I'm a busy mum of three and I come last. Rarely, if ever, do I put myself first and on the rare occasions that I do, I apologise for it!!! What the hell is with that?
Have you ever listened to the safety announcement on a plane? (Ha, stupid question) they will tell you that in a situation when the oxygen masks come down, you should put on your own before helping others, including your children.
Wait, what? Put myself before others? This does not compute.
But when you think about it, it makes total sense, it's not selfishness or my needs are greater. It's as simple as how can I help others when I am not operating to my full potential?
Now apply this to all part of your lives.
If you are tired, sleep. If you feel like your life is meaningless, make it count. Put yourself first and hopefully not only you will benefit, but others around you will too, as a by-product of you putting on your oxygen mask.
This year I intend to take some deep breaths from my oxygen mask, it's not selfish, it is the right thing to do.
How about you?
Will you be taking some deep breaths?
Let me know.
