Take the Opportunity: Call Someone You haven’t Spoken to in a While

All days are nights to see till I see thee,
And nights bright days when dreams do show thee to me. – by William Shakespeare, “Sonnet XLIII”

Maybe it’s an old friend or acquaintance. Maybe a family member or a previous neighbour. If they spring to mind as you ponder this then take that as a sign that maybe it’s a good time to reconnect.
 
This could also become a healing process if there was a reason for your loss of contact. Be the one that makes the effort to talk again. You might find you missed them more than you realised and vice versa.
 
Wounds can heal, trespasses can be forgiven, friendships can be rekindled. Simply reaching out in this way could make a real change for you or the person you call or both.
