Do it! I double dare you..

A handshake is the act of grasping and shaking a person's hand, as when being introduced or agreeing on a deal. I am not a fan of the handshaking concept. Number one, I have a very awkard handshake. I used to practice before going places in relation to work. I rather give a high five. When you analyze it, it really is strange! You're locking hands and it's too formal, almost fake. I don't like it. Very rarely will I shake a hand.

So what am I? I'm a hugger, big time! I love hugs. That's pretty much my reaction after we are introduced. Hugging is so meaningful to me. It's saying through a gesture that you are special, you are important, you are needed.. I appreciate you being here right now.. I appreciated you being there before.. I'm glad you are alive.. and most of all it's saying thank you, I love you. I know a lot of people hug when they're leaving one another. What I just described though, they all fit into that category. You're not just saying goodbye but you mean all of those things as well.

I dare you tomorrow, the day after and/or all week to hug. If you're not a huggy feely kind of person.. well I think it's time to get over it! ;)  If you have children raise them to hug and love. The worst thing is for people to feel uncomfortable hugging, it shouldn't be that way. It's such a meaningful gesture. I think it brings peace to the world and those around us. It makes us feel loved. You will not believe what one hug can do. Someone having a bad day, just ask do you need a hug? I know me, I'm the first to jump up and say 'yes.. I do!".

It's late, go hug your family, your dog, cat, etc... I hope that a chain reaction comes of this :)

Love you all
