Day 66: Even for the Not-So-Religious People

Ask and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock and the door will be opened for you.

~ Jesus

Today’s inspirational quote comes from the Bible, and while I’m not a religious person, I think this Bible verse has an important message that can give us all inspiration.  I’m certain there is a biblical interpretation of this portion that is discussed during a church sermon, but for me, this speaks to the fact that if you don’t ask, you will never get what you want.

For me, I maintain a firm belief that when we pursue our dreams we all need assistance from time to time.  If you need help, ask for it.  It’s simple.  Use all the strength around you – family, friends, lovers – these people can lend you their strength when you feel weak.  When you feel that the task in front of you is insurmountable.  When a steady hand is just the thing you need.  Lean on those you trust.

There may come a time when you can return the favor and provide that strength to another close to you.  But if you need a little extra oomph, then ask for it.  Those who love you most will step up, and help you in any way that they can, without expectations, without strings attached.

It takes great strength to admit you need help and ask for.  Don’t hesitate.  Those who care for you will be there when you need them the most.
