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!

If you have any questions leave them in the comment section as i am much quicker at answering there, otherwise you can always send an email: lifewithoutanorexia@hotmail.com

The good things about autumn/winter

My previous post, stating that it was soon winter and the coldness and darkness was creeping in sparked some of those 'oh-my-gosh, i-hate-winter' dread in some. So i decided instead, for both my sake and yours to state some of the positives about autumn and winter.
  I am a summer girl, i love everything about the bright days from early to late. I love going walking in shorts and a top, i love the warmth and just lying outside tanning or running in the sun. And winter is the complete opposite of those things, however that doesn't mean that winter doesn't have its charm either. Because it does.. all the seasons have good and bad things, some seasons have more of the bad stuff (in my eyes) and other seasons have more of the good stuff (in my eyes). Then there are some people who dont agree with me at all and hate everything about summer, but love winter!

(List is just in a random order!)

Cozy days/afternoons/nights inside (preferably in bed or on the sofa with a blanket and cup of tea)
Movie marathons
Walks in the forest with the yellowing and browning of leaves
Hot chocolate with marshmallows and cheese sandwiches
Ice skating/Skiing
Snowball fights
Warm winter clothes
Warm winter boots
Fireplace
Warm socks and jumpers
Pumpkin and cinnamon
Baking
Freshly baked buns 
Saffron (commonly used during Christmas time here in Sweden)
Christmas
Presents
Family time
Lots and lots of tea

And not to forget my birthday as well :) Thats one of the positve things about winter for me anyway... not sure how i will feel in 10 years time though :)

Please share YOUR positives about winter and autumn, to get us all feeling a little more excited about the change in seasons :)
   Some countries i guess the changing in seasons isnt as drastic, it gets cold but not that much colder etc but here are some things why you can love winter/autumn :)

    Hot tea and apple pie after a long walk
    To be wrapped in a soft blanket with a book
    fog from the breath
    skarves, gloves, thick socks, big comfortable shoes, hot duvet, the winter smell and spices.....

    It is to comforting !!!! Looking at the snowflakes falling at dusk or daws, candle lights....

    Cuddling with my doggie. Not that I don't do it all year round. It's just in winter it's extra special because she is so warm. It's like having a hot water bottle she's so warm!
    Hot chocolate with marshmallows and tea
    Sweaters, boots, socks, mittens, scarfs
    Snowflakes and snow
    Building a snowman
    Going down a hill in the winter
    Jumping in puddles
    Thanksgiving (though that's not for everyone)
    Everything that comes with the holiday season:presents, candy canes, Christmas tree, giving presents, the holiday spirit and so much more!
    Jumping in piles of leaves!
    You can get some great pictures around those colorful leaves
    I love fall and winter. They are my favorite seasons!! Summer I like but not as much. I prefer colder weather:) but like you said it's different for everyone :)
