8 HUGS, 2 children, 1 5-month old, 4 adults (1 husband, 2 employees at The Little Gym, 1 grade school friend)
Can you believe it? Tomorrow I will officially be more than halfway through my year of hugs. 6 months have flown by. I have changed as a person, a writer, a mother and a friend. (All for the better, of course.) I am more confident in myself and my abilities. I have come to realize just how much better I can make my own life when I am focused on enriching the lives of others.
Recently I have been concerned with others reactions to my hugs and blog. Today I released that from my thoughts. I know who I am and I am a good person with great intentions. It’s amazing the peace that comes along with that knowledge. Did that change the way I interacted with others? No. Did it change the way they interacted with me? No. All it changed was my perception and it turns out I have nothing to worry about. People like me, they like my hugs, they like my blog. And if they don’t? Well, I am ok with that too. I hope I have placed a spark in their mind about the way that things could be if they allowed it.
I am ready to embark on the second half of my journey full of hope, love, and hugs.
Please accept this blog as my virtual hug to you.
