I am Carol CC Miller, Founder, and CEO of Positive Focus.
Have you ever found yourself at a loss for words? A time where the two most powerful words you know – THANK YOU, simply doesn’t seem to be enough?
We just completed our World Hugs Weekend 2019. After 11 years and 14 world events, I am rendered speechless. Trust me, that doesn’t happen often. Over the past 11 years, we’ve had huggers on 6 continents, over 45 countries, 32 states, and Desmond Tutu joined in twice.
I’ve already started getting pictures and stories in from this year’s event from first-time huggers to those who join me annually and I’m excited to share them with you.
My own hug journey began in January 2008 and I was TERRIFIED, and yet I did it anyway. It changed who I am and because of it, I knew I wanted to create a world event to let people around the world feel seen and know that they matter through the simple gesture of a hug.
I am beyond grateful for all the stories and pictures I’ve seen and heard over the years and I look forward to keeping growing the mission.
I THANK YOU for taking part in World Hugs. I THANK YOU for taking part in Positive Focus. And I THANK YOU for taking part in my life where it is my passion and purpose to heighten your celebrations and lessen your sorrows by helping you focus on LOVE, kindness, and compassion.
I send you LOVE. I send you kindness. And I send you compassion all wrapped up in a BIG HUG.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
