Reestablishing old connections

Connections are important. Without connections we couldn’t get from A to B, couldn’t use the phone, television, anything really. This weekend I spent time with my mother (love you mom!) at her 30-year High School Reunion in New York City. By the way, I’ve been living in New York City for the past two weeks and am working at Saatchi & Saatchi as an Account Management Intern. But that’s not the point.

 Anyways, this period of reconciliation between people who haven’t seen each other in years was an interesting event to watch. And it brings me to stress the importance of connections between people.

In younger years people are forced to believe and identify themselves through exclusive social groups/cliques, which in many cases deter these people from making connections with others. As we grow more mature, it is essential to understand the importance of breaking these once mighty barriers between stereotypes and embrace and celebrate people for their differences.

I received a phone call yesterday,  the first of its kind. A person who I was acquianted with in high school but not particularly close to, called me just to say hello. At first it was a little strange, but then I realized why she had made the call.

 For this reason I believe it is important to take the time now and try to reestablish lost connections with people who you wouldn’t have thought of otherwise. A personal touch would be best (none of this Facebook messaging or poking), to show that you are sincerely trying to reestablish the connection. You will be surprised to find the wealth of knowledge every single person in the world holds within.
