Reconnect with an old friend. With the technology these days, facebook, twitter, cell phones, e-mail, it is easy to do. Think of someone that you have grown apart from, and that you would like to be back in touch with. Take a few minutes and send a thought felt facebook message or e-mail, or even muster up the courage to give that person a phone call. Maybe it is your best friend from middle school, or your lab partner in chemistry, or that friend that you used to go camping with. Whoever it is, reach out and see how they are doing, let them know what you are up to, and that you miss having them in your life. Not only will this totally make someone's day, you will feel good for making the effort. Maybe they will become a great pen pal, or you'll arrange to see each other more. Or maybe you will message a few times, reminiscence, and drift apart again. Either way, it is definitely worth a little time.
Here is a picture of me with one of my childhood best friends and neighbors. We got back into contact last year and she ended up visiting me in Hong Kong. We had a blast, and are still in contact. Since it is almost Halloween this seemed like an appropriate picture.

So take a little time and reconnect with an old friend. You'll be happy you did. And that's your daily good thing!
