Today, I don’t know what to write. I don’t feel sad exactly, but neither do I feel very happy.
My health is worse again – the low grade fever has returned and I’ve spent the day feeling exhausted and alternating between being too hot or shivering. Not nice! The weather is grey and miserable looking and I also received a reply to an email I had sent, which left me feeling pretty disappointed. In short, I’ve been coasting through the day feeling ok.
But “ok” just won’t cut it when it comes to The Pollyanna Plan and my mission to improve my health through the power of happy, positive feelings. I need to do a lot better than ok
So, there I was sitting on the sofa, laptop (appropriately named) on my lap, staring at an empty screen, looking forlorn and fed up, when my Mum came over and sat next to me and said two magic words, “group hug!”
At that moment, both our rescue dogs came rushing over, tails wagging and rested their heads in our laps, as we all joined in a big group hug. It was so cute and instantly lifted my spirits.
Day 77, Reason 77: Today I am happy and grateful for hugs.
The power of a hug and being surrounded by love really does work wonders. As I’ve been writing this post, I recalled a video I’d seen on YouTube a few months ago about people giving out free hugs. Take a look – you need to watch to the end for the good bits.
So, today I’m sending you all a big hug. Please feel free to pass it on. 🙂
