It’s Never As Bad As You Think

Have you ever had one of those days?

Actually, I’ve been having one of those “couple of months” …

And looking at a global scale, the world seems to be having one of those years?!

Back in September, I blogged about reaching out, and today has just highlighted to me how people are willing to help, if only we reach out and ask.

A quick text to a member of our studio for a local garage recommendation meant we’re now getting our car sorted and the guy’s coming along to our studio for a free taster.

A Whatsapp message to our Arbonne upline resulting in a lovely phone call …

And yet, why do we feel as if we have to take on the world on our own?  Reaching out works both ways; for us, life becomes lighter and we realise that it’s never as bad as we think, and for the other person, it’s always heartwarming when you know you’ve helped someone.

This is something that I’m still learning to appreciate. Aside from two cousins in London and a nephew in Paris, the rest of my family are back in the far east, or scattered around the world. Social media keeps us in touch but we’ve been brought up to “get on with it” and “put on a face”.

What I’ve come to believe now is having a “family” of choice, people that you care about, that care for you.  People you can reach out to, who are willing to help.  This is what we are creating at our lovely Yoga Space in Chew Valley, with our My Kind of Yoga Ambassadors, and with our Arbonne team …

Who do you have in your network?

Who do you know you can call on, and yet, stop yourself from doing so because you feel you should be able to do everything?

Perhaps you’re sitting on the fence about being part of one of our teams …

Reach out … you may find it’s never as bad as you think!
