Were you able to wake up tomorrow in the body of a different person, whom would you pick? And what would be the first thing you did as THAT person?
Thank you to everyone who participated in #12's Think About It Thursday's question.
I found it ironic that I got into a situation of having to ask for help this past week. I don't normally like to have to ask for help. I'm the kind of girl that likes to keep my work life work. And my personal life personal. But they kind of had to collide a bit when my husband had to leave on 3 days notice for a 18 day work trip. We both work opposite schedules which help us with not having to pay for childcare.
The schedule that had been done at work, had to change. Calls to my mother to see if she had any vacation time to spare to help a daughter out. A "I'm-gonna-freak-out" call to my friend which resulted in a margarita session.
It was stressful, overwhelming and humbling all at the same time. Stressful, what do I do if they say no? Overwhelming, they ALL said whatever you need, whatever you need. Humbling, the insecure part of me got a nudge from the You.Are.Special part of me and said deal with it.
It was simple really. I had to ask for help. I had to. A lot of you commented how hard that was. And I couldn't have agreed more.
On to share some comments from others...
My husband. First thing....let the wife sleep in, take the kid OUT for breakfast, and then to the park, and then.....you get it. Right?
