I'm thankful that I've learnt how important it was to communicate my desires, ideas and needs. If you don't ask for something or suggest something, you'd never know if it was possible to get it or have it happen. Hearing an occasional "no" is nothing compared to an opportunity that might as well change your life if you just go for it. Plus, other people are really not supposed to read your mind at all times... Even I would only do so sparingly... Oh yes, I can read a thought or two if I absolutely have to, ha!..
