Recently I added Facebook to my social networking channels to see who else I could connect with before the dreaded high school reunion.
It has been amazing the number of classmates that I lost touch with or people, who were once critical in my every day, that I had not spoken to in years, were happy to see my face. Which begs two questions, how important were they, and why did I loose touch?
We loose touch for the simple reasons that we move on, we have changes in our lives, or ‘those people” no longer fit in our plans. Do we simply close the door and move on, or do you find that many years later, “those people” still have the same view of you? if their view is still the same, then maybe what we were moving on from wasn’t “those poeple” but ourselves.
This month, I challenge you to reconnect with something you lost touch with, whether it be an old hobby, and old friend, or an old classmate. Because, in the end, what really matters is what you did when you are here, and not neccessarily what you did when you were there.
Connect today, and make a difference in your tommorrow.
