President Barack Obama has been quoted as saying “The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.” And while I agree with this action oriented approach, it doesn’t tell the full story.
If I attempt to do everything in our lives with no help, I can guarantee one thing will happen. We will fall and fail much to often with the weight of the world on our shoulders. No man or woman is an island. And we need help to make these dreams we like to call our own real. It’s that simple.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed today, do something about it. Ask for help. Invite that connection and expand your dreams into reality.
