When someone we trust hugs us for a long time, we often begin feeling a bit tight and stiff, but gradually release into the hug, into its comfort, letting go of our tension and yielding to the moment. We accept the hug. We let go of our busyness and beliefs that we aren't worthy of rest, attention, affection, slowing down. Today, let Love hold you that way.
