“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
