of separation and distance..
“Dusk is just an illusion because the sun is either above the horizon or below it. And that means that day and night are linked in a way that few things are there cannot be one without the other yet they cannot exist at the same time. How would it feel I remember wondering to be always together yet forever apart?” ― Nicholas Sparks
Our one-month vacation has already ended. It’s funny how we’ve planned and prepared for this trip for almost two years and it ended in just a snap of fingers. One month is too less and too short! Huhu. I wish we could stay longer..
In fact, I’m still suffering from a major sepanx and yet all I can only do is to check our pictures from this trip. The thought of my little brother bursting into tears when we finally said goodbye still lingers. It pains me to live out here, away from my first family but well, life has been all about choosing and sadly, I choose to be apart from them. It may sound cruel because I could have chosen to stay with them but somehow, it’s been the rightest thing that I have ever done. I like the idea of being missed. Who wouldn’t? Not to mention, being temporarily away from them gives my family the opportunity to stand on their own. Otherwise, I’d be their living shadow with all the decisions they make because I tend to be a great dictator in the family, the Ms. Know It All. So –– it’s not that bad that I chose to live 6000+ miles away from them. It’s for their own goodness and mine, too.
But, I am still missing them and will always do. 🙁
Outfit of the day
I got this women chiffon maxi dress from TOSAVE. It arrived a few hours before we left for PH and gladly, it’s perfect for the occasion because it involved lounging by the beach. Don’t judge the way I picked these trousers to match with this women boho long dress because I only packed a few summer clothes during the trip (and I just realised it later when we’re already there.) It could have been perfect with a pair of denim shorts but well, my sister has worn the only denim shorts that I brought with me so I was left with nothing but this one.
