This is a really short episode, but I thought it was important. I have recorded this during one of my "down" days. Long distance is not always going to be easy… and it is alright to admit that. Our situation is a bit unique, since Shannon is restricted in where he can go and what he can do in Afghanistan. Some days we cannot even talk, or it is very limited because of network or lack thereof. Most days I am busy and so is he and we get by, but I thought it was important to share that some days will be hard, and you just have to pull out your mission statement and refocus on your long term goals together, and keep moving. Remember, as long as you’re headed in the same direction, everything will be alright.
