Here we stand on the verge of 2013. I weighed myself this moring and although I did gain 4 pounds over the fall, I stayed the same over Christmas.Ya hoo! 2012 threw me some surprising loops, but toward the end of it, I feel very positive about some of the events in my life
A few years back I encountered a bully who targeted me and what she couldn't find wrong with my ability, she made up and fabricated lies about my work. This experience lasted for at least a year and half and it took me a while to realize and name it as being bullied. This forced me to make adjustments to my future goals just to get away from the bully. Although I did report her behaviour to what I believed to be an appropriate person, I soon learned that some organizations seem to be either powerless to stop the bullying or are not prepared to deal appropriately with the bullying. It has taken me a few years to cope with my experience. But I sit here today, not thankful that I had this horrendous occurrence in my life, but because the healing journey has been an incredible learning and strengthening experience. I trust in God to bring me through little by little every day and have the tremendous support of family. I hope to use what I have learned to help others who are bullied and uncover appropriate, legal methods of coping with bullies in the workplace and academic setting.
I enter 2013 and better person. Taking a negative experience and turning it into a positive one takes fortitude and strength. I want to do some positive things for myself this year and one is discovering my journey with regards to my health and lifestyle habits such as my eating, exercising, and managing stress and anxiety. I will weigh myself each week and report on my journey. I want to lose 10 pounds by July 2013 while positively contributing to a balanced and healthy lifestyle. I invite anyone who is interested, to join me in this endeavour. All the best to us in 2013!!! Happy New Year!!
