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!

Spending the weekend at an island - getting away from routines and habits

Good morning :)

Its Saturday morning here in Sweden and i am currently trying to pack my bags, eat breakfast and type this post. I decided to follow with out to the island where my step father's dad lives and going to spend a few days there. I wasn't so sure if i wanted to follow with or not, but then i thought... what am i going to do otherwise? It's going to be great weather all weekend and my boyfriend is working, so i would end up just wasting the days and the weekend and that isn't so fun. But it's nice to spend some time at the island as well, to relax in another way, not feel pressured to be somewhere at a certain time or feel like i have 101 things to do because out there, there isn't much to do. Go for walks, runs, pick berries,sit in the sun, read a book, paint, colour etc etc I am going to enjoy my time there!!

But first i need to pack.... i am not good at packing. 2 days away and i still manage to have 2 bags with me. Anything more than 2 days away and i am garanteed to have 3 or more bags.... i just don't know how to pack smart. Though because i always pack with me running clothes and shoes that takes alot of space as i need to pack enough running clothes as well as having extra incase it rains or is bad weather, so then suddenly i have a big filled with just work out clothes!! And then there is a bag filled with all my other clothes as well as all the other necessities which take so much more space than necessary, and then suddenly you remember you need to pack your computer, chargers, colouring pens etc etc hahahha

There should be internet access so i will still be somewhat active online - mostly because i enjoy it and if i want to, then i don't see why i shouldnt post or blog. But it wont be a priority either, only when i have time or when i want to.... whether that means 3 posts in the course of  2 hours or 7 posts in a day or not posts at all... depends on what we do and how i feel :)

Also thank you all for being so kind and positive on my previous post :) Means alot that i know i can write how i am feeling and when i feeling less positive and know that people understand and wont see less of me. Let's all try to focus on changing our negative thoughts to positive ones, make a change in your life, get away from your routines and habits, spend time with friends and family.... all those things can help you to feel a little better. But of course, the hardwork has to come from you... continuous changes and positivity, talking to someone as well can be great!! Each day you smile and laugh is one day closer to happiness! Even if you have to fake that smile or laugh.... fake it till you make it!

I hope you all have a lovely weekend!!
