I was talking with a friend this morning and was reminded of a principle that I FOUGHT for a long time, but eventually EMBRACED.  

>>>> Putting on my personal oxygen mask FIRST.  

I really want to make a difference in the world. I don’t know what it is, but I think it has to do with being in a place of darkness for so long and climbing out…… and just knowing with every fiber of my being that OTHERS ARE STILL WHERE I WAS, and I MUST show them how to pull out! It’s not a “would be nice” thing for me, it’s a MUST DO.  

Yes, I am highly passionate about what I do as a Beachbody coach because I see people’s lives CHANGE!! Everyday I wake up with a sense of urgency knowing I have something SIGNIFICANT to do, no time to waste.  

< But >, in order to help other people I have learned I MUST take care of myself first.  

When you fly on an airplane you’re reminded of this principle. “In the case of emergencies, please put on your own oxygen mask FIRST before assisting other people.” 

Isn’t that interesting? In a LIFE or DEATH situation, even where kids are involved, we are told the WAY TO SURVIVE that experience of a plane crash is to put on our life mask FIRST.  

Why would our daily life be any different?  

So HOW?? How do you put on your life mask and take care of yourself daily so you can be in that place of helping others? I think there are MANY things you can do to give you a mental BOOST. But I narrowed down my TOP SIX tips that will help you put on your own personal oxygen mask. {hint… this photo has shows two of my tips. ;)}

Because I need to write A NOVEL posts, this one I’ll save for my next blog post!
