Tuesday Time Saving Tip - ask for help

It's AngelaSpots with another Tuesday time saving tip. My tip of the week is.

"Ask for help."

This is a lesson I learned the hard way. I'm one of those people that spreads myself too thin until I eventually explode. I exploded this past week and poor DH took the brute of it. I finally did something which I should have done ages ago. I asked him to help around the house more. Then today I was at my brick and mortar job (as a cytogenetic technologist) and what happened? I spread myself too thin, but this time I accepted someones offer to help and felt much better.

It's too easy to get overwhelmed by all the things we busy Moms have on the go. It's okay to ask for help.

Great Tip! I know I need to use this advice. I am so bad about asking for help and what's worse is I am REALLY bad at accepting it too! I need to learn to take people up on their offers of help (especially when someone offers to babysit!!) :)

you know, I came up with the same conclusion today.

There are just some jobs you can and then some you cannot do. Playing to our strengths is the best policy. Then ask humbly for help. You might just be surprised at the result!

Asking in anger or sarcasm will not net the results you want, however. (ask me how I know!) :)

How does that old saying go...."Honey draws more bees than vinegar"?
