When life gives you lemons take the seeds and plant a orchard... so that everyone may partake of the fruit time has born.
Everyone keeps asking me how I’m doing? and up until now I have to be honest I didn’t feel much. I was nervous of course but I was definitely not sad that my better half was leaving for two years. I was excited for him to begin his mission and for a lack of better wording… get it over with already. Since we began dating a year and two months ago I knew this day would eventually come. We discussed it daily, we planned out things and mapped out our lives so that when it happened it just seemed right. I expected it and I had time to cope with it slowly so it wasn’t a huge shock at all. I’m sure that with time maybe the loneliness will get to me and I’ll be at the point where I’m living letter to letter. In the meantime though I’ll allow this to make us closer as opposed to letting this make me feel farther from him, though that may change tomorrow.
