Healthy Growth and Stability

What things do we need to make us feel our healthy growth and stability today?  As I created this meditative doodle I furiously wrote these words in this order Love, Security, Affection, Time and Fun.  It's funny how fun didn't come to me so quickly, it's just not a high priority but essential none the less.  Gotta have fun and play once in a while right?  You may say love and affection are the same thing but let me assure you there are many people in life who are loved but do not experience affection.  Affection is as simple as listening and giving someone eye contact when they speak, a hug just for the hell of it, reassuring someone by holding their hand, acknowledging that person matters in your world.  Security is the feeling of safe well being knowing that you will not be hurt both physical or mentally as well as a sense of financial well being.  And finally time.  Time to do the things we enjoy in the life we live and not just exist but thrive.
