It's safe to say many of us have experienced bullying in some way, shape or form.

It can be cyberbullying, workplace, family, school or peer pressure.

Many people, children, teenagers, and women have a difficult time overcoming the devastating effects of bullying. Tragically, some victims of bullying turn and become bullies themselves!

Workplace bullying, as defined by the Workplace Bullying Institute is, “the repeated, health-harming mistreatment of one or more persons (the targets) by one or more perpetrators.” It is abusive conduct, which is threatening, humiliating and intimidating, and includes work interference – sabotage – preventing work from being done or verbal abuse.

My guest initially tried to deal with workplace bullying by avoiding the individuals who targeted her. When she had issues with a co-worker, she retreated into her cubicle. However, when her work was sabotaged by misplacing reports and missed deadlines, she was forced to deal with the bullying directly. After all, her professional reputation was in jeopardy and she could not hide in her office hoping it would go away.

Tune in to hear how the plot twisted when Angeline dealt with the bullying and went on to become an agent of change. Today she is empowering Christian women to be positioned for power in the workplace. Equipping them with the tools and strategies that helped her heal and overcome the effects of workplace bullying. Whatever challenge you may be going through, it can change. When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change. For the resources mentioned in this episode, visit

You and I each have a purpose in life. We each have a race to run, based on that unique purpose. And while they stay stick to your lane, on this episode you'll discover why when all of us finish strong, everyone wins!

One dictionary defines Purpose as - The reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists.

At some point in life, most people wonder what is the reason for their existence. Have you ever asked yourself that question?

Now, while I don't have a one-size-fits-all solution for how someone can find their purpose, I believe having a vision that goes beyond you can help us answer that question. Because they say no man is an island, purpose will always involve someone else, in one way or the other.

I also believe living a life of purpose is not a one-time event, but an ongoing process, that can change as we grow during the journey of life. No one can actually reveal your purpose to you except your creator. People can help you find what is already in your heart as a seed. And others can help you nurture it unto fruitfulness.

Likewise, no one can live your purpose for you. Or do your press-ups for you. And just like runners in a race, everyone has their lane, and as you and I stick to our designated lanes, we can run with faith and patience until the day we reach the finishing line.

But what matters in life is not just than winning for ourselves. What matters in life is helping others to win as well, even if it means slowing down sometimes. Today's short story (hadithi in Kiswahili) illustrates the significance of support each other, even as we run as individuals.

Because we are connected to each other when all of us finish strong everybody wins!

Flying can be fun. Until we experience frightening turbulences that make us grip the seat handles and whisper a prayer. As I often say, life is like a journey, and can we both agree it's not always clear blue skies and smooth sailing?

But just like there are instructions on what to do in the event of danger on a flight, so too in life, there are things we can pro-actively do to be better prepared for the storms of life. I don't know about you, but personally, I've never actually had to put on an oxygen mask on a flight. Should it ever happen, it would be interesting to observe how many of us stay calm and how many freak out like we often tend to do in unexpected stressful situations.

Paying attention to the flight attendant during the safety instructions could be a deciding factor between panicking and freaking out or staying calm and helping others.

But the truth it's easy to tune out during monotonous safety instructions because "we know all that already." I've been guilty many a time...

And so it is with wellness. We "already know " eating healthy, exercising, hydrating, a positive mindset among others are beneficial for our well-being. But do we do these things or do we ignore what we know only to discover just how unprepared we are to manage stress when that crisis does come?

Not being the bearer of bad news here, but none of us is exempt from life's turbulences.

That's why wellness is not overrated when it comes to managing harmful stress. There are so many benefits, some of which I mentioned in a previous blog post. In this episode, you'll hear 5 simple tips that will boost your emotional, mental, emotional, and physical well-being.

Self-care is like putting on your oxygen mask first. This helps us be better prepared to handle the inevitable rough moments in life as well as help others around us.

Tune in and discover how these five simple, but effective self-care tips can help manage stress and improve your well-being.

  1. Add Fiber Daily
  2. Digital Detox
  3. Practise Mindfulness
  4. Process Tough Emotions
  5. Do Kind Deeds
