It’s never too late to reconnect

conversation

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.

NYC with Kim
My friend Kim came to visit me in New York last year while I was there for a while and it’s hard to express how much that meant.

I hope you have a beautiful day and weekend!

    1. Thanks so much Maha! It is a wonderful feeling. And thank you very much! I keep debating dying my hair black again…it’s just so hard to do another color afterwards…but I still might. it’s time for a change soon 🙂 Have a wonderful day 🙂

  1. That’s such a good feeling. I go back to my home country once in a year and it feels great to meet my old friends. Even though we don’t stay in contact during the whole year, whenever I go back, we always get together!
