It had been almost six months since we saw each other, it all happened on that fateful day. He would always follow me, wherever I go, coax me and convince me, but I just did not simply have the courage to take the step and accept him.
WHAT WILL PEOPLE THINK ?
WHAT WILL THE SOCIETY THINK ?
ARE MARRIED WOMEN IN OUR SOCIETY PERMITTED TO DO ALL THIS?
I AM A MOTHER, WILL IT HAVE A WRONG INFLUENCE ON MY SON ?
There were various questions in my mind. He would always play footsie with me. Tempt me by those expensive perfect gowns as if they were just created for me. The stress was just too much. At one point it was like I had to select my temptation over my duties. I was tired of the continous Heart Vs. Brain battle going on in my mind. I wanted it to end but I was confused.
At one point he was so perfect, almost like a dream. He could fulfill all my wishes and understood me and more importantly understood the needs of my body. On the other hand, I was married, I don't know if what I am doing is right or wrong.
And then that day, I finally decided to give up on the society and listen to my heart.
It was 7 pm. I was still doubtful but was determined that it is more important to listen to my heart. After all, it was high time. Till when should I be slave to this world.
I was all ready in my favourite outfit.
He was staring at me as if its the first time we met.
We finally took the stairs and went to the nearby garden.
We had a long walk and a long chat and finally decided to indulge into something that we always wanted to do.
Those 2 minutes gave me memories for lifetime.
I felt that finally I could meet myself.
It was the best day of my life....
When I decided that my health is more important than what the society thinks, I do not need anybody's permission to dress up in shorts and run to loose weight.
Women loosing post partum weight is not a fashion, it is a necessity for us so that we don't encounter bigger diseases when we grow old.
Spending 30 mins a day walking with music is the best time I ever have in my life.
