Today I ran into someone who used to report to me at work. As part of an outtasking agreement, he moved to the services company. I had not seen him in almost 2 years.

When we saw each other he asked if we could get together for a coffee. I suggested that we take the train home together as we are on the same line. I was looking forward to reconnecting with him.

We managed to connect and catch up on the hour train ride home. What I realised over the time and after was that even after the time away from people we’ve come to know, it is good to reconnect with one another.

There was a lot of talk of work, but more importantly, we talked personally about our lives and how things were going. I appreciate the time we had and while we were going our separate ways, it was well worth reconnecting.
