Hug Thy Neighbor
If I allowed 1 million hugs to overwhelm me, then I wouldn't continue on. So what do I do when the 'how is this going to happen' fear rises up within me? I go back to my why. I know that when people feel seen and know that they matter, they are less likely to hurt themselves or others.
On the way out of my building today, one of the property management staff noticed my shirt and said she liked it. I asked if she wanted a hug and she said yes. I then offered one to the property manager and he accepted as well. These two and others oversee a large condo complex and do so with kindness. I've lived here four years now and anytime I've needed them...there they are.
As you go about your day, look around and appreciate it. Look at the people in it and offer a smile, a kind word, or a hug and be part of the change we all seek in this world... a world filled with LOVE, kindness, compassion, and hugs.
Share a hug today... it might just be you that needs it most.
