“For one moment our lives met, our souls touched.” ~ Oscar Wilde
They’re free. We’ve all got them. And we all so very much want and need them from time to time.
They make us feel safe, and sometimes help to ‘reconnect’ our body with our mind.
They bring us closer in this one small space of interconnectedness—and, make our hearts smile, big.
They have the power to completely transform our sense of being, within just one single moment.
And no words, or often very few, are ever exchanged in order to confirm that one simple point—that in this space, you are loved.
And, look! Look at how much joy they bring!
So why not take one moment today, to reach out and really touch someone?
In doing so, you might just find that two arms, outstretched, is the shortest distance between two souls.
So, go ahead—go hug someone today.
Bonus: Super amazing hug video!
