Old friendships are rekindled through social media. A friend from my high school days recently contacted me through Facebook. It is so nice to catch up with each other, and with just a few clicks, we are both able to go through each others albums and see each others families. We live thousands of miles away, so its not as easy as hopping in a car and going for a short drive to visit with each other. But it is nice to use technology to be able to catch up with each other and see what other people are doing. It is so important that as we grow and move on to different chapters of our lives, our circle of friends grow with us. But just as important, is holding on to those good friends that have touched your life along the way.
Sure, we all get busy with our lives, our families, our jobs and new friends. But its important that every now and then, we slow ourselves down. Take a breather to reflect on our past, remember happy memories. And reconnect with those that were important to you. One caution, I feel the need to mention to everyone. I am not talking about reconnecting with your high school boyfriend or anything of that sort. That could lead into trouble. I am talking about maybe your bff from high school or your college dorm room mate.
