Hugs

Well it is Words Crush Wednesday once again and I spent all day crippled in my own sadness, griped by my own, self-made fears.  I received many virtual hugs today and it got me going again. But lets be real, there is nothing like the real deal.

And when you are getting a true, sincere hug. You know it. You can feel it kiss your soul.

Hugs for happiness

I have actually written about hugs before and I am sure this won’t be the last time. If you love hugs and want to read more about them, you can read my previous post by clicking on this link:  Hugs, Hugs, and More Hugs!

P.S. Today is NOT National Hug Day. But being it’s an annual thing I figured I’d tag it so it’s lumped on that page. Thanks for understanding!>

Happy New Year!

Well, here we are just a day away from completing the first week of this new year, 2016! So far I’d say my year is working out pretty well. I really hope yours is as well.

Words Crush Wednesday is still on the menu for 2016 and with this first Wednesday of the year I give a quote by American country singer, Brad Paisley:

Brad Paisley quote

It does not matter that today is not January first. Each day is a new day and can be the beginning of a new 365-day cycle. So make the most of it and always try to create the best regardless of the circumstances surrounding you.

This Month on GoFundMe: Mental Health

quote-on-stigma-health-57-healthyplace
I do not know if you are aware but I have a link here on Memee’s Musings called This Month on GoFundMe, it is listed in the sidebar under Linky-Dinks Blogroll. Every month or so I feature a different Go Fund Me crowdfunding cause, always something or someone that I personally find worthy. Sometimes they are people I know and sometimes they are not.

This month I decided to highlight a young woman who is part of a social group that I am in. I have not yet met Lourdes yet personally though my online interactions with her have always been nothing short of sweet, kind, and respectful. I like her.

So when I learned recently that she had been hospitalized and diagnosed with a mental health disorder my heart went out to her. I carry a stigma too. It is not an easy life, living with mental illness. I stumbled upon her GoFundMe post yesterday asking for help during this transition period. She has been placed on unpaid medical leave at her job and thus her income and medical insurance are instantly gone, but still must pay her housing costs as we all do. And so she has become this month’s GoFundMe cause. Please read Lourde’s story here.
