Speaking up, making requests, offering your opinion, giving voice…
When you are willing to do these things you invite the possibility for new things to happen.
Maybe you make a request of a friend to help out with your kids so that you can get the time you need for yourself. Perhaps you provide an observation about the behavior in someone you love and it gets you talking about what’s going on in their heart. What about sharing your opinion on a situation which sheds light on a difficult issue?
Your voice is valuable and has the power to enact change.
Perhaps your perspective is the very thing that’s needed!
Most often the risky bit comes in because you make assumptions of what the other person will say or do. What if you risked being surprised?
It takes courage to speak up, share, open up, and make a request…
What might your silence cost you?
