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!

Wednesday happiness and thoughts
Its 3pm, the rain is pouring down and its grey and cold outside. But i am sitting inside with a cup of tea, wrapped in a blanket and just feeling happy.
Do you ever get those moments in life where you just feel happy, like a rush of happy feelings (for no explained reason) and you just sort of sit with a smile on your face. That is me at the moment.
Usually weather like this makes me feel sad, low on energy and unmotivated but not today!
Today i am feeling happy and despite it still being rather early i have had a productive day. First up a workout at the gym, my first time back in a few days due to spending the weekend with my family and then lots of school work on Monday and Tuesday. And after my gym session it was lectures for 4 hours before finally taking the bus home, making lunch and spending the next while studying... which i will continue to do once i've written this post! And then my plans for the evening are just to have a mini spa session and watch a movie before an early nights sleep hopefully!
Nothing spectacular about my day, but just doing my favourite things. Going to the gym, going to school and learning new things and topics that interest me, talking with friends and hopefully a christmas inspired breakfast together next week, and then being able to come home and make my favourite food and have an apartment to myself and just feel all grown up!
I am going to miss living on my own so much once i move out. Its a great learning experience and a way to grow and adapt to live with others - as well as it being cheaper when you share the rent, but at the same time i so badly want to live on my own and now that i am i dont want it taken away from me, hahaha. But hopefully it will just be a year or two more of sharing apartments before hopefully i can manage to have my own apartment for a few years before i end up moving in with a partner maybe.... i definitely need to have my own place before i ever move in with a partner, haha.
Today is a day where i just feel content with life. Happy with my life situation, feeling ok with everything going on around me and not worrying about the next few months and how things will go. Instead just living in the present, not feeling stressed over school work or having a test to study for. Instead having more time and finally getting some time to rest and relax and just focus on myself for a little while. Its crazy how easy it is to forget about yourself and your own needs. Such as mini spa sessions, i love them but i tend to neglect them at times of stress and the best thing i can is brush my hair and wash my teeth. But today its time for face masks and hair masks and fancy smelling oils and creams, hahaha!
Anyway, i need to get back to studying now but i just want to say that i hope you are all having a great week so far and if you arent. Remember that you can change your thoughts and change your situation RIGHT NOW. You dont need to wait for next week to make a change, and you dont need to sit in silence or with anxiety, you can make a change and try to find positives or atleast end your day on a positive or better note! :) There are always ups and downs in life, but that also makes you appreciate the good times even more!!!
