The Bittersweet Step to Betterness

I distinctly remember going through step 1, which was a 2 week separation from Babe. It seemed so long ago that we are now on Step 2 of 7. This may probably be the saddest and longest, but is also the second most important step of all in achieving our goals.

I am a “list” person. I like seeing things written – timelines, short and long term goals, even those pesky “payables” and grocery lists as it let me see things in perspective. It reminds me of what really matters, what needs to be prioritized, and the progress we are making so far. This somehow rubbed off Babe and I am sometimes amused with his love and hate relationship with it (lol!).

So as far as our list goes, as mentioned, we are on step 2. This is the saddest because we have never been apart each other aside from his 2 week stint before. We both know that it won’t be THAT lonely from where he will be working and thank goodness for technology for making communication and video calls possible, still, nothing beats being able to hug and kiss him, having him near. Konting tiis na lang talaga.

Today, I installed Skype. For those who do not know, Skype is an application which allows you to do video calls, send messages, and voice calls by use of an Internet connection. If you have enough credits, you may do a regular calls. Since we both have internet connection, we were able to talk and see each other at the same time.

Babe gave me a tour of his temporary home- his room, the lounge, kitchen, and everything else. This way, I am able to place an image with his stories even though we are not together physically. The call lessened my anxiety and loneliness. It even made me more determined and patient with our plans in the future. For now, Geoff and I are staying put until the time is right for us to follow and eventually move. Let me leave this image on this page. It is said that the more you think, vocalize, put into writing whatever it is that you aim in the future, the universe will do it’s best to align itself with what you desire.
