Asking for what you want

Many times you will hear people say how lucky someone is when they seem to get everything they want. The operative word there is seem. To me, no one really gets what they want just by waking up or being born. To truly get what you want, I believe you have to ask for it. You have to really believe you deserve it and state your case firmly and with passion. That goes hand in hand with working hard when going after a dream. Working hard alone won't get people to notice you. That is when asking comes in.

It really is so simple. Ask, work hard, trust and do the things you need to do to get the things that are important to you. Now this is not to say that everything we ask for will happen or be given to us. There is balance in the world and sometimes being told no can be good for us, but one will never know unless they ask for something they want. Achieving something may be as simple as just asking. Give a it shot. You never know.

Overdoing It

How do you know when you have worn yourself too thin? Is it when you forget little things? Is it when you about to fall asleep during a conversation or it is when you lose even the simplest things when your at home cleaning?

Life does come at you fast. Sometimes an event like a sick parent that you have to rush home to visit can throw you for a loop. It can also be something good like going to a event out of town or getting an unexpected job offer. There does come a time in life when one has to to sit back and just be. The purpose of just being is so that when it does come time to make a decision, the right one can be made. There is such a thing as being too busy that it is hard to think clearly.

In a world that tells you that you always have to something, maybe the best answer is to sometimes do nothing and just be and allow the answer to come to you. The best answer could definitely be not to overdo anything in your life.
