So after a night/day spent at the hospital, yesterday and today are full blown rest days. It was also, let other people help day. Now, I am one of those people that do not ask for help. At all. I learned-at a young age-to depend on myself to get things done. I’ve always felt a mixed bag of emotions when attempting to go to others for help. I always feel that I am either a burden, not going to have things done the way I want them to, am asking for too much or just shouldn’t be bothering others. It’s strange, I know, but it’s how I’ve always felt. But after that hospital visit, my body is just exhausted and I realize, I need all the help I can get! Mind you, this is all pre-baby. What on Earth is going to happen once the peanut is out?

I feel like this is God telling me to, “pump the breaks kid”. I work in television, am an author and my life is basically go go go. While I try to “rest”, the truth is I really don’t. I’m always putting others before me and seriously need to pull back from that. At this point in my life I truly need to understand that “No”, is a complete sentence.

    Hey love, I’m so sorry to hear you haven’t been well. I wish you a speedy recovery but also take your time and rest! aha. Since a very young age I’ve also experienced situations which made me into the person who never asks for anything unless it is offered. Some people get really frustrated that i do that but since becoming pregnant i realized i have a bigger support group than i expected and I’ve had to ask for help a few times. The taste was bitter haha. We can do this! just stay strong and make sure to not push yourself if you have loved ones around who will help you.
