[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Asketh please.....

It isn't always easy to express our desires. We worry that others will see
us as pushy or demanding, or that we'll be turned down. But asking for what
you want is a necessary part of life, and I've found that the more you
practice it, the easier it becomes. Iyanla Vanzant

Hands up if you can identify with Miss Iyanla! Right now my both hands are
up! And give yourself a huge round of applause if you ask for what you
want! Bravo!!!

Listen, me? I am learning this! I was always the "nice cool one" and I
bought into that wholesale! So now that the label was on how could I be
what the masses would call "pushy" and so it went! Proverbial shit had to
hit the fan for me to ask! Let the peace be!!!

So I've been practice it why? because practice leads to mastery and when
you practice sometimes it gets tough but you continue and you get better at
it!

So, ask without fear, be prepared to hear no and have a plan when you do,
be committed and most of all love yourself through it all Peace!!!
