THE REUNION HAS GONE DOWN GUYS.
I thought I would pop a blood vessel in excitement waiting in the airport to pick up my boyfriend after seven months apart while he was in Canada, but he eventually came through the crazy Australian customs and everything was awesome in my world again.
Seven months apart = a lot of goopy-lovey-eye making at each other occurs while the taxi driver tries not to throw up on the way home from the airport.
Something I have realised these last seven months: being present while waiting for something is weird. How to focus on the present moment when every atom of my being is so very excited for something several months in the future? How to be happy and satisfied while still blatantly waiting for something that is such a big deal to me?
This is how:

Realising this and knowing that this was a special stage in my life and trying to appreciate every moment of that definitely helped. I have had some of the best times of my life with my friends in Sydney and my lifestyle with Bestie has pretty much been an eternal girly sleepover party. Being present throughout my days helped me appreciate the awesomeness of my life here in Sydney and also somehow made time fly by.
Having said that, some days it has been close to impossible to not dream impatiently about the day when Curtis will finally turn up and we will recommence with our adventure of a relationship. Trying my best to be patient with a good attitude on those days was not only better for my own mood, but also for those around me. Full disclosure- Bestie still listened to a fair bit of whining about missing Curtis as well as an embarrassing level of happiness whenever I got a message from him.

In the last few days before he arrived I feel like being present and mindful simultaneously increased and went straight out the window for me – my heart jumped straight into three days ahead when Curtis would arrive, and at the same time every single minute felt strangely intense.
Anyhooo, goodbye long distance, it’s been real. Hello to summer in love in Sydney.
Tell me your long distance love story! Details people! Love me some beautiful airport reunions a whole lot 🙂
Longest you have been away from your significant other? – Seven months just now… more than enough 🙂
Has anyone read any of Eckhart Tolle’s stuff? I LOVE him, I’m currently reading A New Earth: Awakening to your Life’s Purpose. Good times.
