If everything in life was easy we’d have nothing to prove. You have to fight for what you want. You have to want to make it work.
Nobody said this was going to be easy; walking around missing half your heart.
It’s not just the little amount of time that he’s been gone but knowing this will be my life for the next several years. Saying goodbyes then awaiting the homecomings.
I count down another day closer to his arrival but know I’ll have to do this all over again soon. What’s going to fill my day with joy when it’s just me? I’m not used to this empty feeling.
But, know you are loved by the one that is away.
But, know you are loved by your family.
But, know you are loved by your friends that take you in.
You are strong and can do hard things. Strength isn’t always about the physical but about the mental games we play in our minds. Sometimes just needing to get out of your own head to see clearly.
