Confession: I’m a hugger.
Hugging is awesome. It’s one of my favourite things. A good hug can completely transform my day, my week, my month. For real.
For me, there’s no such thing as a hug that goes on for too long. I prefer long hugs to short, weird, unfulfilling hugs… so if you’re gonna hug me, make sure you have at least 10-15 seconds to invest in it… or a couple of hours… I’m ok with that too.
My most favourite children’s book is called The Hug. It tells the story of a Hug who doesn’t think he’s important, so he tries to change who he is an become something else. After unsuccessful attempts at trying to be a bicycle tire, a doughnut, and a lollipop he feels small and unimportant until another Hug gives him a hug and he realizes that being a Hug is the most important thing of all because it makes you feel fantastic!
I won’t hug you unless I think that you want to be hugged… so let me know if you’re down for hugging, and we can hug it out.
