Body Love & Food Freedom!
What would you say to your BODY or MIND—if you could tell them ANYTHING? Today, I’d say this: I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!
Once I discharged from treatment, I was MORE free than EVER. Prayers from the past 15 years finally began to come to life, and while life was not rainbows and butterflies, the voice of ED NO LONGER dominated my mind. I began to find a “new way” of doing things, including new ways to workout, a brand new healthy relationship with food, new friendships and rekindling my love for creativity and writing. At the same time, one of the BIGGEST struggles of recovery has been the post-recovery recovery: After spending 15 years of my life abusing, neglecting and malnourishing, it’s been a “repair process,” to say the least. From osteoporosis to hormone imbalances, loss of my period, chronic gut issues (constipation, SIBO) and organ and muscle repair, my body is FAR from “perfect,” (at least by the world’s standards). Nevertheless, if there’s ONE thing I’ve learned from ALL the years spent hating on my body, it is this: Energy attracts energy. The MORE negative energy you feed your body, the MORE negative you feel about your body and the MORE your own health reflects that. Today and every day forward, I CHOOSE to treat my body with kindness, compassion, patience and love. Even though “it” may not be 100% where I want it to be, my MIND, my HEART and my SOUL are on fire to not only live out my purpose (not dependent on my physical attractiveness) and to help others live out their purpose and heal their bodies too!
