It’s Okay to Ask for Help…

“When I need help I ask, when others need help I give it”  Sara

Many people feel that asking for assistance is a sign of weakness. I believe it is a sign of strength. When you ask for help whether on a project, to move furniture or advice on a problem, you are acknowledging the  fact that you have limitations and that you need others.  We are all very knowledgeable  in certain areas but not in all,  so we need each other.

Sometimes there are very stubborn people in the world (like myself)  who resist the urge to ask for help and do it all themselves.  I believe at times this is okay because it pushes us to learn and grow.  However when you begin to stumble, feel burned out, or your project isn’t going well  it’s important to acknowledge it and realize  it is okay to”ask” and most people are more than willing to lend a helping hand.

On the flip side there are also people in this world who are always asking for help and never learn to to do things for themselves.  Those people I believe are selling themselves short.  A little struggle is good, it helps us  to grow and learn.It is best to keep a balance.  Attempt things on your own first, if you find you are at a standstill acknowledge your needs and ask for some help.

Here is my STAY POSITIVE thought for the week.


My Attitude=POSITIVE

Being a positive person doesn’t mean I don’t ever feel angry or sad.  It doesn’t mean I am always in a good mood.  It means that I acknowledge how I feel, analyze why and I figure out what I can do with it so that I can move forward. Being positive is a way of life and an attitude. There are times when I want to vent or have a pity party.  I limit it to just a few minutes since feeling sorry for myself really isn’t very productive.  I think it is important to feel what you are feeling and don’t deny it. Figure out why your are feeling that way and work through it.  What happened? What can I do about it?  If there is nothing you can do then ask yourself what did I learn from it?  Move forward, change the way you feel by changing your thoughts.  Think about something else.  Have your inner dialect move on to a different subject.

Being a positive person I am not ALWAYS happy.  I look at the brighter side of every situation and move forward in a positive light.  I remember things could always be worse and I count my blessings.  I remember every problem is my challenge and I will grow and learn from it.

Take time out for YOU

It is so important to take time out for ourselves.  We live in such a busy world that sometimes we are doing so much that we ignore what our bodies are telling us.  Sometimes we feel stressed, depressed or just plain overwhelmed. Take a deep breath and remember that you have needs too. Listen to what your body is  telling you.   Do you need some play time for yourself?    Remember we need to take a break and take care of ourselves as well.   Go out and do something for youself.  Even if it is just for a few hours,  it can make you feel refreshed, relaxed and renewed.  When we feel better we are able to focus and perform at a higher level.  We tend to enjoy being active and doing more when we don’t feel so tired and overwhelmed.

YOU are important,  take some time for yourself.

That is my STAY POSITIVE thought for the week.
