Smile from a friend

Last night I had dinner with a friend whom I haven't seen in a while. We've been friends for about 7 years, which actually seems to be rather a short time compared to the long time friendships I have formed over my past 27 years of life. She is one of those individuals that inspires me every time I see her. It's like I received a parcel of energy. She radiates with such a warm energy that comes straight out of her heart. We share a love of travel, wine and food, and surfing, amongst many other things. It was so inspiring to share our ideas and dreams together, and even though I haven't seen her for months, we connected with such ease.

It's easy to lose touch with each other and ourselves in our hectic lives. Even though we are always just a click or a text or a poke away, somehow this all makes me feel more disconnected somehow. We make up excuses but there really isn't any. Reaching out is easier than you think, and someone out there is probably thinking just the same thing you are.
