When it comes to asking questions, I’m your girl. I’ll never forget the day my now friend (she wasn’t my biggest fan at first) Summer told me that I asked way to many questions. If I remember correctly (I’m sure she is laughing her butt off right now reading this), she said something to the gist of “Why do you want to know? It has nothing to do with your job so don’t ask”. Ok, that sounds a little ruder when I write it out.
At that moment I took a long hard look at myself and who I wanted my new co-workers to see me as. The girl who asked too many questions? Or the girl who sucked at her job because she didn’t ask any? From that day forward I was going to keep asking questions and annoy anyone and everyone I had to if that meant I would learn and be good at my job.
However, the longer Summer and I worked together the closer we became as friends, and she soon realized that’s just who I am. Erica asks questions. Lot’s of questions. It’s how I learn, it’s how I grow as a person. It’s who I am.
Believe it or not, Summer was/is not the only person who has pointed this out to me. My sister and I actually joke about it often. And I’m ok with that. I’m ok with being the person who asks too many questions.
My point being is, it’s time for you to Own Your Tomorrow. It’s never too late to ask the hard questions or any questions at all. Don’t be afraid of what people might think of you.
If you’re not sure if your baby is teething or is just fussy. Ask another mom. If you want to know what color looks better on you, pink or blue? Ask your husband or mother. If you’re not sure how many inches 4.5 meters is, you better ask or that dress you’re about to make is going to be way too short. I’m sure you get where I’m going with this.
It’s never too late to ask those questions! Own your tomorrow and share your story with me. How will you be owning your tomorrow?
I can’t wait to see what questions have changed your life.
