Have the Courage to Ask for What You Want

Jump in and take a risk you are thinking about– even if it makes you quake in your boots. I love this quote from Oprah Winfrey: 

  • “You get in life what you have the courage to ask for.” 

For example, yesterday a local flower shop was giving away roses to people named Mary (they pick a different name every Friday for free rose Friday.) I was making notecards at home, but when I saw that it was my name they picked, I had to decide if I wanted to drive ten minutes to receive a free rose. I pondered the situation and then decided to go for it! I walked into the shop, asked for a rose, and they let me have this beautiful peachy/maroon bloom.
I’m glad I took that little risk because I have a rose that smells like honey on my counter. 🌹 Take that risk today!
