    I feel this same issue! My husband and I actually have lost touch with friends because life happens, and work gets in the way, and there are errands to run, and (insert here). It is always nice to catch up with friends but they seem to be in the same situation; always busy. I feel like we’re at a point where we have to make new friends who can eventually be old friends. The only thing is…we do both work full time jobs, my husband has returned to school part time,and I am contemplating returning to school as well. How does one, go about making “new friends” when you’ve reached your early 30s? It would be nice to have other couples to spend time with but I have no idea how to go about doing this?

    I think it is very important to stay connected with old friends because these people you still care about but sometimes you just get busy! We always have to remember to just slow down a bit and just make time because life is soo short and before you know those friends may not be there for you to reconnect with so I always try to connect with each one of my close friends at some point and I also try to see them where I can as well.

    ”Once you create it You need to share it ” , Matt u had gave me an inspiration moment in that vedio not for connecting with old friends but more for focusing in creating my life first tthen on shareing it with my friends later ofcourse with being in touch with them once in awhile but not waisting all the time in sharing and connecting to people so my self sentence inspired by you is * After you create it you need to share it *
    Thank you Mister Inspiration

    Thank-you for the heartfelt video. I agree with what you say.

    There seems to be well in the last 4/5 blog posts a new even more chilled and happy energy about you , coming accross in your posts/ video which is inspiring – perhaps it’s a sign of emotional maturity. I like it that you provide ways to make life generally more fulfilling as opposed to just on relationships – important though they are. Stay groovy.

    Old friends are the people, who will remind us of childhood when we are 80.

    I love the Hitchens reference. One of my favorite writers of all time. He was one of a kind. I started following you and Stephen only 2 weeks ago, after I came across with your “I haven’t met any nice person.” video on youtube. You spoke my mind in that video. I follow you for that kind of general wisdom talk rather than tips for how to get the guy. Like I said in another post the other day, I do get the guy, no problem. They should watch how to get the woman videos to get me. hehehe! ;-) But anyways, getting back to the subject, there are a lot of fake speakers in the USA. You speak from the heart and you mean every word you say which is very inspirational. You want to share every positive feeling you have with your audience, because you want to move the society forward. I can see it everytime you talk. I hope to meet you guys someday in person when you guys visit Chicago. Chicago is way better than LA. :) Have a great weekend! xxx

    I just did and feel more happy :)

    I hope you’re now going to ring your friend, skip on up and over and visit, or give him a ticket to come visit you, for a few weeks.

    It’s very true, and a reality of balancing the rubbish events from the reality.

    You are like a mind reader. I re-connected yesterday with a friend it’s been many years since I’ve seen. I wasn’t sure and then I thought about what you said just now. What if I or we died or we were ill, would I regret it. We’ll yes, because it’s the best thing I’ve done in a long while. You are so right Matthew, it’s profound and emotionally wonderful. Life as you say sometimes moves in different directions, especially when we are young and ambitious, but no-one wants to live with regrets. x

  13. Lorine says:

    Wow :)
    Thanks :)
    Reconnecting now with old friends :)

  14. D says:

    Thank you Matt, for this video. You’re very emotional in it. I have less contact now with some of my friends, cause they’re married with children. I’m still single. I know there’s no reason to not call them once in a while or meet up with them every so often. Sometimes I feel that because they have children that it creates a distance because I can’t see them as much as I used to. Still I suppose you have to embrace change & not let it get in the way of old friendships.

    Yay! I love this:)
