All you need is a little help!
Do you ever feel like it all comes down at one?
Firstly, I caught flu, the bone aching, chesty kind. I had to cancel an entire week of classes in the studio. Not easy for an ‘I can do it all’ Virgo kinda gal!
Then I was suddenly called to Bloemfontein with my son. I had to drop everything and go, canceling another 2 weeks of classes. 3 weeks canceled? Surely not?
And so, I did the unthinkable – I asked for help. I asked my regular sub and she filled in so beautifully where she could but that still left 1 week unaccounted for, so I asked other teachers to help… and they did.
The planet didn’t stop turning because I asked for help.
My students didn’t revolt because I wasn’t there.
I didn’t fall to pieces because I couldn’t do it myself.
Do you feel like that sometimes? Like, if I can’t do this the world will stop turning? And then push through to prove to the world that you can do it?
I learnt a powerful lesson about asking for help. I can’t do it all on my own. I need support. Not only in my studio but across the length and breadth of my life.
Do you find it easy to ask for help? Do you open yourself to being held and supported? Or does asking for help fill you with guilt and shame?
The past 3 weeks have taught me that the support is there, I simply need to reach out. Everyone who stepped in to help me did so willingly and with Love, Kindness and Grace.
I realized that this support has always been there but I’ve turned away from it. I’ve wanted to prove that I can do it all, but I’ve realized that I don’t need to do it all!
As we step into this new week lets open our hearts and minds to the possibility of being held and supported on this journey called life.
Have a beautiful week lovely souls x
