Whatever That May Be
I once had a boss who told me that the most important thing you can do is ask for what you need, whatever that may be. It was a seemingly simple piece of advice that might sound rather obvious, but oh, how it makes a difference when you realize that whatever that may be is a pretty broad brush stroke, and it includes a good old fashioned pep talk.
Yesterday I needed a good old fashioned pep talk, though I didn't realize it before it was too late, before I pouted and lacked grace, before I crumpled numerous sheets of paper and gave in to the grump. Yesterday, I needed a pep talk and it found me just in time. Though I am a little sad that I didn't think to ask for one before my doubts and frustrations got the better of me, it came just in time for me to pick up the crumpled paper, smooth out some of the rough edges, and begin again.
And that's what this is all about most days, beginning again.
