Life without Anorexia

My motto is
'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'

My life at the moment is completely different to how it once was. I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia and depression as well as struggling with self harm and overexercising. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
And since 2012 i have been declared healthy from my eating disorder.

I have been blogging for 7 years, and my whole journey is written in my posts. I now represent healthy and happiness. I want to show anyone struggling that it is possible to recover, no matter how hard it may seem.

I now blog about recovery, my life, veganism and positivity!

Talk back Tuesday - By Little Misadventures

Yes i know its Wednesday.... but i found this post by Kendel and i loved it!!! First off with her words about blogging - my exact thoughts and i couldnt put it better. Hence why i decided to repost her post :)
  But also i love her idea about Talk Back Tuesday... where you can ask me to discuss a certain topic, and then even in the comment section you guys can comment and i can comment back... like a discussion.
 Of course, there are some topics i will refrain from posting as i feeel they are too big matters to talk about on a blog and so many different opinions. But im sure there are some topics you want to know my opinion about :)

So every Tuesday i want to join in on this feature!

Below is a perfect post from Kendels blog: SOURCE

"Here’s the thing about blogging: it goes in cycles.
Some days you’ll be incredibly motivated and end up writing post after post to schedule for your blog. Those days are great. Cherish those days because-for me-they can few and far between. Some days I can see something on the internet or hear something at uni and it’ll start a chain reaction of I should write about this or that or maybe that would be cool… Those are the days I love the most. Then come the dreaded other days. These are the days that the blank page taunts you, the words just don’t flow, and your ‘brilliant idea’ has been done in a million different ways. Everything just seems so worn out.
So, what are you to do? Well, I’ll tell you what you do:
  1. Search internet for ‘exciting’ blog content. Nada.
  2. Think: Oh, I can write about something that happened in my day! I am a lifestyle/personal blogger after all. Hit a brick wall.
  3. Drink coffee.
  4. Nada.
  5. Remember that it’s Tuesday and you usually post about your favourite songs on this day.
  6. Search Spotify for something good. Nada.
  7. Think: Screw it, I’m going to come up with a new feature!
  8. Search the internet for inspiration. Eh. It’s late at night (I’m a nana, remember?) and stop.
  9. Holy smokes: Talk Back Tuesdays.
  10. Come up with a great way to use this as a feature.
  11. Decide that you can’t part with your love of music and move Tuesday Tunes to Thursday.
  12. Revert back to number ten.
  13. Make this bullet point list.
As you can see, (my) life as a blogger is quite complex. We do a lot more than just throw some words together and hit the publish button. The content that I publish on this site means a lot to me, and I don’t take it lightly. Even though I do just ramble about my life. There are piles upon piles of posts sitting in the ‘drafts’ folder, simply because it isn’t ‘the right time’ or the ‘right forum’ to publish those thoughts.
It does, however, feel like it’s the right time to come up with a new feature. This is something I have decided to name Talk-Back Tuesday.The idea is that I (or you) pick a topic, which I then write about, and we discuss the content. It sounds pretty simple, right? This is going to be a ‘no holds barred’ kind of feature. I can talk about whatever I want, no matter how gory it is. "
