As parents, we sometimes have to make decisions that are hard.
As educators, we sometimes have to make decisions that are hard.
As therapists, artists, athletes, writers, readers, doctors, lawyers, mechanics, architects, engineers, technicians, electricians, veterinarians, plumbers, representatives, directors, and everyone else in between, we sometimes have to make decisions that are hard.
We all have choices that we have to make. Sometimes it’s an easy choice and other times it can lead us down the path of good and not so good. And sometimes you just don’t know what to do; even though you really do know deep deep down.
But when it comes to our children, because that’s what it really does boil down to, we sometimes have to make decisions that are more than just hard. It’s a decision that could change the rest of their lives, and possibly ours as well.
What does one do in a situation like that? We rely on others. We seek out our support system and stick close to them. We keep chugging along until we hit a roadblock, we wave our little white flag, and we very kindly ask for help. And sometimes, help pops up when you least expect it. “Help” is a kind and generous soul that takes your little white flag, and turns it into shining beacon of hope.
“Help” is a superhero in disguise. And all you have to do is ask.
… and sometimes it’s easier than others to ask for “help.” And sometimes it isn’t. But know that you’re not alone. You have your trusty steed right by your side. You have “help!” Try taking it out for a test drive some times. You might like it, and try it often.
