“Ask and you shall receive”

This is a phrase I’ve been hearing as long as I can remember, but it is so true! A lot of times people are afraid to ask for something they want but if I’ve learned 1 thing in my short time as a blogger it’s that you’ve got to put your {Big Girl Pants} on and ask for what you want. Whether that’s help with formatting, learning how to optimize social networking platforms, or reaching out to a product or company you’d like to work with, if you don’t ask your not going to get it {well, you might but that could take weeks or even months and frankly nobody has time for that}. There’s no more being too shy or too stubborn or too independent to ask for help, nope it’s time to ask questions, take notes, and then turn around implement whatever you learned into your own life {or business}.

“Ask and you shall receive.”

I have a good friend, I mean a really good friend. The kind who doesn’t say {I told you so} when you get hurt doing something they told you not to; the kind who genuinely cares for every single human being on this planet; the kind that you can always count on, even at 3am.  Anyways, it’s all because of this certain friend of mine that I’m sharing this recipe with you today. They {asked} me the other week if I had a good recipe for some energy balls + of course I said I did, but was shocked when I realized that none were on the blog yet! With how easy, delicious, and nutritious energy balls are I have no idea how I have not shared a single recipe with you yet!

But that is no more, because my inaugural {Energy Ball} post is here! And within just a few days of their request, a follower is receiving what they asked for {see what I mean about asking?} So let’s all take a minute to say {Thank You} to one of my best friends for coming up with the idea for todays post + then head to the kitchen because you’re going to want to whip these babies up ASAP, trust me!
