As I have gotten a huge wakeup call with the asthma attack that I suffered, I have to remember to allow for people and loved ones to help me. When we live in survival mode for the majority of our lives, we tend to do everything ourselves. We don't feel that we can count on anyone so we do everything ourselves. Does this sound familiar to anyone reading today?
My whole life I taught myself to only count on myself....no one can help me so don't even ask. I have been ashamed and embarrassed when I needed help; so I would not ask for it. I always felt like I had to do it all myself. However, when I look at my life and realize that I have been given the same information as everyone else put on this earth. I did not have special powers to have it all figured out before my time; but I have always felt like I could not count on anyone but myself to do it right. I ask you; What is Right?
Think about the inspiration for today....Remember that when we refuse another's help, we deprive them of the blessing...we also deprive ourselves for the blessings. Truth be told I have always been afraid to ask for help in everything that I do. I don't ask for help with my business, I don't ask for help with problems that I have in my life, I don't ask for help on anything. I have always felt like I had to do it all myself. Growing up in my home the motto was "If you want something done right you have to do it yourself." Does this sound familiar to any of you out there?
I have lived my whole life like this dismissing all the blessing and making my life so much harder than it needs to be. One thing for sure I am grateful to have gotten as sick as I did because I have been able to evaluate my entire life and how I have been running it. It is so important for me to help people be the best versions of themselves and be confident in who they are no matter what. I have been given the greatest gift to look at how far I have come and how much further I need to go. But what is most amazing is that I am realizing that I can no longer do it myself. I need the help of my friends and family all around me. I need help with my business and to be a motivational speaker. I need help with being able to accomplish so many great goals that I have in my life. My dreams are becoming so big that I need people around me to bless as I am being blessed with their gifts.
Don't feel like you have to do it all yourself. Ask for help! It may be one of the hardest things that you do in your life....it was one of the hardest things that I had to do. Ask for help is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign of bravery. You know that you can't do it all so call upon the ones who can help you get it done. You will bless their lives more than you can imagine. They will be able to share their unique gifts with you to accomplish your dreams. Ask for help my friends; you owe it to YOU TO ASK!!!
Until we meet again my friends....
With all my love....Rita
