A Sunday Morning Surprise

An outdoor trip into the wild

Besides all the professional discussions on the social media platform LinkedIn, I had a very emotional experience this morning:

After more than 13 years, the network brought me back together with a friend from previous days.

To be honest, I never would have expected that. This reunion is all the more beautiful.

We experienced a lot together back then… among other things, we survived the 2004 tsunami in the Indian Ocean.

The way life is, over the years we have unfortunately lost sight of each other for professional and family reasons.

But the experience of our common history has always motivated me over the years — even in difficult times to get up again and again, and even to start something new.

We all know that business and life are not just about going up. In addition to many moments of success and happiness, we are always faced with challenges.

In such situations, it is often not so easy to see the light at the end of the tunnel immediately. It is still worthwhile to continue the path in the dark with confidence.

Thank you so much, my dear friend, for taking the courage and the initiative to write to me on LinkedIn this morning.

That makes this Sunday a very special day to me.

I wish you an amazing Sunday too!
