Quick catch-ups

Today afternoon, I and my girlfriend met up with a good friend of ours after a long time together.

We had lunch together and then chatted for what seemed like 5 mins but was actually 3 or 4 hours. In short, it was an afternoon well spent.

This got me to thinking that friends are important. No matter how busy you're, if you are getting a chance to catch-up with an old friend, you should definitely meet them.

We get so involved in our busy lives that we often miss these little joys in life.

Everyone's busy with their own life.

When that good friend of yours asks to meet you, you should clear up your schedule and have that meeting. It's guaranteed to make you happy hanging out with them. Remember, they're making time for you too.

Don't be too busy to miss out on life.

Work isn't the only recipe for a satisfied life. Work and play go hand in hand.

Got a call from an old friend for a quick meeting? Take it. Savour the moment. It'll be worth your time.
