Put Your Oxygen Mask on Now!

October 25, 2010

Put your oxygen mask on now!

I am naturally a caretaker.  It is built into my DNA.  I think a lot of women are caretakers too.  I think its particular pronounced when you are a working mom.  You end up doing your job at work and more than your fair share at home.  My mind is wired to think of others long before I think of myself.  Taking care of others is a great thing to do.  But, unless you are a Buddhist with a mind trained to expect nothing in return, being a caretaker is sure to cause you to have feelings of not being cared for yourself.  If you are like me, you feel guilty when you take care of yourself. 

 I think it’s time to create a revolution and stop that line of thinking.  Sometimes we have to stop analyzing and just start doing.  The old airline analogy is a great one; you have to put on your oxygen mask yourself before you assist others.  What are you doing today to take care of yourself?  I am going to make sure I leave work by 4:00pm and go for a long walk in the woods.  I left my house at 6:30am and it’s reasonable to think I can leave at 4:00pm to take care of myself before I go home to take care of my kids. 

 If one of the things that you wish to do to take care of yourself is to drive a nicer, newer vehicle, please reach out to me.  I would be happy to offer you advice and counsel on buying a new car, whether you buy one from Key Hyundai or not.  I know that car buying can be a daunting experience.  I want to take that fear out of it for you.

 Remember, in order to help those around you, you need to help yourself.  Make sure you get outside today and enjoy this terrific Indian Summer New England day.  A few minutes of preventative care will provide hours of benefit. 

 My name is Jill Merriam, and I am a Dealer for the People.  My goal is to help people get into the nicer newer car of their dreams by demystifying the car buying experience.  To learn more information about Key Hyundai of Manchester or Key Hyundai of Milford, visit http://www.keycars.com
