We all know waiting is hard. If patience is a virtue, then I’m far from nearing sainthood.
I’ve lived on a separate continent, in a different hemisphere, 7,000 miles and 15 time zones away from my One and Only for just shy of two and a half years now. I’ve had a great time living abroad and doing what I love, but I’m ready to be back with my SO for good this time.
In just over three months I’ll be reunited with my SO who is planning a proposal for sometime soon after I return. We’ve been together for just over four years and I’ve summoned every shred of strength I could muster to be patient and understand that it hasn’t been the right time.
But the right time is close.
And as much as I’ve tried not to think about it, as dwelling on it makes me a little sad that we’re not in a closer proximity, I’ve officially decided it’s close enough to be excited about, not sad.
But it’s hard to be excited with my sister and friends from home since they’re so far away. My current friends in my area don’t want to always hear from the girl who’s pining for a mysterious man they’re never met (and probably doubt exists).
So I’ve come here. To announce my wait. My excitement. To be excited for fellow Waiting Bees. And to work on my patience.
Maybe I’m saintlier than I think.
Who’s with me?
