Have You Hugged Someone Today?

Filed under: Motivation — by at 1:54 pm on Thursday, August 27, 2009

With my husband being in hospital with pneumonia since last Monday and physical contact being limited by protective garb, i have been thinking a lot about hugs. Like the power of smiles, hugs are free to give, yet can mean so much to receive.

Hugs can:

  • acknowledge an individual’s existence;
  • offer comfort and support;
  • say “I understand”;
  • uplift one’s spirit;
  • offer hope; and,
  • celebrate a moment.

Isn’t it amazing how one simple act can do so much!

I can only imagine the impact fellow SOBCon: Biz School for Bloggers alum Gail Lynne Goodwin and her husband Darryl Slattengren will have when they circumnavigate the world small prop plane,  delivering 100,000 hugs on their Global Hug Tour.

Have you hugged someone today?

Hey Steve, thanks for stopping by! And thanks for the hug. How is it going out on the farm?

Oh Glenda, I’m so sorry to hear he’s in hospital – that must be hard for you both. Here’s a huge virtual hug for you

Sending virtual hugs to you and your husband. I’m so sorry to read that he is ill and in hospital. Wishing him a speedy recovery.
Hope that you aren’t feeling too lost and lonely without your husband around at home.

Hope hubby’s better soon.

Hugs are great! And how about the Levity Project where you get together and laugh for 15 minutes.
