Free Hugs!

What did you do today? I gave out free hugs! To strangers! On my way home, I ran into two lovely ladies giving out free hugs at a crazy busy intersection. I decided to join them, and give out hugs during rush hour. Everyone was running to catch their bus, but some people stopped for a free hug. Today was a perfect day for it, because  people need brightness in their day at this time of the year! They gave me the sign that I was using, and I definitely plan on going back to give out more hugs.

It really gave me a chance to think about how rushed we are, especially in cities. How rushed we are to get home, to sit and unwind from the day, only to start it all over again. How rushed we are to work, work, work and push for a career until we lose sight of what is really, truly important. Things like friendship, family, walks without a purpose, good food and hugs. We need to take the time to appreciate what we have right now. 

What can you do to appreciate the moment?
