But that is what is happening – and it is producing lots of opportunities for me to practice asking for help, letting go and embracing uncertainty.
A particular experience of this was letting go around the kitchen on moving day. We had a crowd of our friends to help, and two of the women offered to unpack the boxes in the kitchen. Now this would normally be a job I enjoy doing, and feel quite territorial about. But this time I practiced ‘letting go’ – that is, letting them put things away in cupboards, using their intuition’; I practiced uncertainty as we really did not know when we would get online again; and I practiced receiving help from all our friends.
Result? The move went amazingly smoothly, we had fun, and I relished the letting go! So if you identify with this, whether in house moves, or in your business, my recommendation today is to try out:
a) asking for help
b) receiving it
c) letting go of something you’d normally do to another person
And see what happens!
