My ongoing and ever evolving story of recovery from an eating disorder and depression. Constantly learning, changing and growing. It can be a beautiful process and is worth the hard work. Seeking healthy relationship with food and exercise. To run without the mental torture and eat without a calorie calculator in my head. To dream and aspire because there is so much more life available without an ED. To look in mirrors. To enjoy food. To discover why this happened and challenge every false assumption. To re-learn who I am. To quit dieting and love health, nutrition and fitness with COMPASSION for myself. For this to be worth something. To help others. For this to be the making of me, not what tears me down.
Merry Christmas from Harefield library! Lol! This is the design for our Christmas card we will send out to other branches and staff. Essentially, we are big kids! Love it! #christmas #lovechristmas #harefieldlibrary #fun #festive #funny #lovemyjob
Decorating my 2014 diary :) This quote and picture felt right for the front. I know that things can’t magically change but maybe every day I can be a little bit stronger or think about things in a different way. I am also determined to be organised and keep on top of things. This has helped when life has got chaotic. Starting treatment has been tough. But moving in the right direction. #diary #2014 #organisation #stationary #quote #eleanorroosevelt #affirmation #positive #hopeful #determined #recovery #change #smallsteps #edrecovery #ednos
Make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you’ll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you’ll find that you have more of it.
Saw this and it resonated with me. Like for example, If I stop hating my legs for a minute I could actually be grateful for their strength and how they never fail to help me run far and fast. #bodyimage #recovery #edrecovery #recoveryispossible #selflove #selfesteem #ednos #running #selfacceptance
