I will not play tug o' war. I'd rather play hug o' war. Where everyone hugs instead of tugs, Where everyone giggles and rolls on the rug, Where everyone kisses, and everyone grins, and everyone cuddles, and everyone wins. --Shel Silverstein
Happy Day 28 everyone!
Can you believe it – Day 28! I love the Silverstein quote from one of his poems – they are magical! And, I couldn’t resist the title for today…because we all remember the famed “Give Hugs – Not Drugs” campaign. Although I am not sure how many drug dealers were transformed on the spot by that alternative option – it would be great if there was big wealth in hugs! Maybe there is? Maybe people would be looking less to drugs for comfort if we lived in a world with a little more love and affection. So…
Day 28: …Not Drugs!
I recruited one of my nephew’s to help me with today’s video. Your activity today is to try to give as many hugs as possible. However you want to do it is up to you. If you want to tell people that this is part of an activity – that is fine. Or, you can just surprise the heck out of someone. It’s your call! I guarantee many of you are nervous about this assignment. I hope so. I am positive this will stretch you into your YES zone!
I can’t wait to hear what this brings up for all of you!
The Fast Lane: I was unable to do my fast until Saturday. So, I decided to not eat at all on Saturday, and was able to stretch it all the way until lunch on Sunday. I was able to not eat for 40 hours. Believe it or not – I didn’t deal with hunger as much as I did looking forward to the “activity” that eating and thinking about eating fills up in my day. Interesting. How did it go for you?
Unplugged: How did this work out for everyone? I was able to unplug completely for about 3 hours on Sunday. This was a very pleasant surprise – and I definitely need to do it more. I can see this being a bigger goal this summer for me!!!
Reminder: Remember, I will be scheduling the conference call for this Thursday night – and to also let me know if you want to continue on with the YES and program.
Hug Help: If you need some more hug inspiration to help you out – here are two of my favorite videos:
Have a wonderful YES hug-filled day!!!!
