The Cornerstone

Thursday, August 01, 2013

“The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone” Act 4:11;

I had an experience yesterday that brought this verse to my mind. I am not a religious person but I’ve been experiencing some career stress because I’ve been put in' employment exile'. I took a position and it was unpopular. I have been sent to the proverbial ‘employment siberia’. So I’ve recognized the ostracism and just tried to remain professional. On Wednesday, a situation arose and I had to ‘stand up for the company’ and defuse a situation. And I thought: the stone the builder rejected ….
Anyway, I find my strength within and I am thankful that I got up and went running in Wednesday morning. It felt good and I needed that satisfaction to draw on in this situation. I give a lot of credit to the tools of self belief and self- understanding that SparkPeople is helping me develop. The ability and confidence to speak up for yourself – to say no to food (because they offer it you don’t have to accept it) because it is not in your programme. What I am really learning is to identify my needs and goals and speak up for them. Sometime I chide myself ‘cos I say this is the height of narcissism (negative thought) but put another way it’s being assertive (positive thought).

If you happy and you know it

    Doing our jobs to the best of our ability and properly can be extremely demanding and many times the only benefit is the personal knowledge of the effort.
