Hi there friends!
I found this quote & I wanted to share with you all.
"The first step to receiving an answer, is being brave enough to ask a question."
Don't you love that? I do.
Something I have always been nervous about is asking questions that may make me sound "stupid" or that I don't know anything. The older I get, the more I realize how important it is to ask questions. There are so many things I do not know. Approaching the next chapter in my life I am trying to soak up as much information as possible. I am asking a lot of questions because I know that is the best way to learn.
Everyday we are given the opportunity to learn. Don't let those opportunities slip away. Ask questions, read about something that interests you & listen when people speak ( I MEAN REALLY LISTEN).
It is easy to get overwhelmed with life. We are faced with different decisions that we need to make each day. Yes-we want to be superwoman/superman and do everything on our own but sometimes you just can't. You need to ask for help and ask for guidance when you need it most. That is something that I am 100% working on this year. Between planning a wedding, and preparing to move in with Joe we both have a lot of questions. Our families have been beyond supportive during the whole process.
I am in the process of registering and there are literally a bazillion brands of every kitchen appliance on the market. How in the world do you know what to pick? You call mom and ask. Don't sit and pretend you know what is going on because odds are you don't. At least I can speak for myself, I sure have no idea what is going on. & You know what?
that is okay. It is all a part of the process. Learn something new each day. We all have to start somewhere.
Do me a favor and take a second- Look at yourself now, and look at yourself 5 years ago. I can guarantee you that you have grown so much over that period of time. Things take time. You aren't expected to have everything figured out overnight. Actually let me correct that, I don't think we ever have everything all figured out.
So keep asking questions, keep being curious, and keep wanting to learn.
If you want to know more about something, educate yourself.
