Life without Anorexia

My motto is
'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'

I am a generally happy girl who loves running, going to the gym and eating food!! Though my life has been very different.
I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia & purging tendencies & over exercising. I was depressed and self harmed. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
After alot of struggles, lots of ups and downs, suicide attempts, tears, anxiety, panic and never thinking i would be healthy.
I am now declared healthy from anorexia nervosia.

I have been blogging for 4 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 am happy and healthy and living my life. Going to school, meeting friends and trying to find myself in this world.

I write about my daily life, but also try to write posts about how it was when i was sick, advice and tips.
I am open and friendly, so dont be scared about writing a post or sending me an email at:

If the whole world was blind, who would you impress?

Yesterday I began thinking about the quote, If the whole world was blind who would you impress?

So for a moment, don't focus on your body.  Instead focus on YOU. Who are you? What are you good at? What are your strengths? What personality or character traits can you maybe improve on? What about yourself do you like (appearance not included )

Who are you without your body. Because your body does not define you. You are more than your body. You are your brain, your personality, your interests, your hobbies. People may see your body first but inevitably you are judged by your character and personality.

So now.... say 5 things you like about yourself non appearance based. 2 things you could improve on and 2 things you are good at.

For me....
1) I am good at listening
2)I am good at giving advice
3) I am non judgemental
4) I am patient and understanding
5) I am somewhat intelligent

2 things I could improve on:
1) I am quote sarcastic
2) I'm not so great at answering the phone or messages

2 things I am good at;

1) giving advice
2) learning quickly

Take time and think about YOU,your personality, your character... you are not just your body. Your body is the "machine" that gets YOU from place to place. You can fix your outsides all you want but sometimes all you need to do is fix your insides and change your mindset.
