Hug your kids. Cuddle your dogs. Kiss your significant other. Embrace today like there is no tomorrow. Speak a kind word to a stranger. Tell yourself a single truth about your strengths and weaknesses, and then strive to maintain the former and diminish the latter.
Eat a piece of dark chocolate and savor it. Take a deep breath. Laugh and smile today for the simple joy of it. Make up your mind to be happy. You can do it.
And the two beauties above? They are my snuggle-bugs, J and Gracie, and they washed away a multitude of stress for me this morning. Gratitude for my four-legged children this morning.
