“Put on your oxygen mask first…” I understand that I am graced by God to care for the husband, children, family, business and ministry that He has given me. However, there are times when I get completely overwhelmed, shut down and am no good to anyone! How can I (and you if you have the same issue) keep this from happening:
- Include myself and my needs to my daily “to do list” and prioritize accordingly
- Say “no”when I know I can’t meet a commitment. If something changes and I can support, show up, and participate then what a great surprise! Not being able to fulfill a commitment feels terrible.
- Don’t try to be superwoman. A good leader knows how to delegate and empower her team. I won’t assume that people know how to help me. I will tell them what I need them to do and Be specific!!!
These are some things I’m implementing TODAY! God is blessing me and opening doors, I must be prepared for even more responsibility.
