You Control The Tools

Work on yourself, and watch social media transform from a potential pitfall into a bridge to reconnect with the people who matter most.

My wife and I were enjoying a fun trip, and as always, I documented our adventures on Instagram. Little did I know, a simple story would spark a reunion. A notification popped up – it was one of my friend from yoga teacher training! We hadn't spoken in months, but there she was, commenting on my Instagram story.

She happened to be a few blocks away. Within minutes, we were sharing a delicious ramen dinner, rekindling a friendship that might have otherwise been lost to time.
