But I also was surprised to learn something about myself. My friends revealed that I am not a good hugger.
Me of all people- Miss Personality and happy-go-lucky and all- was not a good hugger.
In all my life I never knew it, but I wasn't giving real hugs.
I am a side hugger.
And that, I'm told, is not a real hug.
So since then, I think about this every time I hug someone. And people noticed! when I started giving good hugs! Not only were the people I was hugging missing out, but I was missing out.
There is nothing like a good, frontal hug with arms wrapped nicely around you.
I am so thankful that my friends were kind enough to give me a hug intervention. It's really a whole new way of life.
Now doesn't this make you want to hug? Hug as many people as you can today. Don't forget your hubby or wife. And your kids. Even babies. Dogs. A good pillow.
Be open to the idea that there are even things you'd be surprised to learn about yourself.
This is my hug to you.
