If you know me or by chance have read my previous posts, you know that I am not a big fan of hugs and kisses.  Not that I dislike them, but more of a awkwardness on my part due to lack of practice.

But no more holding backs.  You are reading from a man with a  changed heart.  Inspired by Dr. Leo Buscaglia, Speaking of Love,  I am going to practice hugs and kisses more as ways of expressing my feelings.  A genuine, from the heart expression.

So watch out world, I am not going to worry about political correctness or if I am doing it right.  As Dr. Leo said, “Don’t brood. Get on with living and loving. You don’t have forever.”

Love, how do you show it?

    I loved the heading, and laughed as well. oxoxo — in my family of origin, we always sign our cards with our name and xoxox, which is kisses and hugs. Love can be shown in many ways. But for this post since about hugs, I read someplace years ago that people need 8 hugs a day. I have been a hugger and kisser all my life — family of origin conditioning. I read that 8 hugs actually an release tension. I have done this with my girls — when they are ranting (venting) I start giving them 8 hugs, and I do it in succession, which I don’t think was meant by what I read. But it has become a comical (translation – ice breaking) way of getting them out of their “state” and into something different. By the 8th hug, they actually stay longer in the hug, it becomes more “union” like and emotional (unspoken) words are expressed. BTW I am a firm believer that there is no wrong way to hug! So go ahead and unleash yourself on the world, my friend. Believe me when I say, it can use more huggers!
