Friday Reflections

Ariadna shares her Circle de Luz experience

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 :: a boatload of soup and other mild foods like grilled cheese, mashed potatoes and applesauce as a stomach bug hit our house.  I didn’t get it (I washed my hands like a crazy woman), I just ate what I prepared for others.  
hearing :: one of Circle de Luz’s amazing alumnae hijas speak about her CdL experience and loads of holiday cheer as Circle de Luz hosted our annual Holiday Giving Party!      
smelling ::  the smell of fallen leaves and fall setting in       
a week without cardigans
seeing ::  myself in something other than cardigans.  I issued a little challenge myself to try to go cardigan less for a week and, who would have thought, I pulled it off.  And because I knew no one would believe me, I took photographic evidence!
feeling :: so grateful to all the amazing people who make Circle de Luz the amazing organization it is, our supporters, and, most of all, our sweet, sweet girls who honor us with their presence.
wishing ::  to offer some valuable insight when I speak this weekend at the National Renfrew Conference for Eating Disorders.

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