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

Day 2: 5 things you're good at.

Second day of my challenge, and im so glad that so many joined in yesterday and i even read a few blog posts which is super fun :)
   Even if its difficult to think about positive things about yourself, its a good thing to be able to do. To see the goodness and positives inside of yourself. Because its easier to see negative things in yourself and positive things in others... but now its all positivity!! Get rid of that negativity, because we are ALL GREAT just the way we are. And we are good at different things!!

So, 5 things im good at!

1) Running, working out, being strong..... Yup, i had to mention these, im sorry :)

2) Being nice/supportive of other people.

3) Baking/cooking food. Generally im quite lazy when it comes to cooking food and would gladly eat brinner and brunch most days a week, but when i try im actually quite good at both baking and cooking. Where ive got this from, im not so sure as neither my mum or dad are so great at cooking ;);)

4) Kindness/selflessness.... i would say im good at kindness (can you even be good at this?) but i feel that some people lack this skill completely and dont know how to be kind. But i would consider myself kind and selfless most days... i think others would agree, but then again somedays my needs come first and well, i wouldnt do anything for anyone because im too tired! haha

5) Being positive.... as much as possible i would say im good at being positive!

6) Im good at laughing at the wrong times.... someone could say they are in an economic crisis and that would be the moment i would think of a random funny memory and laugh. *yes, i know, awful*. But also in class im good at just laughing or smiling randomly because i think of things!

7) Im good at eating... i have to mention this! Because eating is one of my talents :) If you cant finish your portion? Yup, ill eat it. :)


Who knows i could find so many things im good at, but i know there are lots more, it just takes some thinking!!

So even if it takes you 10 minutes, 30 minutes, 60 minutes or the whole day! Try to write down and/or comment atleast 5 things you are good at!!! :)

  2. Hmm okay my five things would be-
    1) protecting people who need more love or are shy
    2) encouraging peoples' dreams no matter how small or how big
    3) doing a task and not losing motivation
    4) being non judgmental of people and their decisions. I try the best I can and don't hold grudges or bring up peoples' past mistakes
    5) getting a good balance with my social life, school work and health.

    I'm quite good at writing, like stories and stuff. I think I have quite a good imagination.
    I'm good at art (or so my teacher says anyway haha)
    I am good at playing guitar and music
    I'm good with animals? Does that count haha?
    And I think that I'm a good friend.

    Thank you for doing this challenge, I think it's really great to see so many people commenting and joining in, and it actually does just make me feel much more positive.

    Have a lovely day!! :))

  10. Hmmm...
    1) I make really goo pancakes (at least in my opinion ;))
    2) Im good at stretching my back. Sound weird but my back is very flexible! It feels so good to bend backward as much as I can. Though I haven't done that in a while but I want to stretch more :)
    3) Im really good at understanding what people are saying (most of the time). I can see other peoples perspectives often and if theres confusion between two people I am capable of explaining to both of them what the other one is saying :)
    4) I think I'm pretty good at traveling. Ive traveled to several places, a few times a year usually and am goo at the transportation part. I knew what foods are best to take, some useful hacks, helpful things to take with me etc.
    5) Im good at making food look good :) like you've said before sometimes when food looks extra delicious it even tastes better!
    6) I am good at helping people and supporting them. I try to help people with their problems and try to do so as best as I can :)
