People want to help you.
A reminder to be willing to accept it.
I shop for the majority of my veggies on a Saturday morning, at the local market.
It could take me 10 minutes to get everything I need. But I usually spend over an hour at the market each Saturday morning because I chat to so many beautiful people.
I missed the egg lady last week, so I saw her first, and paid for a tray of eggs. But said I’d come back to get them, because I didn’t want to walk around the rest of the market with eggs (this girl knows herself well enough to know that’s asking for disaster). So I made the rounds, stocked up on heaps of local berries 🍓, avocado 🥑, corn 🌽 (pictured 😍), sausages, peas & beans, all my favourites.
I made a quick trip back to the van to unload my arms before I went to get the eggs.
And had a chat with the neighbours selling (my now favourite) corn next door to the egg lady, and I was celebrating that I hadn’t forgotten to get them. I mentioned my trip back to the van, and without missing a beat, the guy says, “we have a spare pair of arms & legs, he could carried it for you”. I taught the guys son for a number of years and the little gentleman (now off to college) says “yeah I would’ve carried it for you Mrs Anderson” (😂😂 don’t have the heart to correct him that I didn’t change my name lol)
And it was a powerful reminder for me, that people do want to help you (me). No one wants to see you (me) struggle. So don’t be afraid to ask, or to say yes when they offer.
Looking after each other is what makes the world go ‘round. Especially if you’re someone who does a lot of looking after others, you need to receive as well.
