Near and dear, near and dear,
sometimes we neglect to make it clear,
To those whom we love or say we revere,
That our lives are enriched because they are here.
There are many ways to express gratitude and appreciation to those who enrich our lives and make us better. Unfortunately, much of the space in our head is given over to those who cause us the most grief and discomfort. And even more unfortunately, oftentimes those can be the people who you feel should be giving you the most support. Take today and go through your mental Rolodex and “hug” those who make you feel better about yourself. You can do this spiritually, emotionally, and/or physically–just enjoy the process of remembering those who make you a better you. By the way, don’t forget to give yourself a big ole’ hug as well! You do love and support yourself, don’t you?
