Prompt and image from Jamie Ridler’s Wishcasting Wednesday: http://jamieridlerstudios.ca/wishcasting-wednesday-ask
Hmmmm, this one had me stumped for a bit. Usually, I read the prompt and a thought instantly popped into my head but with this one, my mind was just blank. So I started thinking about WHY it has me stumped. I think part of the problem is that I don’t LIKE to ask for anything. I like to take care of myself, do things for myself, be in control of myself and I feel like asking for things from others makes me less in control. It’s not that I never ask for anything but really, it’s generally the last option I go to. I think my other reason for not asking is that to me, asking means you’re putting yourself out there. You’re setting yourself up for possible rejection – someone may laugh at you, they may snub their nose at the gall you had in asking (why would I help YOU???), they may simply say no and my feelings may get hurt. So, I suppose that the first thing I have to do is to open up mind to the idea that asking is ok and then if I were comfortable with asking, what would I ask for? Ok, here goes. If I could open myself up to ask for something, it would be to ask of someone to make me a higher priority in his/her life. I feel that there are one or more people in my life who take me a bit for granted and I wonder if I am as important to them as they are to me. Whew. That was a big one.
