Hug. It is something we have from birth, living and until death. We welcome it, we long for it, we encourage it, we need it and we give it away freely. It is experienced within families, within friendships, between partners and lovers, and at rare beautiful moments, with strangers. It is the most human form of affection. It is the most humane form of gesture with animals. It represents the endearing connection with material possessions. When all words fail us, a hug can be enough and even more. It is an inevitable act of compassion, nurturance, protection, assurance, healing, encouragement, sympathy, support and love. It is one deed that will always be positive. Be it the international day of hugs or just the daily grind, let the most universal form of love take over. Give a hug, receive a hug, while we still can.

Hugs for me is sweet, warm, loving, caring, heartfelt, gentle and comforting. A sacred embrace you share with the person you love. When you hug, nothing else matters, just the moment then and there, in pure bliss and stillness. They say hugs can take away all worries and replace it with tranquility, peace and love.

A scientific research shows that everybody needs 4 hugs a day to survive, 8 to maintain a strong emotional level, and 12 to become a better person! Hugs where invented to show love with saying absolutley nothing at all! HOW AMAZING IS THAT! One of the best feelings is when you hug someone tight and they hug you back even tighter. That's a love you feel with no regrets... Let's enjoy that getaway to the best place in the world, in the arms of someone who will not only hold you at your strongest, but hug tight and uplift you at the weakest point in your life!

I was going to enter this contest a few days ago but decided to wait. And then something happened, a close friend became ill. This is someone I consider to be a close friend even though we do not talk a lot. I actually do not talk to a lot of people on a daily basis, I am a more private person than most think. But when I let someone in, I let them in for life. Through all the tears and laughter... everything, I will forever consider you my friend. I sat here tonight and thought about how much I wanted to give them a hug. That's all. Just a hug. For some people it might be in sympathy, or even considered pity because of not feeling the urge to give one until right now when I know something bad has happened and I don't know when they will be okay, or if they will end up ill again. You are never certain of anything in life, no matter how prepared you are for anything. So to me, a hug is not just the act of wrapping your arms around someone and giving a squeeze. For me, a hug is everything. It is words you cannot say because you really don't know what to say. It is showing that you care, it is showing love. It is showing that this person means the world to you enough to be this close and never want to let go. A hug can make someone's day just from the contact after the day they have had. You would be amazed what a hug can mean to someone, to me. Like I said, I cannot find the words to properly describe the feeling a hug gives. Because you aren't suppose to. They speak for themselves. Lots of hugs and love to my dear friends on their journeys through this life.

Because I am an introvert, a hug is a very rare occasion. However, whenever I do get one, it's an overwhelming feeling of joy, comfort, and satisfaction. Whether it be hugging my relatives goodbye when I go back to college or hugging a patient at a hospital a hug is a symbol of caring.

"Don't cry," she whispered gently to me. Her thumb softly stroked back and forth along my cheekbone to wipe away a single tear, and as I nuzzled my cheek into her palm, a terrifying cold snap engulfed me at the thought of her going.

"I'm just gonna miss you..." My voice, now a rasped whisper broke mid sentence that showed the cracks in my strong front. "A lot," I managed to choke out, a small hint of my painful sorrow settling into my low tone while I reached for her.

She guided my hands to rest on her waist where shes always placed them, but before she could respond, a clear, crisp voice boomed loud through the intercom; and the words I had been dreading to hear filled the bustling airport— "This is the final boarding call for passengers on flight 372A to New York City. Please proceed to gate 3 immediately. The final checks are being completed-"

I watched as her expression fell, a look of solemn sadness crossed her usual optimistic features. The same eyes that's saved me with one 'I believe in you' look is now welling up with tears right in front of me, and I've never felt further away from her. It's heartbreaking.

I slowly moved my hands over her waist till they rested in the small of her back, and gently, my arms engulfed her into a warm, tender hug that instantly eased away the tension... While I could vaguely hear distant murmured goodbyes, my true focus never strayed from her. Because as her palms ran over my chest to link behind my neck, an overwhelming comfort washed over me. I love the way she hugs me.

"You know," she spoke while slowly releasing me from her hold, her arms still draped over my shoulders to keep me close. "Remember the first day we met?" Light hearted giggles escaped me at the memory.

"How can I forget, you were so cute standing in the middle of the busiest street in city, looking so ridiculous wearing that huge sign."
Among everyday people trying to cross the road without walking into anyone else, I saw a blonde, upbeat girl trying to save the world one hug at a time.

"Hey, don't insult the sign. Hugs are free, they feel good and they're memorable. It can brighten up someone's day!" She defended herself while pouting, and I couldn't resist her fake offended face even if I tried.

"I know baby, in all honesty who could resist a pretty girl wearing a sign that says 'free hugs!' No one. Certainly not me."

"Well, obviously not you," her voice had a clear mischievous teasing tone to it. She knows how much I like her, and she never lets me forget it. Yet, after a brief pause, she glanced down to the floor, and when she finally spoke again her voice tainted in sorrow. "That day, you looked like you really needed a hug. You looked so..."

"Sad." I finished for her. "After granddads funeral, I felt so lost, and I was just wondering around town not going anywhere in particular... And then I found you."

Curiosity glazed over her eyes and begged for me to continue.

"You really did cheer me up, I mean I know at the time you were a stranger but... It was seriously the highlight of my day. And because of that simple hug, here we are."

She gave me an impossibly charming smile while I kissed the thin ring reflecting the morning light upon her left hand, and her eyes, they lit up with an irreplaceable tenderness. "Here we are," she whispered low while glancing down to my lips.

We shared a soft, gentle kiss that melted away every inch of sadness in me.

My mind wondered back to the day I saw her... I was drowning in my own thoughts till a small, soft voice spoke up beside me, and I looked up to see the vision of a little blonde wearing the most bashful of smiles, arms wide open. I didn't question it, because when her arms embraced me in the most warmest, comforting of hugs, all my problems during that week fell away. And for the first time, I genuinely felt safe.

"And to think, it all started with a hug."

para mim o termo abaraço tem varios sentidos,a abaços que chegam em horas de desperos,horas de prazer e animaçoes , o termo abraço nao se refere somente a um gesto ou algo comum ,pois se trata de algo mais doque demostrar afeto e conprrençao de duas ou mais pessoas...em termos pode se abraçar por qualquer ocasiao...mas nao pode se abraçar por nada ...vejo abraços sempre como algo mais,como alguem que nao consegue diser oque realmente sente e se comunica ao abraçar ..seja forte ou fraco um abraço demostra mais sentimentos doque palavras ....
abraços podem salvar vidas ,mas ao mesmo tempo pode acabar com ela...

Vejo em abraços a mais forte e verdadeira forma de expressao que pude encontrar ate hoje ....

It's the touch that gives you comfort,
It's the touch that makes you feel,
It's something that no one else can ever steal.
It's the sweetest human contact for the body and the mind,
It's the connection where two bodies link and bind.

It's what we search for when we feel all alone,
It can be so meaningful, the emotion is deep to the bone.
It's what makes us realize that someone else is there,
It's the touch that says, "Just know I'll always care."
It can say hello, it can say goodbye,
It can leap out when you're happy, or make you want to cry.
It can say "I love you" or "I'm really glad we're friends,"
It can be the last spark in a story that ends.

All you need is another soul to make you feel this snug,
It's the connection in our life...
Everyone needs a hug.

A hug is that long, refreshing drink, after walking for miles upon miles in the scorching heat. In many ways, a hug is more intimate than a kiss. With hugging, our bodies come into close contact with one another. We can hear each other's heartbeat. Hugging offers comfort; a place to run to and cry when the complications of the world becomes too much to bear. A hug develops a bond between two people, and is a stepping stone for something more--it promotes trust, starts companionship, and sometimes, if not most of the time, leads to romance.

A good hug is when you can feel at home in another person's arms.

You hug someone to show you care, you hug someone to show you'll always be there. You hug someone when they're depressed, happy, or nervous. Look back on your memories, and when you hugged someone. To feel that comfort of a hug for just a second is enough to light a thousand fireworks in and around you. Your heart feels warm and you hug back, expressing your true gratitude. A hug shows love and fear. A hug has always been there at some point in your life.

You may have been sad, and a friend may have talked to you and told you everything would be alright, you hug, it's warm. It's welcoming, it's like waking up and looking outside to see it snowed. It's like when you go downstairs and see Mom making her special hot chocolate, drinking it gives you a warm fuzzy feeling of joy. You may have been so happy you started to cry, hugging the closest person to you, crying into their shoulder. You have someone to lean on, to hug, someone who cares, who's brave enough to show you they care. Hugs are there when you're in love, on a hill watching the sunset, scooting closer to that special someone, hugging them and telling them you love them.

No matter who you are and what you celebrate, hugs are a tradition.
Hugs are the one thing everyone does-together.
So, Happy National Hug Day.

The Power of a Hug

A hug.

It’s something that seems so simple and too many so free but it has the power to chance a person’s life in the matter of a few seconds. To be honest I don’t think many people have ever really thought about what a hug really means. For example, a hug can be just a greeting. A hello, how are you burst of affection moment of a friend or family member. Something that put a smile on your face and lets you know this person cares enough to step for a few moments into my personal space and give me a piece of them.

Now imagine someone who may not have had the best life in the world during a time where it seems like the world could get no crueler, that it has just turned its back on them with no regret. Imagine the sadness, the fear, helplessness, and the slipping of hope unsure if they would be able to go on. A random person walks up, steps into their personal space and simply gives them a hug. To imagine someone stepping into your personal space and wrapping their arms around you to come could be a terrifying thing. Questions of why are they doing this could come to mind but then something nothing short of magic happens, hope starts to be restored, the pain inside starts to heal, and a breath of life is given from one person to another. No longer is that person thinking the world has turned their back because with just a simple Hug there is at least 1 person that is not against them. One person that gives a damn to give them a piece of them and not wanting anything in return.

Whether in friendship, love, or just to give someone comfort a hug is a power thing. It has the power to change a person, heal a person, and make a person smile without even saying a word. There is a point or will be a point in all of our lives where we will need someone to do just that. A selfless act with so much meaning.

So from me to all of you HUGS and Happy National Hugging Day!
