Whoo hoo, it’s Friday! Does that mean it’s the last day of work for me this week? Not really, but I do far less work on the weekend, and I still get extra happy on Friday. It brings good vibes. I think it’s why I chose Friday as my random acts of kindness movement day. It’s my first Friday doing #randomactsofkindness. Last week I posted that I was starting it. I’m hoping that some of you will join me, even if you don’t post or talk about it. I’m encouraged that we can make this world slightly nicer one day at a time. Yes, I’m an eternal optimist!
Today I reached out to someone I lost touch with a few years ago to tell her I missed her. I hope it will put a smile on her face even if she doesn’t respond. I have to thank social media for making it easier to reconnect with people, no matter where in the world they moved.
It isn’t great when you lose touch with people because it’s so easy to text “Hi, how’s it going?” once in a while. But it does happen; people move away, lifestyles change, or with some people it happens organically. It happened to me and my great friend G. She reminded me of it the other day. We had both moved far away and a few years went by. One day out of the blue I looked her up and left her a message to see if she remembered me. G said she was so happy that she burst into tears when she heard my voice. We’ll never let that amount of time go by again.
I’ll always remember the happiness G said she felt when she heard my voice. Now I know that it’s never too late to rekindle some friendships. It sparked me to contact my old friend this morning. As I mentioned, if nothing else happens, I hope it puts a smile on her face that someone wanted to reach out after time passed.
I hope you have a beautiful day! And if you decide to do a random act of kindness of your own, whatever you choose to do, I hope it puts a smile on their face.
