    I Am A Believer

    Often we underestimate the power of a hug and a smile has on us. Without ever realizing it. The power of a hug, a touch, a smile, a kind word, someone that listens and hears what you are saying are all things we crave as human beings. I try to hug as often as possible, kiss...

    The more "intense" of a hug,

    the better it would be!

    Is it really that hard to look up from your

    technology and say hi to someone back with a smile. Is it even just that hard to say hi to someone in general. Something as simple as a smile and saying hi can brighten someone's day. You never know so try it.

    Or Just a Smile

    Have you ever stopped to consider how strange it is just to see someone smile at you? I met a girl at a party awhile ago, we were introduced, we had a few drinks, we didn't talk much. We were...what's the word...acquaintances. I saw her in the lunchroom the other day, and when...

    I absolutely believe in the power of a hug

    and a smile with others. I see nothing wrong with a nice smile and a hug with family and friends. When smiling and hugging others you are really telling that person that you care about them very much.

    I am addicted to a hug from my family

    and friends. I do believe the power of a hug and a smile. I can see how others feel and how I feel when hugged and smiled at. I love it and do it often. Nothing better than giving and receiving a hug and a smile from others.

    I heard yesterday that you make a 1st

    impression on someone within the 0.33 of a second. One way to make a good impression is to smile. I realize we all have our fair share of problems but no matter what, I try to smile. First of all, I'm a positive person but more importantly, there's always someone you'll...

    Even just seeing a stranger

    and having them smile and wave can mean a lot. It can make you smile and before you know it, you feel better for a little while and you can remember that. It's small, but sometimes the small things can mean more. And, hugs can be nice too. Each person has their warmth and a...

    but I'm estranged from him. He was the only male I ever liked a hug and smile of reassurance from. Until recently!

    I really do believe in the power of a hug

    and a smile. Like when you're sad are just down, a simple hug or smile can just make your day, especially that one person who's hugs are just everything, just makes your whole day a lot better, sounds a bit cheesy but it's my type of cheese :D

    Nothing makes you feel better

    than a sincere hug when you need one. And nothing is better than a smiling face when you are feeling a bit down. Keep hugging and keep smiling. There can never be enough love in the world.

    A hug can make you and the other person feel

    more connection and loved. I love a genuine hug. The power of touch is underestimated. I try to smile quite a lot to make people feel welcome and for various reasons but its the little things sometimes that make the difference.

    I definitely believe in giving others a nice

    smile, hug, and words of encouragement. If I feel close to that person, male or female, I will kiss them too and let them kiss me back. This would include my immediate family members, relatives, friends, and strangers.

    It's not really the hugs

    or smiles that have the power... After all...a person can hug you and give you a smile and not care about you at all. Or they may even try to pretend to be good to you and go about proving how little they actually care about you...and how much they only care about themselves...
