcome).
smelling ::  a new hibiscus and lime candle in the kitchen  
seeing ::    hundreds of kids Trick-or-Treat at the annual town Halloween March.  Kids parade down Main Street while shop owners and locals give out candy.  A sweet little small town tradition.         
feeling :: a little pooped from the cold but mostly just grateful that the work I’ve done this year to be healthier worked and it didn’t devolve into a sinus infection and bronchitis.  I don’t think I’ve ever just had a cold.  That feels like a win.
wishing ::  for a lovely weekend as we celebrate an engagement in the family.

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