The transition and distance forced me to become a better communicator. I found every time I had a spare minute I would call to check in. It became routine for me, and I found myself becoming more efficient with my time. Sometimes we discover things and get better on accident – I wish I could say I planned it all out and executed flawlessly, but sometimes it just happens!
The main challenge I see now when I get to visit is resisting falling into old patterns of communication. It’s a challenge to continue the good communication while integrating myself seamlessly back into my family’s life and schedule.
I’ve been able to grow tremendously in every aspect of my life – spiritually, physically and mentally. My eating habits have improved with cooking every day and I’ve started my own independent supplement business.
I’m looking forward to the day my family joins me, but until then I will continue improving in every aspect of my life that I can. My goal with this post is to help others by sharing my experiences as so many people have helped me.
