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!

Starting the day on a positive note

As i have written previously at the moment i am at my peak mental health or feeling super awesome. I've been feeling pretty 'blahhh' and low and just not feeling so well, a little too many negative thoughts which i have let control me for a little too long. But this morning i woke up and told myself, enough is enough. I cant let negativity take over my life, nothing good comes from negativity. I can sit alone and feel negative and low and just want the days to be over or i can wake up with a smile on my face, with positive thoughts on my mind and be determined to make the day a positive one.
   The way you think and behave often determine how things will go, whether you will have an awful day or a positive one. And i choose positivity, there is absolutely no point in dwelling in the negative. You have one life and do you want to spend it wishing your life away? Hating yourself and hating life? That is no way to live life.... or it's not even living, just surviving. Because even if you may do things, the constant negativity wares at you and tears you down. It leaves you feeling tired and unmotivated to do things because you are just filled with negative thoughts and negativity.

So its time to increase my positivity levels, feel happier again!! And i am going to start my day with a walk with Daisy in the half morning sun and then get some energy into me before i continue with the rest of my day. A visit to the gym to lift heavy weights and to get rid of pent up irritation and then meeting some of my friends for coffee and lots of talking! A few of them are home from all their travelling, so it will be nice to catch up with them! And then i'll see how i feel for the rest of the day and what my plans are :)

Sometimes 5am thoughts arent so bad....  i gave myself a pep talk and reminded myself that positivity is key. No need to let myself sink lower and feel worse, that wont be good for anyone or anything.

Time to think positive about myself, my body and life in general! Also continuing with my positives of the day here on my blog :) Though i realised i forgot yesterdays positives' XD
