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!

Monday and filled with positivity and happiness

Good morning!!
It is only 8.30am here and i am filled with energy, happiness and positivity!! Almost like i have too much so i just need to share it, haha. The complete opposite from yesterday, but that was yesterday and today is today! (Trying to be poetic)

I started my morning with a short run - my mind said yes to running, my legs said no XD But during my run i just felt so happy and free, filled with happiness and positivity. The sun was shining, i saw hares, deers and horses (Of course it's not uncommon to see those animals here in Sweden!), but it made me feel like one with nature. And i just stopped for a while and smiled with the sun shining down on me. It is a wonderful feeling to feel like this!

My mum likes to say, You can take the girl out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the girl. 
This is rather true. I love nature and being in the forest and by the water. I love being outside and being active and enjoying the freedom which the country gives. But i do also love being in the city and being close to school or work or wherever i need to go. There are pro's and con's to both the city and the country, but i guess trying to have a mix of both is the best and being able to go out and run in the forest/nature is a great way to destress and feel closer to nature again :)

After my run it was time for breakfast and now some blogging and youtube before i decide what i want to do for the rest of my day.

I have cravings to bake.... raw snickers cake, donuts, oreo buns, raw caramel slices as well as make lots of falafels, chickpea burgers, hasselback potatoes, potatoe burgers etc 
So who knows, i might spend the day in the kitchen and prepare lots of meals for the week so i dont have to cook each time i get hungry XD

I hope you all have a lovely day and dont forget to start and/or end your day with some positive thoughts!! It is only 8.30am, but i have already experienced 5 different positive things and had many positive thoughts and it is a lovely feeling :)



(yesterday evening - my boyfriend was so tired so he went to bed at 8pm, so  i sat and watched documentaries and ate watermelon until i finally felt tired!)

  2. Great start to the day, and the new week! I occasionaly see deer when I am out walking in the mornings, its a lovely sight, especially when you can stand still and just watch them before they know you`re there and move off. And I see foxes as well from time to time. It never ceases to amaze me that I live so close to these animals, I love it.
    Hope your baking is successful - I made chocolate brownies last week, the first baking I have done for ages, and they went so fast I wish I had made more! I made a mental note to do more baking!
    Have a great day and a good week - how did your job interview go?

  3. Lovely start to your day! That, my friend, was a spiritual connection you felt. It's the stuff of life, the stuff of true health :) I love those moments of life when you just feel aligned with all the good in the world. Definitely a feeling worth pursuing.
