One of the major premises of the latest book I’m engrossed in is the concept of “Say Yes to Life”.
Saying yes means letting go of resistance and letting in the possibilities that our universe offers in new ways of seeing the world…Saying no means to block, to fight, to resist opportunities for growth and challenge.
~ Susan Jeffers, Ph.D I decided to take a risk, a huge risk for me, and say Yes to Life.
Husband #2 stated he would like to see me, to meet halfway between us, to have some time together. I don’t know his thoughts or motives…to me, it sounded like a booty call, a way to have his cake and eat it too, a way to hit me over the head one more time with how terrible I am. Just one more chance for him to convince me that I am the problem and by extension our marriage is a toxic waste dump.
Those are my preconceived notions, my attempt to foretell the future based on past behaviors.
Instead of relying on my thoughts of what probably will be, I’ve decided to Say Yes to Life and go in with no expectations…just let things happen.
So I extended an invitation to Husband #2 for an upcoming weekend that I have open. If he chooses to accept, then we’ll move forward with our meeting. If he chooses to decline, then I’ll tell myself at least I extended an olive branch.
Who knows what will happen…
