Hugs for you!

Hugs are quite useful.

They provide stretching exercise to short people & bending exercise to tall people.

My blogging buddy Ray posted this morning  here  and as always, he inspired me.  I have tried repeatedly to imbed the video which Ray posted, but to no avail.  Please, if you have a moment, click on Ray’s link above, say hello to an amazing fellow and watch the video.  You’ll find it when you click on  Can You Imagine? on his blog post.

We are all here in this journey called life ~ we make connections with others through empathy and sympathy.  We can connect through our words, our actions, our inactions ~ even a simple meeting of the eyes can speak volumes.

We all have difficulties in our lives, some of us have hidden scars and some of our scars are outwardly displayed.  There are few who are unaffected by trials and tribulations in life.  It’s what we do with our experiences, how we reach out to help each other by connecting, that we make the life experience more fulfilling ~ deeper, richer and more meaningful.

So day as you go out about your day, perhaps you can take a step out of your comfort zone to simply smile at a stranger, to hold the door for someone, to thank someone who does it for you.  Many times we are too busy in our heads to really see those around us.  By reaching out to help, we help ourselves as well.

Please watch the video and let me know what you think…it’s quick, but powerful!

Big hugs to all of you from me!

Shine On!

  1. Thank you for sharing. That was a beautiful reminder of how we touch each other every day in the simplest ways, and all the opportunities to share light, love, hope, a smile hug or an eye hug. You are the best. Thanks for inviting us to put our hearts out there!

  2. I saw a girl in the supermarket wearing a “free hugs” t-shirt so I went over to her with open arms and a smile. We both laughed and we hugged. Her mom, on the other hand gave me a look that could kill! Isn’t it a shame that we can’t just let our suspicious guard down to enjoy each other even if we’re strangers?

    • I love that you shared your story! It sounds like something I would have done as well ~ yes, I agree that it would be a wonderful world if we could just enjoy eachother and not have to worry about stranger danger. Big hugs to you! I love your spirit! ♥

  3. The world is desperate for affection…a hug is such a simple gesture that has the power to change someone’s outlook. Loved this post… Hugs to you! 🙂

  4. What a touching video and so glad that you shared it. I can totally relate as many of us can. Below the video it said “Patient care is more than just healing — it’s building a connection that encompasses mind, body and soul.” That is so very true. Sending a Great Big Hug to you ♥

    • My pleasure ~ your post just invited to be reblogged ~ it was that great! I couldn’t post the video itself either. There was something strange going on, but then it all works out they way it should. I planned on spotlighting you anyway as I love your blog! ♥
