Day 70 ASK for help when you need it

Monday, March 11, 2013

After nearly a month that included being away for an 8 day retreat, daughter moving across the country, and big workload, "I'm so far behind, I think I'm first!" Not original with me; I spotted it a in co-worker's cubicle.

Bright idea: GET HELP. Why is it so hard to a) admit you need help and b) ask for it? I did both and hired Char Lady for three hours. This dear soul is a pleasure to work with, doesn't make me feel bad about my mess, does everything beyond thorough. :-) My chandelier is sparkling, the tops of the lightbulbs in my bathroom mirror have no dust on them. My goal is to simplify my home till I can manage it in spite of work schedule.

"Voluntary simplicity is not about deprivation or sacrifice; it's about discovering what is enough." quoted in AARP

    One of the most difficult things for us to do is to ask for help. Good for you!
