Asking

I was thinking today - sometimes we get things out of life because we ask for them. I’ve spent my life resentful of women who ask for things - thinking  - who does she think she *is* after all? Why does she think she deserves special treatment?

But you know? I’m realizing. No one hands things to you on a silver platter. You have to work for them, sure, but sometimes you have to ask for them too. I work hard every day, but will my boss walk by and hand me a promotion? Probably not. I have to ask for it...and that’s scary.

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” Eleanor Roosevelt
