The prompt from sunday Scribblings this week is Yes.
In the past, I've said yes too often. It was easier to say yes than to voice my opinions. After years of doing the right thing, doing what was expected of me and going along with others wishes to please them, I decided it was time to speak up. It was hard to do and I noticed that some people around me weren't supportive, thought my ideas were silly and didn't like the new me. It took me a while to realise that in order to be the person I wanted to be, I would have to make huge changes in my life.
I have gone ahead and made many of those changes over the past four months. I have left my marriage, moved house and started a new relationship. I intend to make many more changes and now have the support to do so.
It's a wonderful feeling to wake up in the morning saying yes to the day rather than hiding under the covers and saying no to life.
