14th January - Resourceful

14th January - Resourceful 

I am resourceful in helping my inner child.

Children enjoy both receiving and giving help.  A young child will ask anyone - a parent, a stranger, the governor of the state - to help them fasten a difficult zipper or buckle.  A young child will also eagerly offer to help a parent wash the dishes.

While growing up, I received mixed message from my parents, "You can ask for help but don't disturb me".  I felt shame for having need and I learned that there were strings attached for any assistance given to me.  As a result, I learned to silence my requests for help.

Today I welcome the requests of my inner child.  I respond with attentiveness and resourcefulness.  I am able to ask for help when I need it and I respond to others' needs out of free choice rather than guilt.  As my ability to give and receive becomes healthier, I am able to attend to my inner child.
