     <3 this. I want to print it out and hang it up as a beautiful reminder to share what is hidden. I try to wake slowly and allow myself time to just BE and for the ideas in my head to slowly swirl around before getting out of bed. What I allow to be hidden is my sadness and loneliness. I've only recently started sharing my sadness publicly (as the "Bubble Hug Free Hug Fairy" people expect me to be upbeat all the time) so I hid my tears. As I started to show them it helped others to open up more too. The reaction of others was so kind and many said that when I allowed myself to be sad and show it, it helped them to release their feelings too. Let us all BE Fully who we are and be gentle enough to wake up slowly. HUG from my heart to yours!
