“You get in life what you have the courage to ask for.” -Oprah Winfrey
This quote is powerful. This is an area I struggle with immensely. I am a peace maker and a perfectionist and while they have a place and time when they are a blessing, it prohibits me from asking for things. Things from others, things from myself, and I put myself in a box because a lot of times I don’t have the courage to ask for it. This is something I am working on. This quote reminds me to have courage because I want the life that I look back on and think “damn that was amazing”, but it takes courage.
Be filled with courage to ask for the things in life you want, whether that is asking for help from others or giving yourself permission to chase after that dream you don’t dare try to go after because you won’t allow yourself to step out of the fear. Step out, be bold, you may fail, but you may also succeed and either way when it is done you will have grown into the woman you were meant to be.
