Courage to Ask

Sometimes we may feel afraid of what the future brings us and sometimes we take it in stride. I feel that sometimes we need encouragement from any direction we can get it. Sometimes we need to sit quiet and wait. While patience is a virtue, I feel that the courage to ask is a virtue too. Courage to ask means that we have decided that we cant do it on our own. It takes a community is the old adage and if we put our trust in the universe then the courage to ask is the next step in getting us where we need to be. Maybe its a simple question we need the answer to and maybe its inquiring about what we should do next to grab that brass ring. Be nice to yourself. Sometimes all we need to do is ask.
