The wait…


The worst part of the process is, hands down, the uncertainty of the visa approval. Even though there is no reason why the visa would not be approved, the wait for the final answer is nerve wrecking. It makes you check your email constantly, even though you know that there is a huge time difference between Australia and the UK. Every night we go to sleep hoping that in the morning we’ll have our answer and every morning we feel disappointment by the lack of news.

Radio silence…

Realistically, we know that no news is good news but still we can’t help the anticipation, the anxiety and the stress build up with each passing day. All our plans are in stand-by: in the one hand we do not want to take on anymore commitments here as it isn’t worth our while if we’re to move in two months time, on the other hand we cannot start organising the move as we don’t have a date and the 100% guarantee that we’ll be moving soon…

I can’t help but feeling that I am living in two dimensions and two places. I can’t concentrate on the here and now and my day-to-day routines are done robotically without too much attention being paid to my surroundings. However, I can’t live there, nor physically, nor in my plans which are simply put on hold (hopefully not for much longer now…). As a result, I live constantly in my head: devising plans, having ideas, deciding what I should take or what I should leave behind, thinking of what to give to whom as a part of the moments we’ve shared…

Patience is definitely a virtue that I need t work on and so this presents itself as the greatest opportunity of my life thus far 😉 I will now go an d meditate for a while, trying to avoid thinking about the move, the visa and all that it will entail…
