Little changes make big risks less daunting .

Monday, August 23, 2010

I did a thing today at work that took a great deal of courage- I laid a complaint against my rotten boss with the union. Perhaps that seems incongruous to some of you (BTW please don't reply if you are going to criticize unions etc- I am not interested)- hes been mistreating me on and off for over 3 years; but its been hard to garner the courage to stand up to him- I think that because I restarted this program that gave me the courage (amongst other things) to actually do it. I believe that if you change ONE thing positively in your life it changes other things (sort of synergy I guess) . At least thats my hope.

    It takes courage to report someone and I'm glad you did - everyone should be treated fairly.

good luck

  When we stand up for ourselves we send a message that we are worth being treated well (or at least fair). I hope it turns out well for you.

    I come from a union family. You are doing the right thing. Why should one have to stand up against a difficult situation alone when you have a community who will stand along side you? IMHO, It is the same principle as being active in the Spark community. There, as here, we can see what collective actions among people involved with the same issues can achieve.

Hard to believe a whole week has gone by.. even though i don't always look forward to my walks I know they are a better use of my leisure time than TV or video games.

Well another day another walk , anyone else get the "walker's blues" (aka blisters)- takes all the fun out of walking for me even though I still TRY to go (this is something I KNOW I HAVE to DO for myself!) . I amlooking forweard to the day I can start jogging if I want to .... not to mention walks in the park. I still want to get cycling before the snow flies (hopefully not till November).

Hi there
I cant shake the stupid thought of my old employer and their "Team T***s" attempt at UNION BUSTING and their pathetic " spark plug points" (sorry Spark Chris). I dont know why that popped into my head NOW I hadn't thought about that since 2003 ,when I got laid off- Thanks JERKS I quit a real good (albeit term) job to go to you. I guess these daily walks make me sure know how a HAMSTER feels~!!!
Seriously though, I am tired of being unfit and even more tired of people's nasty comments and attitude. I know I am also an emotional eater and I also know being diagnosed with Asthma didnt help either-why I am not sure - I think I started giving up on myself to some extent or another. I suppose what keeps me going is that I know I CANNOT give up. Comment if you like but please no flames.
I can use all the friends I can get.
