There comes a day when you finally say enough is ENOUGH!!!!

Enough with the drama. Enough with the games. Enough with the pretending. Enough with settling for less. Enough with always trying to be the best. Enough with selling yourself short. Enough with ALLOWING people to take advantage of you. Enough with waiting for them to change. Enough with not protecting yourself enough.  Enough with the pain. Enough with sitting by the sidelines. Enough with the excuses. Enough with silencing your voice. Enough with ignoring that small still voice. Enough with always putting yourself last. Enough with watching your life pass you by. Enough with watching your dreams die. Enough with the people pleasing. Enough with worrying what others think. Enough with worrying what they’ll say. Enough with letting them define who you should be.

You are tired of being sick and tired. You are tired of feeling beaten up and worn out. You are tired of watching your spirit die. You are tired of lying to yourself. You are tired of ignoring your truth. You are tired of living a lie. You are tired of perceiving yourself as a victim. You are tired of LETTING others hurt you. You are tired of dragging all that weight around with you. You are tired of hurting yourself. You are tired of betraying yourself. You are tired of not honoring yourself. You are tired of holding yourself hostage. You are tired of hoping for a better day.

You finally realize there is a better way. You finally realize that peace is the only way. You finally realize that you are worthy. You finally realize that you deserve to be happy. You finally realize that YOU hold the key to the lock. You finally realize that the buck really does stop with YOU. You finally realize you can TAKE your life back. You finally realize that you are stronger than you think. You finally realize all the power that lies within YOU.  You finally realize that the only person standing in your way, is YOU. You finally realize you have wings…..you take off and FLY!!!

    Self worth! Although it often tends to take longer than necessary, the realization of it is the most freeing thing ever. We are our own ultimate source of joy. Choosing to be Happy- as easy as it sounds, it’s the hardest to do.

    Thanks Yvonne for the words of encouragement .

      Hi Vivie. Thanks for visiting my blog and reading my articles. I appreciate your support and feedback. I know what you mean, I sometimes wonder if am spelling “enough” right, ha!ha! I am glad this piece resonates with you. I guess we really all do experience a thing or two that makes us say enough is enough. It takes a lot of courage to come to that realization and even more to do something about it.
