You're Important Too!

A very dear friend always reminds me that “even on the airplane, they tell you to put your own mask on first.” There’s such importance in this action because, before you can assist someone else, you have to make sure you’re okay. You have to be in a position to be able to give someone the assistance needed based upon the strength you have & the position that you’re in! Wow. So many times, many of us forget this---myself included.

I’m one who would basically do anything for someone before I do something for myself. However, during this year I’ve learned the importance of the action of putting my own mask on first. This could be as simple as a day of rest to reading a good book to watching a good movie. The thing is, to take the time out for self as this is much needed.

There’s no action that should be taken without making sure we’re in the right place first. Do what you have to do for you (by no means I mean this in a selfish way, but don’t leave yourself out of the equation). Do you, life is way too short to forget about one of the most important people in your life---YOU!

Until next time.
