5 HUGS, 2 children, 3 adults (1 husband, 2 grocery store employees)
Ok, so I don’t really believe in horoscopes, but today’s was an inspiration for me. (I am a Leo by the way.)
Take extra time to tend to your appearance and show off a bit today, Leo. Keep your shoulders back and head high. Be the proud person you are. You should feel validated. Your job today is to simply uplift people with your presence. This is no sweat for you. Happiness is right up your alley, so have fun.
Yeah! My horoscope agrees that I should be hugging people! (That’s the way that I read it anyway.) Now, I probably should have heeded all of its advice and if you saw me out and about today you would understand why. I certainly did not look my best. I probably should have at least brushed my hair.
At the grocery store, the kids were acting up and I was feeling very flustered. In the midst of this an employee overheard me say that I needed bacon. He took the time to ensure I knew about the location of the bacon on sale at $1.99/lb!!! I grabbed the bacon and as I was walking away realized that I did not take the opportunity to hug him. At this point he was deep in conversation with someone else. I missed my chance. I was still feeling pretty tired and overwhelmed and wasn’t convinced I would have it in me to hug someone today. Checking out just enhanced this feeling. Little one was trying to climb out of the cart screaming at the top of his lungs while bigger one was trying to pin him down. (They were in one of the “car” carts.) I got my cart full of groceries and turned to leave the store with no hug. On my way out I overheard, “Smile, I haven’t seen you do that all day.” Someone was speaking with the girl who just loaded my groceries. What?! No smile all day? Oh, I can’t possibly leave knowing that. I turned right back around, tapped her on the shoulder and said, “Thank you for helping to bag my groceries. May I give you a hug?” Well, what do you know, she hugged me and smiled. After all of the screaming my little one did, I couldn’t leave with just a hug from her, I hugged the cashier as well. I don’t think the next customer in line minded too much, he was smiling too. What do you think about that, horoscope? I uplifted 3 people with my presence without even needing that extra attention to my appearance.
Please accept this blog as my virtual hug to you.
