I m trying to filter out the worry, the anxiety, the missingness.
So that I can focus on the positives.
Today I am taking my baby (aged 22) to Heathrow so that she can fly to Mexico and spend 2months+ travelling around the Central and North America with her friend.
She has, of course, been away before – she spent the last 3 years at university and before that she spent 2 weeks in Malawi doing charity work – I am, of course, used to missing her.
This is a long way and a long(ish) time.
Filter out the worry and focus on the positives – great experiences, great adventure, opportunity of a life time – the positives.
