Tightening Family Bonds

One of the most amazing blessings I will be forever thankful is my family. From birth until now where I am entering the serious life of adulthood, they have always been with me. My family has sacrificed and supported me in my quest to success and self-realization.

Together, we will thrive

Last month I left the country to search for opportunities with greater monetary rewards. Living away from them was never part of my option until I feel the need to do so not only for me but for my family. And so, I travelled and work overseas. Distance has been overwhelming from the start but eventually I and the rest of the family conquered it.

I thought distance can devastate us but I was wrong. Our family bond becomes stronger as we continue to communicate with each other. Technology has a way of bring people together. Though social networking chats, Skype, online calling, e-mails, and even long distance calls, we, as a family, thrive to survive the loneliness and the missing process.

Time difference was also a major challenge since we are living in reverse. When I am working at daylight, they are sleeping at the other side of the world. Eventually, we compromised on weekends and enjoyed our video chats with the rest of the family members online.

Tightening family bonds is a challenge but a call we all had to make to keep our family together. It takes more than the communication and the effort but as well as the commitment to stay connected no matter what, amidst our busy schedules and incompatible timelines.

I am just blessed that my family is with me in every step of my way; and I will always be with them. Always.
