Free Hugs

In NYC last week, I ran into a group holding “Free Hugs” signs and decided why not? After a genuinely great hug, the guy asked me, “Do you want to hold a sign?” 

My immediate reaction was ‘No’ with an excuse of where else I needed to rush off to. But, I stopped myself. What did I really have to do right now? I grabbed the sign and gave away free hugs for 15-minutes. It was AWESOME, putting a smile on my face for the rest of the night. Best 15-minutes I spent all week. 

So, this week, don’t default to ‘No.’ What do you need to say ‘Yes’ to? 

Oh, and give away a few free hugs. The world needs it.
