Did you ever have one of those days that started out fine and then rapidly spiraled downhill? Where you truly gave something your all, only to have it not work out the way you had hoped and expected?
Today was one of those days for me and without going into detail, suffice to say I’m glad it’s over. My anger and disappointment could power a car half way around the globe but I will take my own advice from several weeks back and simply MOVE ON. In the whole scheme of things this is merely a blip on the radar and is overshadowed by a dozen reasons to be grateful.
I learned a lot about things I didn’t want to know and some about what I do, including the power of a hug. Have you ever given or gotten one that felt so good you just sighed into it and let it last for what felt like an eternity? Isn’t it wonderful? Have you REALLY hugged anyone lately, getting strength or giving strength, or comfort or love? So much can be said with one simple hug.
So with that said, I leave you with this week’s quote, from an unknown author–a smart one who said it well:
“Hugging has no unpleasant side effects and is all natural. There are no batteries to replace, it’s inflation-proof and non-fattening with no monthly payments. It’s non-taxable, non-polluting and is, of course, fully returnable.”
Who will you hug today?
