Far from home

Anyone else out there who is far from home and their loved ones? Well, I am. I cant wait to go home and for my LO's passport to be ready... I am so bored, lonely and homesick. I just wanna go home...

 

Anyone feels the same way and how do you cope?

Hello, 

I'm not currently living away from loved ones but I have in the past and it's so difficult. 

I think if it's a short term process and you're waiting for a passport approval then all you can do is keep busy. Try to fill up your time as much as you can with things that you enjoy doing. Get out and meet people if you can. Focus on the end goal and maybe start a countdown calendar where you cross off the days until you see your family, it might help having something visual. 

I hope you're reunited with your LO soon ❤️

Whereabouts are you now and how far away are you?   I had my kids passports done over summer and they were back within a week so hopefully you won't have too long to wait.

How about skype calls in the meantime?   

Look for the best things about where you are now, are there any things, places or people you'll be sorry to say goodbye to. You could make a list and tick one off every couple of days or week which will help put a positive thing on your countdown until you're home again.

Take Care
