Read: The 10 Essential Hugs of Life, by Roy Spence
-- In the 10 Essential Hugs of Life, Roy Spence shares the inspiring lessons he learned from practicing what his dad taught him -- anyone worth meeting is worth hugging -- with the hope, others will take up the call to put a little more joy in the lives of those we touch, including our own. We simply need to hug ourselves first, our friends and family, our fears and failures, our firsts, our futures, and our finals. When we embrace all of the people and events that make us who we are, we discover deep wells of love.
