tah

I don't much like asking for help and it takes a lot for me to ask.....though a while ago I read a self-help (!) book called "Just Ask" or similar and have gotten better at it...... but its not something that comes that naturally. On the flip side I don't think I am viewed as someone who particularly needs help; like I can deal with stuff and im solid like a rock (funny thing perception is hey!).

Anyway, I keep going back to a moment, which was also a while ago now, an impacting moment in my current life it was when I said to my Dad...."er....Dad....I need to ask you something.....?" and my Dad said straight out and straight away "the answer is yes", "whatever it is the answer is yes".
And it still makes me teary just thinking about it- later he admitted immediately thinking o oh what are you going to ask me!

Anyway its got me thinking about giving and it got me thinking about luck and its got me thinking about how things have gone in the last couple of years. Anyhoo Im stuck for the exact words so I will just say semi-cryptically The door to opportunity is always labeled 'push' and .......thankyou........ Dad and my freakishly supportive family and friends xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

How lovely that your Dad said yes unconditionally. That brings tears to my eyes too :-)

I too am seen as someone who doesn't need help as I 'help' others all day at work... but sometimes i do and it is nice to know that I too have someone that will always say yes...your story of your dad makes me really miss mine terribly.

Thanks for leaving a comment so I could find your lovely blog. I find it very hard to ask for help as well almost to the point of doing myself an injury. Your dad sounds sweet, lucky you. p.s. loving the nimbus the lion.
