Hug Me Do

Don't you think the world would be a better place if we all hugged each other more? This man proves that theory. If you haven't seen this video, you must. Grab a tissue.

Inspiring Story! Free Hugs Campaign (music by Sick Puppies)


Thanks to Jenny for posting it and to Lushy for reminding me again how powerful it is. I can't wait to hug both of you at TequilaCon next Spring!

Yes, this is a great video. Both Brooke and Lushy directed me to it. Great ideas are contagious! :-)

I'm glad you posted this. I agree everyone should hug more. I know it to be true this week. My job has become hell because the owner of the place I work fired my boss, which was the best boss there could be. She had done nothing wrong. He was just a greedy bastard. So I sent it to her to show some love.
Thanks :)

Lushy said...

There will be much hugging going on.

I saw this at Lushy's.

It truely made me cry. And I'm not even PMS'ing!

People are so afraid to hug anymore. But then, it used to be a safe thing to do.

Today is catch-up-on-two-months-of-sizzle-day! So, in a nutshell: I miss you like crazy too and that was easily one of the awesome-est weekends of my whole entire life (if that wasn't a word before, it is now). Can I see you again sometime? How does next weekend sound? And also, I'm really, really proud of all the work you have been doing with the book. No, it isn't easy. Yes, it can be incredibly confronting. But you're sticking with it through the discomfort because you're more committed to getting something out of it than to being comfortable. That is what I love about you more than anything. You make me BEAM!!!

I love you, Jonesy!! xoxo Bird

I like how it turned to color when the first hug happened :-)

... having been raised in a family that didn't have any touching/hugging except for powerful slaps across the face if we pissed off a parent, I grew up *so* good-touch-deprived, such that during my wild/free college years I got myself into situations&relationships I perhaps should not have, but I was driven by this at-that-time-not-understood need to. be. touched.

Happily, hugs and snuggles and cuddles are a huge part of my life with Kosh :-)
