We drove to Boise yesterday.
We haven’t seen Melissa for almost three months. Way too long.
She and I ran towards one another for the perfect hug.
What makes a hug perfect?
While I was searching for the perfect image to use in this post, I came across an article entitled The Eightfold Path to a Truly Great Hug by Bryan Reeves that perfectly explained how to hug, step by step.
Here are the eight steps:
- Hug like you mean it.
- Be willing to be vulnerable. Open your arms.
- Close your eyes.
- Breathe into the embrace.
- Lean into the embrace.
- Squeeze but don’t suffocate.
- Just be with the person you’re embracing.
- Let go. Smile. Breathe.
Misslissa and I did everything right except we added something all the way through number three and number eight.
