Happiness is a box of hugs!
August 19: Tell us: How do you share happiness?
Today is the final day of the Celebrate Community Blog Hop. It’s been a really amazing event. I feel so much closer to my readers and to those whose blogs I read as a part of this. Thank you so much for sharing of yourself and giving. This wasn’t a book tour or a promo event like so many of these hops are, this was just for the fun of it and to help us all get to know each other a little better. I look forward to doing something like this again next year. I hope you’ll join me then.
Today’s prompt is about happiness and how we share it. For me, happiness is a moving target, something I always have difficulty pinning down. But I know I’m happiest when I’m surrounded by the people I love. I’ve gotten to the point in my life where I no longer try to force friendships with people with whom it’s not meant to be. I can enjoy people as who they are without feeling like they have to like me. The people I call true friends are those I can be myself with, who I can let my guard down around and not worry about being judged to gossiped about.
I am a physical person. I like to touch and be touched. I have been known to hold hands with friends, love to hug and snuggle and tend to always have a term of endearment at the ready. I love big. I love hard. I find happiness in making my friends happy. Both my first love and my husband have said being loved by me can be uncomfortable, even a little overwhelming. I don’t know how else to do it. Now, even my friends who aren’t as touchy feely as I am are used to it and roll their eyes. But they will never wonder how I feel about them. They will never worry if I’m mad at them, because if I am I will tell them. I wear my heart on my sleeve and give of it without reservation. Yes, it’s been broken, but the love I’ve received in return is more than worth it.
Thank you to everyone who has been reading along and participating. Please check out the other blogs who have been posting during EID (find the list here).
