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!

Life may not always turn out the way you had expected, but positivity can always be found

Good morning :)

Wednesday morning here in Sweden and i'm sitting eating breakfast and blogging. Today my boyfriend is free from work so i am going to spend the day with him and then this evening i am going out to dinner with my boyfriend and his parents. Hopefully a  good day, but i believe that alot is mindset as well. Because sometimes even the days that would be expected to be the best, to be awesome, but if you're feeling low, dark, moody, angry... then the day turns out awful anyway. Even if you are with people you enjoy being around, or eating delicious food or doing something you love. But then days which might not seem so fun but turn out to be awesome because you have decided to make the best of the day, see the positives and be positive.

I believe that mindset controls alot, and its important to have your mind as your best friend. Not let your mind control you and turn everything into awfuls and negatives. Of course it is easier said than done, but it's important to be positive in your own life. Make the best of any situation.

I find the mind very fascinating and do believe in the mind/mindset and how it affects us so strongly. Though of course, its not just "think positive" and suddenly everything is perfect and life is a bunch of roses and unicorns. But i think being an optimist in your own life is important, not just focusing on the negatives because suddenly all you will see is the shades of black and grey in your own life, and in the world in general. But if you decide to think more positive, it is like you see more colour in life and your own life. Even if at times life is still seen in shades of black and grey, it is easier to see the positives and live life more positively!!  Just my opinion anyway, and i choose to always see the positives and be as positive as possible. No matter what state i am in, i have grown up always being told to be positive, focus on the positives and so that is what i do and it works for me. Mostly, i mean... life isnt always easy, but it is easier, because i know if i didnt think positvely i would have given up a long time ago. I would have ended my life by this stage but because i have had some type of positive thought and hope it has kept me going, knowing that things can and will get better. Even if i've only believed it to 1%, that 1% was what kept me going. It works for me anyway :)

Now going to continue drinking coffee, schedule a few posts and then spend time with my boyfriend :) (The positive thing about my boyfriend knowing about my blog, he understands when i say that i am going to blog and lets me have the space to just sit and write, and i love it!)
