"Parents, Secure Your Mask First"

This Sparked Me!

If you have flown on an airplane, you have heard the, "Parents, secure your mask, first." You have to start fixing yourself, before you can help others. We try to help and fix the lives of family, friends, and strangers. We are no good to others, if we too, are broken. emoticon

We must find our center, focus, and mission. Then we can help others to do the same. You never know how hard it is to change and persevere if you have never done it yourself. Everyone has something they can work on! emoticon

    This is one of the hardest things to do in life. I got really sick after the birth of my second child. I was trying so hard to be the "perfect" mom, that I stopped taking care of myself. I should say that I didn't even know how to take care of myself. The past few years, I've been beginning to learn.
