Life's just full of decisions, isn't it.
Which book shall I read next?
What shall I make for dinner?
What are we going to watch tonight?
Some decisions have more far reaching results in our lives.
Should I date this person?
Is this the person I should marry?
Which job should I take?
Which school should the children attend?
And sometimes the decisions we make are clearly the wrong ones.
Almost 7 years ago I made a decision and I left my husband.
It was tough. Emotionally. Financially.
About 2 years ago the divorce was actually finalized.
This has been a decision I have not regretted. Even though some sadness resulted (mainly that my ex used my children as ammunition against me).
I know this song refers to the child being the bullet in mummys' gun... my 3 are the bullets in their fathers' gun...
and in true Forrest Gump fashion.. "that's all I have to say about that".
The second decision I made which I haven't really regretted at all was to move home to England after 20 years living in the USA.
It was hard work, packing things up, giving things away, settling all the business.
But it was all worth it.
I'm close to family again, living proof that in fact, you *can* go home!
