Asking is a gift

If you don’t ask, you don’t get.

We all have dreams, aspirations, wishes... but we're afraid to take the first step:

Simply ASKING.

Every child knows this instinctively but we, as adults, seem to have grown to be asking averse - The fear of hearing a No. The fear or rejection.

While being in the hospital, I could not walk. For more than week, I was limited in my movement. I had to ask for almost everything: food, clothing, taking a shower, even tossing my urine away.

I don't remember the last time I've asked so much in such short time.

It was like an asking therapy.

And then I realized:

Asking is a gift - we can get what we want while giving someone else a chance to give, to feel generous, to love.

Asking cuts through the mental noise and creates the space for others to do the same.

Asking is a gift because it's the best way—the only way, really—to get what we want.

And what if we get a no?

We moved one step further. We can move on. We can ask someone else. We can let go. We can...

Most importantly, we were real. We expressed our desires. We shared a vulnerable moment with the world. We created an opportunity for an alignment..

An opportunity for a YES.
