It also marks 8 years of me stepping WAY out of my comfort zone of being afraid to be ‘seen’ and doing it anyway. Standing there with a free hug sign was truly one of the scariest things I’ve done on a public scale, and it is quite possibly the best thing I’ve done for myself, too, so thank you for standing there with me.
Thank you, hugs for you have allowed me to witness thousands of people and hopefully infuse their moment, their day, and their life with a little kindness and positivity. And letting them know they matter to me, they matter to the world, and most importantly, they matter to them.
And thank you, Juan Mann, for starting a movement that does heal the world – one hug at a time.
I didn’t choose the hug life; the hug life chose me.
What will the next 8 years bring? Hopefully, more love, laughter, happiness, and of course, a world of hugs.
Big hugs and much LOVE!
