Theme: Power of Hugs
“If you’re angry at a loved one, hug that person. And mean it. You may not want to hug – which is all the more reason to do so. It’s hard to stay angry when someone shows they love you, and that’s precisely what happens when we hug each other.”
― Walter Anderson, The Confidence Course: Seven Steps to Self-Fulfillment
Have you ever had the kind of busy day that perhaps leaves you feeling a bit physically disconnected? I have, and I rarely notice this until someone comes up and places a hand on my back to get my attention, and my brain says, “Wow…that felt really good.” 😉
The simplest human touch when one isn’t expecting it, or even when one is expecting it, can deliver such joy and contentment. A hug is a step up, and so many of us don’t meet our daily hug quota.
Next week you will get to know how many hugs you will need for survival, how many you will need for maintenance and how many you will need for growth.
Tell me how you feel about hugging and being hugged. Do you feel uncomfortable if you are hugged by an opposite sex or same sex person? Please email me your answers to the theme by Tuesday.
Can everyone who had been assigned a role to confirm by accepting the role online (www.easy-speak.org). There are still few more roles to be filled. Please sign up to experience the joy and contentment at our next meeting with hugs.
