What is the right number of hugs you need per day?
I was doing some research on the well known family therapist Virginia Satir and came across her hug therapy formula. 4 hugs for survival, 8 hugs for maintenance and 12 HUGS for growth. Well, I must be a shriveled up piece of seaweed.
Then I got to thinking that maybe hugs could come in different ways. I did hug lots of Redwood trees. Maybe those count. I do tend to hug my first cup of coffee in the morning.
If I see a dog and I can sneak in a hug I do that too. And I want to give a hug to the rabbits and the California Quail I see running all over. Do those count?
So I’m looking to be creative here in the hug area.
Meanwhile, I am also looking at ROCKS along the coast and learned a new word today. Tafoni. I took a few pictures of their formation. I LOVED the tiny pebbles nestling in the carved out rock. Time. Only millions of years. And we worry about tomorrow. Take some action today.
