Do you ever wonder why it’s so hard to ask for help? Why do we even feel guilty when we do? Are we a society that feels as though we failed because someone helped us along the way? I have seriously been thinking about this lately especially because I am the ultimate self-reliant individual. I love the challenge of doing things on my own, whether it’s developing my own diet, exercise routine, entertaining, shopping or projects at work. I don’t know any other way. Then I discovered something, a little help goes a LONG way.

My own personal realization of this came a few weeks ago when I decided to take control of my eating lifestyle. After struggling many years with my weight, I thought I finally got it! I studied and became a certified holistic health coach and thought I knew everything. Then stress, life and change hit me and I lost myself. I realized what I needed was accountability. Part of the accountability part was asking for help, talking with someone about my struggles and taking it one day a time - what a difference this has made for me!

You may be laughing because you literally just get how hard it is to take one day at a time. How many times have we heard that? This time, I am living it - one day and one thing at a time in all areas of my life. This is no easy feat for me as I am the ultimate multitasker. I think a lot of women are. We all want to do everything all at the same time and all amazingly perfect.

I know when I really thought about it, asking for help has actually made me better and reach my goals - one goal at a time, one day a time. I have realized, asking for help, a little SOS, does not make you weak, it actually makes you stronger. Perhaps it is the fact that human beings are more than their bodies. We have souls, we feel and we connect. It is that connection that makes us see what we don’t and learn what we need to.

So I challenge you to reach out for help or reach out your hand. We all can you use a little help. Please share your thoughts and experiences.

Until Next Time…
Find the Love. Live the Life. Love the Life you Live.

With Love,

  1. Depending on others requires so much humility. At times, I feel like there's nothing I can't do then I find myself falling on my back only to reach up for help.

    Life is all about balance.

    Great post!!!
