Bet you’re thinking, “Gee, I certainly hope not!” Sounds a little like something you might have to see the doctor for. That’s hardly the case. Warm fuzzies are something you definitely want, something everyone should collect. Their name alludes to something soft and cuddly, something that feels good… really good! And that’s exactly what they are.
I keep mine in a nondescript manila folder, in a cabinet. I take them out and look at them from time to time. Many are old, old friends, and it cheers me to no end to become reacquainted with them. They make me smile every time, guaranteed! What in the world is a warm fuzzy, you ask?
A warm fuzzy is something someone has said or done that makes you feel really good about yourself. It’s usually unexpected, and very welcome. Everybody should have a collection like this. You know why? Because we forget. We have a tendency to forget the wonderful things we’ve done to make others happy, and that’s very important to remember. It’s especially valuable when things aren’t going so well, and you’re feeling a little down.
There’ve been times in the past when I haven’t been feeling so good about myself and where I am in life, and perusing the contents of the warm fuzzy file always makes me remember the things I’ve accomplished and how appreciative people have been for my efforts. Usually by the time I get to the bottom of the file I’ve completely forgotten how sad I was at the beginning when I pulled it out.
