Hug More Interview - Vesna Simović
Few months ago, roaming the cyber space, we came across this wonderful woman. Her mastery is translating impressions into the words. She does that with abundance of skill and grace. She won us with this sentence - Ones greatness can only be measured with ones ability to hug another with the soul. She says she is a passenger through life, life observer and a teacher. She is a creator of a concept Be Wonderful. She is also a hugger of course, and her name is Vesna.
WHY DO YOU LIKE HUGS? WHAT DO THEY MEAN TO YOU?
A hug is a token of accepting yourself in others and others in you. It connects our inner world to the world around us and makes them both unique. And larger. With hugs we grow.
WITH WHOM DO YOU HUG THE MOST? WHO S YOUR FAVOURITE HUGGING PARTNER?
Every day I hug a part of me, the one I had neglected or forgotten. Every day I hug my Teacher of Joy – my son, and I hug my husband every single day. These are the hugs prevailing in my life.
IS THERE A ONE PARTICULAR HUG THAT YOU WOULD POINT OUT AS YOUR FAVORITE? ANY HUG SO FAR THAT STICKS OUT?
When a soul touches another, it is much stronger than a hug. It happens when souls recognize each other and embrace but people do not even touch.
IS THERE SOMEONE YOU OWE A HUG? SOMEONE YOU SHOULD HAVE HUGGED OR YOU WANTED TO HUG, SOMEONE WHO DESERVED A HUG BUT FOR SOME REASON YOU STILL HAVEN´T?
To every teacher whose words touched me. To everyone who woke me with a word or a deed, though I did not recognize them as precious at that moment but much later when I felt their purpose.
IF YOU COULD PICK ANYONE, WHO WOULD YOU HUG? DEAD OR ALIVE, FICTIONAL OR REAL?
My dad who passed away. I know he is there - in my heart and I miss that embrace of daddy´s princess and Dad the Knight with the same strength that used to give me wings.
AND LASTLY, GIVE US ONE DAMN GOOD REASON WHY WE SHOULD ALL HUG MORE
We spend our lives ignoring parts of ourselves and looking for them in people around us. Only when we embrace all the unfulfilled parts of our souls shall we fulfill our purpose and find what we were searching for. That is the reason hugs are important. They are not so much the acceptance of others as they are the acceptance of us by ourselves. That makes a complete and endless circle filled with love.
