Your Oxygen Mask: one of the 9 Weapons of Hope™

Taking care of yourself is not selfish

In fact, I could argue that it’s selfish NOT to take care of yourself. If you burn out or self-destruct, what go will you be for other people? We need to be the best version of ourselves because we were put on this earth to be and because it’s the only way we can serve others.

A 9 Weapons of Hope™ Course

The purpose of this Weapon of Hope™ is to bring attention to self-care, and the oxygen mask is a great example. If you needed your mask on an airplane, you are instructed to put it on your own face before assisting others.

This course is especially for those who are out of balance, caring for others. Permit yourself to matter. Place your name at the top of the priority list. You have one shot at this journey called “life,” so take care of the one and only You!

 Some of us concern ourselves with the welfare of others at the expense of ourselves. This only results in mental fatigue or physical and emotional exhaustion. Often, serious health issues surface. Some people head into full-on self-destruction mode, trying to save another person.

Others burn themselves out in an attempt to please everybody, which is impossible. The moment you please one person, you will displease the next. In all of the flurry to please everyone else, you will find yourself wiped out.

 No matter how out of balance you feel, there is help and hope.
