Thoughts for Thursday: A Little Help Here

I find myself always just doing things because I figure I might as well do it and get it done with, or do it the way I know I want it done. I also can be impatient and well if I can do it now and not have to wait around for someone else I will. This nearly got me in more trouble than it would have been worth at work the other day. I went down by myself to deal with a person in an area where no one can really see you or hear you unless they are watching on camera. This woman didn't like what I had to say and ended up trying to punch me and such to where I had to wrestle her back in her room. There was a point where I should have got some help, but I was like I can just get this done myself. In hindsight that was really dumb. Do you find yourself doing things just so they get done or do you say, a little help here?

CONSTANTLY. I painted the kids' bathroom when I was 8 months pregnant with Briar because it had to get done before the tile could be finished. Could I have asked my Dad to help me? Yes. But it would have had to wait a week, and I wouldn't have it. Many times I am forced into doing things because hubby just isn't around enough to help, but there are plenty of times when I take it on myself.

I am so glad you are okay and that you weren't hurt (you are a tough woman!)

I tend to want to get things done NOW! Which means I tend to go in it alone. I have always had a hard time asking for help even from little on, I have this I can get it done my self attitude (which at times does not work or is impossible) I am glad that you are ok!

Egad! Glad you are okay. That sounds crazy! But to answer the question....I've actually gotten very good at teaching/delegating and having PATIENCE through it all. It took years. Trust me. lol!!
