Thankful Thursdays - My Personality

Hello Lovelies, 

Another triple whammy for you today as I've also got a product review to come, but I really like this "Thankful Thursdays" feature as it makes me get some perspective and hopefully perks you up a bit before the weekend!

This one is a tad self-indulgent...

Today I am mostly thankful for my new found personality, I used to be the kind to never ask for anything and never put myself "out there" for fear of rejection, but I seemed to have grown up a lot in the last 6 months and my biggest mantra has been "if you don't ask, you don't get."

Bear this in mind lovelies, the worst that someone can ever say is no, and I'll bet that they respect you a lot more for being confident enough to ask. I experienced a few knock backs job wise at the beginning of the year, but all of them commended me for coming forward and having the balls to put together a business plan and go into a fully established business and let them know what I think.

Now, I extend that into all walks of life, I was too nervous to ask for certain things for my birthday, but Lee's said he'll do what he can and of course, I don't expect the world. I was too shy to ask him if we could look at engagement rings together so that we both knew firmly what we wanted, and he said yes to the idea right away!

I asked at work if I could have an Adam as a demonstrator because it's silly that nobody in my part of the country has ever even seen one, and guess what, I should be in it by the end of next week. I've also given them my business plan and they're having a very, very serious look at it. 

I don't want to go into all of the gorey details of my life and how I've applied it, but seriously, if there's something you've been dreaming of, just go for it. Ask someone for help, ask me for help! I'll always respond to anyone! 

I used to say "yeah but I'd be mortified if I got rejected" but now, I just take it all with a smile, you can't have everything all of the time and you can't always get what you want, but it does pay off, if 9 people say no, 1 will probably say yes!

What have you been scared to ask for and when you did it fell right into your lap?

love and kisses
