Are you a care-giver for someone? Mother, Father, grandparent, sibling, or even an animal foster parent? You are AWESOME, don’t forget that. The problem is most of us spend so much time taking care of our loved ones that we don’t take enough time for ourselves! GUESS WHAT!?!?!? If you don’t take care of yourself first you WON’T be your best self to care for your loved ones! I know this first hand. I brought my mother home from a nursing home, where she was dying, five years ago. She was only 61 years old with health issues that put her in the hospital on a ventilator. For the first couple of years she lived with us she was my primary focus. My business and my health suffered greatly because she meant so much to me I always put her first. Have you ever taken a flight when the flight attendant skipped telling everyone on the plane “in case of an emergency put your oxygen mask on FIRST, then help others around you”? This is a LIFE lesson we all need. Take care of yourself first! Make time to exercise, make time to eat right, and make time to build and maintain important relationships in your life! Remember you ARE awesome and YOU come first!
