Today on the Crafting my Life Vlog, I’m sharing a story about high heel shoes, and putting things out there.
I Need Help With High Heels
I have a love-hate relationship with high heel shoes. I love the way they look, I hate the way they feel. The result is that I rarely wear them. Looking ahead to my husband’s company Christmas party later this month, I realized that I didn’t have any high heel party shoes to wear with my fancy new dress. But I didn’t want to repeat my pattern of buying shoes that I only wear once, for about 45 minutes, before ripping them from my feet in agony. So I put it out there, and asked people on my personal blog for high heel help.
Put it Out There, See What Comes Back
When you put it out there, and ask for help, it has a way of showing up. The truth is that many of us want to help each other. We want to use our hard-fought knowledge to someone else’s benefit. But we don’t know how to help. When someone asks, it takes out the guesswork, and lets us know that our assistance will be welcomed. This is true whether you need tips for choosing and wearing high heel shoes, or you want to learn how to make your own cheese, or you’re looking for a new accountant. By putting it out there, you’re seriously increasing your odds that help will come your way.
A Vlog About Shoes and Putting it Out There
Today on the vlog, I talk about what happened when I issued my call for help with high heels. It came – and not always from the place that I expected it to. I heeded the advice that came my way, and bought a pair of shoes. If you could use a little bit of help yourself, take a couple of minutes to watch the vlog and then get ready to put your own call out there:
