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!

Doing what makes you happy and taking control over your own life

Finding what makes you happy and motivated in life.

One of the things I have learnt in life is that your thoughts have alot of power over how you experience different situations as well as your happiness in life. If you are constantly thinking negative it's like you automatically attract negative situations but also that everything just seems worse when you can't seem to see anything positive or any solution to problems. Not to mention that if you always think "I can't do it" then the truth is you most likely can't.

In life you need to believe in yourself and believe that you have the power to change situations and control your life. You have to believe that nothing is impossible and that you can reach goals no matter how far off they may seem.

Of course getting too caught up in the future isn't always good, it's important to be in the present and make the best of current life.

Another thing I have learnt is that you can't sit around and wait for things to get better or sit around and wait for opportunities or happiness.  But instead you need to create them. You need to want to be happy and to do things that make you happy.  You need to focus on what is best for you and what you can do in your daily life to feel happy... whether that means going for a morning walk or having an hour in the morning to just sit and read and drink tea or whether that means getting to have evenings on your own or meeting friends or whatever it may be. You need to find what makes you happy and also to find what gives life meaning!!!! Remember that this your life and you are in control!!! You need to make the best or your life and focus on YOUR wellbeing and happiness.

I know what makes me happy and that is what makes life worth it. I know what I want to do, I know how to cheer myself up, I enjoy living life and that makes life worth it!

Take control over your life and don't be scared to make choices that are best for you and your well being!!!
