Back to School with Tiddly!!!

Here is my make for the Back to School Challenge at Tiddly Inks!  I used the School Girl digi!  There she is, carrying her books in a high, heavy heap!!!  I remember those days!  I enjoy reading but mostly these days, it's just scripts-or blogs!  This little image is making me want to get back to some hardback books and take my time with it.

Have you entertained yourself with a good book lately?  If so, please let me know the title and author in the comments!  I'm reading The Art of Asking by Amanda Palmer.  It's about an artist who asked her fans for funding (before crowd funding was a thing) and they responded with "Yes and here's more!".  How cool is that?

After a performance this past week, I was carrying three huge bags back to my car and a nice young man asked if he could help.  For some reason, I don't know why, I said, "No thanks, I got it" and I clumsily carried everything out on my own.  Why? I don't know.  Accepting help would have made more sense but sometimes, thinking to ask or accept help is foreign to me.  That's something I need to work on.  Being open and accepting of help.

As many people are starting a new semester, a new school year, new classes,  I'll start a commitment to myself, to chill out and take a helping hand every once in a while.  We are in this together.  Life is a collaboration.  Giving others the opportunity to help us takes a different kind of strength.  A humble strength.

I'll challenge myself to ask for what I want more!  Even typing that made me nervous but it's out in the blogesphere so I'll be accountable!

Well, whatever kind of classes you are starting, whether in a large university or just a class of one involving self improvement, know that we are in this together.  Suffering in silence is no good.  Let it out and ask for help.  Unless you don't need any help.  In that case, ask for a double helping of help! lol

Thank You for stopping by!!!!

  1. Lovely card! The background is especially wonderful.

    I know what you mean about asking for help....I don't like to either....I dunno....I find it makes me look weak or sumthin'....but I'd never think a person was weak if they asked me for help. Yep, really doesn't make sense but there it is. :-)


I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts! TYVM <3
