I'm at the point that everyone has been telling me about since I've begun recovery.
The point where you are the mouth of the tunnel, can step out and see the sun.
And all I can think is "I'm home, I'm back."
Its been a very long road and my journey isn't finished. But all the sweat and tears that I've been pouring into my fight with my eating disorder has been paying off.
At my graduation ceremony last night I received the "Strength" award and each girl who I have been in program with said the sweetest and most touching things about the strength they've perceived in my, the fact that they admire my ability to articulate my feelings, and that they felt privileged to have known me. I can't explain how much it meant to me to hear that.
I feel empowered by the fact that my work in recovery has inspired others and I am even more motivated to continue to challenge myself.
I also received student of the month at my school, which felt really good.
Things are coming together. I am so grateful for all the support I've received through battling my eating disorder. I am so blessed in the fact that I am alive, at a healthy weight, typing these words.
It is truly spectacular to be able to wake up every morning with so many opportunities.
I ended up snacking on alot of chocolate. Although this isn't a bad thing, my body felt a bit off from all the richness combined with the different eating times.
Hopefully tomorrow I can achieve more balance so that my body has time to absorb the benefits of what I'm eating.
Anyways I just want to send out another huge thank you to all of those who have taken the time to comment! It really means so so much.
I hope all of you enjoy your weekend.
Take it as an opportunity to relax!
