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

Happiness can be found in the smallest of things

This morning i was reminded of the fact that happiness comes doing what you enjoy. Being kind to yourself and listening to your body.

I started my morning with a walk in the forest while listening to a podcast and it reminded me of just how much i love being out in nature and love my morning walks. It brings me a sense of peace and happiness, but i havent had the time or motivtion for morning walks so often recently or i have just said "it's too cold". But whenever i do go for morning walks i am reminded of just how much i love them... or evening walks for that matter, though i rarely do any exercise in the evenings, haha. Thats my "relaxing" time.

Anyway, tehn when i got back to the apartment i made myself breakfast with some of the remaining fruit (though had bought more berries and another caramel protein pudding!). While eating my breakfast i felt this sort of happiness..... i felt happy over my nice morning. Doing two things i love, morning walk and then a delicious and nutritious breakfast. It just feels like nothing can go wrong today because i have had this awesome start to my day. But also how happiness can come from just these small things. Such as for me, i feel happy when i make my food look good. That is something i enjoy and gives me a sense of happiness, though of course not all meals are made to look good, infact 80% of my meals are just thrown on the plate and then devoured.  But when i make the food look good its like it tastes 10 times better.

Though this is just my opinion, some would say its just a time waster and back in 2013 i remember i wrote a post saying how i didnt care how my food looked because i just ate it, but now my opinion has changed on that. Though as long as it doesnt become something obsessive then its fine, according to me :)




^^The truth, hahaha XD


Now the rest of my Friday will be spent studying - not so surprising really XD
