I want to tell you about this friend that I only get to connect with on Facebook who has flat out inspired me this morning. She is a fabulous photographer and this guy gave her a 1 star review - a guy, by the way, who had never used her services. My friend is an amaze-ballsphotographer, an inspire-er of women, a true artist and this just got her dander up, so she asked, on her group page, for people to give her reviews so she could blast this guy out of the water. I was struck by her courage in asking for what she wanted and I wondered........ how often areyou doing that?
In your life? With your love? For yourself?
It's a courageous act, asking for exactly what you want. Especially since, most of the time, you won't get it unless you do ask for it! I'm reminded of those annoying commercials for the lottery - you gotta be in it to win it, and in a strange way, asking for what you want is a ticket to winning yourlife lottery. You might not get what you are asking for, but your chances are 100% better that you will get it than if you didn't ask for it at all.
So, back to my friend (here is the link to the amazing Shirley Lawson's page ), she is 4 people away from wiping that guy off the map, with heartfelt reviews from clients who are delighted to finally have a way to repay her for all the joy and creativity she has lavished on them.
So, back to you, my darlin'.........what can you ask for today? What have you been afraid to request that might make your day, or week? Surprise yourself. Be brave. Ask for something today and see what happens....... make it small, if you're nervous. You can work up to the big stuff ;)
May I please have a little extra Stardust on that Fairy Bun? Thanks, I'll take it :)
