What am I? I’m a daughter, a sister, a friend, a fitness freak, a gym rat, a vegetarian, a mother to a cute french bulldog, a nerd, text-a-holic, an animal activist. I’m strong, sensitive, impatient, delicate, always late. I’m an internet, twitter, facebook, social media addict. I’m not perfect, I fail, I fall… I get back up. Everyday is chance to make a better me.
My most important pursuit in life is to cut through the unimportant drama of daily life & find my own inner happiness. One day I hope to live my life free of constant negative internal talk. I want to be comfortable in my body but MORE important I want to be confident and inspire others.
I’m 31 & I struggled with anorexia, bulimia, distorted body image, excessive exercising etc for almost 10 years. I was fortunate to
have amazing parents and inner strength that helped me throughout my recovery. I can say that I am 95% recovered. But I like many women/men still struggle daily with body image, food issues, lack of self confidence, & general feelings of discontent! If there is anything I have learned from my journey through recovery is NEVER GIVE UP!
My wish for this blog is to connect with people who struggle, people that have fought back and never surrender, people who inspire, people with unbreakable strength. My wish is that my words touch other people & that I can somehow make a difference in the world.
