Hugs

Sometimes you just need a hug

but don't know how to ask for one.

Be on the lookout.

Someone in your life is in that spot,

needing support,

but not knowing how to find it.

Seek them out.

Offer it first.

Share a hug, even if it's messy and imperfect.

Give a tight squeeze, because it matters. Your appreciation matters.

Give away a hug, even if it leaves you feeling uncertain and raw.

If you find one that's yours or belongs to someone you know, please reach out to me at aliveinthefire at gmail dot com so I can ask permission to share it, and gladly provide photo credit. Namaste.
