Give out a hug and a smile!

We are in the new year and their are lots of expectations that come with the new year.  What are you planning for the New Year to put a smile on your face?

Have you added something into you routine that makes you smile daily?

The best medicine  you can give yourself is a hug and a smile.  When you get a hug, it releases a chemical in your body that brings about a since of well being.  This chemical helps provide the right ingredients to increase production in your cells and create the best you.  The chemical can fight disease, give you energy and give you a new perspective.  Laughter brings you from a lower vibration to a higher vibration.  When we laugh, we forget about the previous moment and create a exhilarating now.

I want to tell you a story.  My husband and I were in the mist of a intense fight.  I didn’t want to give in and I wanted him to apologize and prove to me that he was indeed sorry.  The funny thing is he felt the exact same way, and wanted me to apologize.  We were at a stalemate.  I don’t even remember what we were fighting about.  We had already made plans to go to the comedy club with our friends, so we put our fight on hold and pretended like we liked each other.  After we had spent approximately 3o minutes at the club, we were laughing so hard our bellies hurt.  After laughing for about an hour, we forgot what we were fighting about.  In order for the fight to be serious, you have to remember what you are fighting about.  Because we were laughing; it pushed the anger away, brought us to a place of happiness, and we enjoyed each others company.  The other beautiful thing about the night was, the good feeling lasted for a few weeks.

My plan this year:

  1. Not to take things too seriously.
  2. To go to the comedy club a few times.
  3. To hug someone, every chance I get.

The beautiful thing about hugging a stranger is that it is all new.  The chemical that is released can be initiated, this will probably happen with a stranger when it might not happen today with a familiar.  That doesn’t mean that you don’t give you children a hug and a kiss everyday.

Join me this year and lets make the new year awesome!  See you at the comedy club.
