Put your oxygen mask on first
Whenever I travel, I hear, as part of the opening instructions on an airplane, “If traveling next to children, put on your oxygen mask first.” The reason they say this is because if there is an emergency and the oxygen masks come down, if you stop to put it on a child first, the child may move around. The result can be that the child doesn’t get the oxygen mask on, and neither does the adult, and that is a very dangerous and perhaps fatal situation.
Those airline instructions are important in everyday life too. If you don’t take care of yourself, your energy can be zapped, and you won’t be able to take care of children. You are very important in the lives of children. Be sure and take time to take care of yourself. That is how you put your own oxygen mask on.
Have a great day and week-end. You are a difference maker.
