I happen to belong to a hugging tribe.
We hug each other all the time.
leaning into them
really feeling the hug
the loving energy
But sometimes it happens that I want a hug and no one is around..
it happened the other night
so I sent an email out to a friend
I said I would really like a hug
It was at 1 or 2 in the morning and I really didn't expect a response until much later
Only 15 minutes past and here came a hug
a warm, ethereal, hug
I love the internet
and my friends
Here's one for you if you if you want one
Hugs make me feel good...
A hug is the shortest distance between friends. ~Author Unknown
Hugs make things better..the good and the bad.
I really should do this more often...
Not too long ago I was watching an interview
with author SARK, Susan Kennedy.
she said she hugged herself every morning and we should too..
then she promptly threw her arms around herself and started kissing
her hands and arms, shoulders, and saying
I love you, I love you
I happened to be feeling less than lovable at that moment so I thought, why not?
I threw my arms around myself...
did a bit of kissing...
I really opened my heart to myself
I said I love you..
and to my surprise I started crying,
to my surprise it my hug felt so comforting, and nice, and kind...
Hugs are good
even if self administered.
I think Leo Bascaglia said we need a minimum of a dozen a day..
