Spreading love, one hug at a time...

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential
Good morning!
I woke this morning thinking about hugs…
Hugs are great. Hugs are a special connection between two human beings…
A moment of intimacy. Of love. Of understanding…
A moment of time where our guards come down…
Where it is ok to be who we are, where we are, at this exact moment.
They let us know that things will be ok…
I love hugs, and I give as many as I can...
And after the last two years, I hope to bring the hug back.
I hope to break down some of the barriers that have grown between people…
The funny thing is, hugs used to make me a bit uncomfortable. Awkward…
For I was guarded. Perhaps awkward myself…
Not confident with who I was or what I offered…
But, as my place in the world has become more clearly defined in my mind, I give them whenever and wherever I can…
Sometimes with reckless abandon. I am sure it makes some a bit uncomfortable…
That is ok. I do make some people a bit uncomfortable, but I usually am coming with a hug either way…
So I woke today, thinking about hugs. And my hope for the day is that it will be a day filled with hugs…
I hope to bring a bit of joy to the world. A bit of intimacy...
Perhaps some warmth on this December day…
And each hug will mean something different...
“Good morning!!” “I am here for you.” “Are you ok?” “So happy to see you!!” “How have you been?”
Or perhaps, maybe even, “I love you…”
For today I will spread love, one hug at a time.
Ken

Good morning, Ken... I'm all about hugging. And I never stopped... even during the pandemic.

Huge hug fan and I missed the chance to do so in the quarantine faze.  So glad I get to hug my people again!  Hope you have a fabulous day!

Hello Ken - I admit that I have not always been a hugger and in fact, there have been periods of time where I avoided them.  Giving as well as receiving.  I also discovered that was my issue and others were providing them quite often and very freely.  Once again, it's a big world. . .
