I did a thing ....
Thursday, January 21, 2021
Yesterday I did a very brave thing! I joined our company's wellness committee. This is a committee made up of a few very fit people who are looking for ways to make the company healthier overall. I was uncomfortable joining it. I didn't know if they'd even want me on the committee. What can I add to it, being well over 100 pounds overweight?
Of course, they welcomed me with open arms (a figure of speech since we're currently living in a touch-free world). I add a perspective that they really need - that of someone who is working towards a state of wellness. I can tell them when they're unintentionally being exclusive with initiatives that might not be for everyone. I can also continue to work on my own health goals and serve as inspiration to others that you don't have to already be fit to participate in the wellness initiatives.
I'm so glad I was brave enough to do this!
