You have to ASK to GET.

"If you don't ask, you don't get." Mahatma Gandhi

In  other words, you have to ASK to GET.  I love going to concerts and I always love coming home with a setlist, a guitar pick, or a photo with the performer. Friends tell me "you're so lucky", and yes, I am lucky, but I ask.  That's right.  I ask for the pick, or the autograph, or the photo.  I'm also lucky that I have a boyfriend who will also ask.

A lot of us as children have been taught to stop asking for what we want.  We were told we wanted too much, didn't need it, could do without it, etc.  So we feel really guilty and ashamed to ask.  Well, I say it's time to ask for what you want.  What have you been wanting?  Ask for it!  What's the worst that could happen?  They may say no, or maybe, or tell you to be patient.  If the first person you ask says no, ask someone else.  We are so afraid of hearing the word NO, we forget that they just might say YES.

So, if there is something you've been wanting, whether it's an autograph, a foot rub, taken out to dinner, or a kiss.  Just just may get it.

One thing I know for sure is Gandhi was right.
"If you don't ask, you don't get."
