I recently posted about asking for help. Well, I took my own advice and am so very glad I did!
I technically only asked my parents for help. Why did I wait so long to ask for help when help was so ready to be given? Now I have a full 24hr day to myself to look forward to every month! Ha! That's a big deal!
A couple days after asking for help with my children, my friend calls me up telling me that she got a sitter for the kids so she and I could go out! FUN! Also, my other sweet friend offered to help me with housework while we just hang out!
I was so blessed! And it wasn't burdensome to them.
I just want to encourage you, again, to take that initial step and ask someone for help. Then, watch how many other opportunities come your way in doing so!
Don't be ashamed for not being perfect! It's no fun trying to be anyway. You're still Super Mom or Super Dad! That won't change. Our kids want us happy. And, we need to share the load if we want them to have us at our best!
Yay Me! I kept it short! This is me working on not being an overachiever ;)
I'm excited to get back in the groove of things! Keeping you inspired and speaking LIFE!
