Day 326 - Why It's Important To Ask For Help.
Hey! It's Sunday and I am going to keep this post short as I know everyone is most likely traveling for the holidays or preparing for the week. Speaking of which, I'm in charge of the whole thanksgiving meal this week. It's just my family but I feel impending anxiety about how to cook a turkey. So much so, I am avoiding preparing for the Thursday feast. The thought of butter, basting and roasting have my palms sweaty. As with other things in my life, I realized this morning I just need to ask for help.
Help is all around us and other people are generous. They want to give their time and they want to see success. When help is in play, everyone feel good and it gets problems solved. Have you ever noticed how adults constantly encourage kids to ask for help? Why don't adults do the same for other adults? More importantly, why don't we ourselves ask for help?
Today, create the ask for help. Do you need help developing a dish for Thanksgiving? Ask for help. Is there a work project that has you spinning? Ask for help. Are the kids at a developmental milestone and driving you crazy? Ask for help. Has your computer slowed down to a maddening pace? Ask for help. Are you generally feeling overwhelmed and need a fresh life perspective? Ask for help.
Individually it's hard to change. Together, united, if we support each other, WE can change the world around us.
