This often comes up for me when trying to reach for something. Being vertically challenged, a lot is out of reach for me. In the grocery store, the top shelf is either tippy toes or hope the item I want is sitting on the edge, or I walk past and leave without it. Of late I have been asking another customer for help reaching the item in need. What I have received from these people is far beyond the item handed to me, I receive the look of someone very happy to help or at the very least not feel like I’ve burdened someone. It’s been a huge lesson for me reminding me that helping is a two way street – helping others is amazing, but also important is receiving help when needed.
For the next week, I invite you to help by:
Sharing your strengths with others
Asking for assistance with areas you are weaker in
Being kind and gentle with those you help and with yourself for seeking help.
Mostly, I wish you a week of realizing the power of service of others and service for you. Giving can’t happen without a receiver and receiving can’t happen without a giver. Allow yourself to experience the grace and gratitude in both aspects.
Until next time, help yourself to living life fully.
Big hugs and mucho love,
