Hey look ma, another Wednesday Post-it, and I have yet to be kicked in the teeth….ooof
Yes, another hump-day and another lesson to be learned.
So this past week I found myself trying to reconnect with a few folk that I seem to have lost contact with. In this busy world of the interwebs, and social media, we connect with so many more people than a human has time for anymore. We keep our inner circles informed on out daily activities, and seem to drop the others. They fall into that “Friends of Facebook” category. They have some kind of connection to you, but just not a real active one. We all have these friends. They may have been some tight High School buddies, or Fandom buddies, or that one time in Cancun….well, maybe not that one. We are connected to so many people it is crazy. Every day we continue to grow that circle and expand our knowledge of association. As my friend,-SpicyDemon- put it : “Think of an online friend you haven't contacted in more than a few years for whatever the reason (you can go even farther back if you'd like) if you don't have their email or it's been changed, than track them down somehow! When or if you do, give them a friendly hello!” She even put up a challenge to share your story and she may even reward you. Is that AWESOME or what? But it’s true. It’s not a bad idea to reconnect with someone. It is life. We just have the ability to reconnect with them more than ever. The ability to say hi, tell a “remember when” story and smile. Then continue your day better then you started it. A Win -
Win for everyone.
So fire up that friends list, pull out that yearbook, or even you old Gundam and or D&D fandom. Track down an old friend. If they live or work near you, have a cup of coffee with them. Granted, if you want to meet someone new, I’ll be down at a Shari’s. A slice of pie is even on me.
