Sometimes We Need a Nudge
I was pulling out of my driveway one day not too long ago and I spotted something unusual near the curb. I got out of my car to get a closer look and saw that it was a turtle lying on its back. I wasn’t sure whether or not to disturb the little guy. Then I surmised that it must have been attempting to climb up the curb when it fell backward onto its shell. I gave it a soft roll onto its front and watched it slowly makes its way again. Poor thing just needed a gentle nudge.
Sometimes I too just need a little nudge. The key is finding the right kind of nudge. I don’t particularly like being told what to do and I don’t like it when others feel the need to take over. However, talking with someone I trust, someone who has my back and is willing to help me uncover my own strengths and sources of motivation is what makes all the difference in the world to me. That’s what has helped me move in the right direction and with renewed enthusiasm as well! That’s what has enabled me to tap into my own truths.
Sometimes the hardest part is asking for help. Now granted, the turtle on its back was clearly not able to do this – but YOU can! Are you at a point in your life where you might need a little nudge to shift over to what you really want to be doing? You know there’s something that could be different in a great yet perhaps intimidating way, and you’re just not sure how to take the next step.
I can help if you’re ready. Need a little nudge?
