Your life is all about YOU…
Now I know that can sound a little selfish, or even a lot; but do you remember
the well-worn cliché… ‘take care of yourself first or you will have nothing
left to give to others'… and I am also reminded of an analogy that goes like
‘Imagine yourself in an aeroplane and you are responsible for two young
children when suddenly the plane gets into trouble and the oxygen masks
I have asked this question many times; ‘do you, put the mask on the children
first?’… and the more common answer by far is, ‘of course!’
But think of it this way… if others are dependent on you, do you not think it
more responsible to ensure you are ok first so that you can then help them?
So, in this analogy certainly you should fit your mask first.
You see all of life should fit this analogy... we so often go through life caring
about everyone and everything but ourselves… we end up putting ourselves
last, and then wonder why we are so exhausted physically and emotionally.
We all have our own body and our own mind and it is our responsibility to
take the best care of them; and respect them.
How many times have you heard someone say, and it may have been
you… ‘Yes, of course I’m taking care of myself. Look I’ve just bought this
wonderful pair of shoes!’ or ‘Yes, I’ve just booked a holiday so I can get away
from it all for a week!’
These are not wrong, they are simply another part of YOU looking after
YOU. But in ‘It’s All About YOU' I will talk about embracing your consciousness
your perceptions… and really looking after that most important part of
you. After all… you are the only person who can do that!
As we learn to look after ourselves more, we become better people; and
when we are in touch with our own feelings, we can then reach out more
effectively to others and show them our love and understanding.
So, there it is, of course it is not selfish to think about yourself first at all, in
fact it is absolutely the opposite. If we fill our own emotional tanks with self respect
and loving care, we have much more to give to our loved ones.
In ‘It’s all about YOU’, we will look at the basics of working within the life
you have so you can become exactly that, the very best YOU.
We will be looking at how your life reveals itself to you, for it is only a mirror
of your perceptions. Attempting to change your world by force is as fruitless
as smashing the mirror in the hope it will change the reflection of what you
see. We must leave the mirror alone and change our feelings and ideas of
who we really are.
It will be your prescription to a more fulfilling life, for you and for everyone
with whom you have a connection.
