I asked, you answered.
First, thank you! I appreciate everyone who emailed or texted me in answer to blog #1115. Sometimes, I need the validation to continue, though I wish that weren’t the case.
I’m continuing to write daily, however may take Heather Ettinger’s suggestion of consolidating the blog to a different Unf♥<kwithable® format to create some space, add a new feel, and perhaps reduce the frequency. I’m pondering that as a new way to “have it all.”
There are lessons in asking for feedback as I just did, which is an unintended result; thank you again.
- I challenged my assumptions; it was a version of asking for help which is uncomfortable for me
- I had to listen beyond what I knew, which offered growth and opportunity
- I could get beyond the “stuck” point because others offered permission, opportunity, ideas, and validation – all of which made any decision okay, and the choice was still mine!
- I felt supported – even through a blog – it became a dialog
- It was easy and allowed me to pause without quitting. #win
What I’d offer in return to you is this: when you’re stuck, feeling like it’s hard or challenged, ask for input. It may not feel like you’re asking for help, yet you are.
Pause and take a breath – where could you ask for input today?
