53 Pieces of Unsolicited Advice: No.4


This is something I am so terribly, terribly guilty of myself… not asking for help when I need it.

It’s usually because I believe that people can’t do things just the right way – my version of perfect.  It’s something I’ve been working on for a while, and every now and again I fall off the wagon and feel that it’s my way or not at all.  But it really is okay to ask – for help, for advice, for a shoulder in a time of need… It’s not a sign of weakness, but a sign of strength – strength to know that you need someone to help you along your path.

Really must print this one out for myself…

PS. Since this is week 4 of the Unsolicited Advice series, I thought I’d better mention that I’m creating all of these with the amazing Canva.  Not sure what their status is at the moment, but I had to apply to join. If that’s still the case, and you’re a fan of graphic-design-type-stuff, then I recommend you sign up… it’s all sorts of good fun!

    I am guilty of that and it’s my work in progress. The other things is keeping it simple, I keep on repeating that to myself of late and it seems to be paying off big time.

    This week has been a hard one for me mentally, I felt overwhelmed on Monday by how much I have to do this side of xmas for getting my workshops up and running.

    It has helped talking to hubby and I looked at what has to be done and what can wait till after xmas. That helped a lot but I also realised that I have put so much pressure on myself and that wasn’t helping. So today I have reviewed my plan for the next month and will now be scaling it back. On the basis of keeping it simple and not running myself into the ground.
