Sometimes the answer and help you need, is right in front of you!

Yep, that's me!

On both hands and knees, trying to figure out how to navigate getting up this slippery hill without falling on my behind at True Grit


And right in front of me was -

A helping hand waiting & ready for me, all I had to do was look up, reach out and accept it.


I used to live by the motto "I'm a strong, independent woman"


Which don't get me wrong, I am those things but...

It also worked at times in my detriment.


The hours, days, weeks of frustration, going around in circles, attempting to figure it all out on my own.


Feeling like I had to have all my sh*t together and not show any weaknesses or what was really going on behind the smile.


Not wanting to be a burden or inconvenience on others


And other times it was a front -

Feeling alone, misunderstood, like I was different and the only one experiencing it.


What I've learnt over the years is -


๐Ÿ’œ You get further, faster when you reach out and ask for help, from those who have the knowledge and experience


๐Ÿ’œ No-one, no matter what you see on social media has all their ducks in a row... and if they tell you they do, I'd call their bluff


๐Ÿ’œ You're never alone. I have some amazing people around me who, know when I'm going through "stuff" and reach out. That in our conversations, they express they go through the same things and then appreciate... it's normal because, we all go through it


๐Ÿ’œ When you're bogged down in sh*t, if you come up for air, the answer and help is usually starring you, right in the face


๐Ÿ’œ People want to help. Not because they need to, feel obliged to, have to but... because they love to and want to. That they want to see you win. That actually lights them up and gives them purpose


And the kicker... you're pretty selfish if you want to take that opportunity away from them and yourself ๐Ÿ™Š


Next time you're caught up, look up, ask for and accept the help and answers that are there waiting for you!


If there's something you'd love help with, you're welcome to send me a DM - whether I can help directly or connect you with someone who can, we're here to help you live and build your dreams
