Hello again my loves! <3 <3
So, just ’cause I made motivational Thursdays a “thing“, it does not mean that motivational Fridays “unbecame” a “thing“. AND SO, on this FRIYAY night, I come to you with a BIG-AF SMILE (Oh, & some cat ears, but forget about those for a sec!). BUT, there’s something real special about her (the smile, guys):
She’s the REALEST SHE’S BEEN IN MONTHS.
Munchkins, allow me to let you in on a little something: My journey towards anorexia recovery THUS FAR has taught me that TRUE HAPPINESS COMES FROM WITHIN. What!?
Basically, we can only find TRUE HAPPINESS if we look within ourselves & learn to be our “self’s” bestie. My journey has allowed me to acknowledge that happiness is a state of mind, which is created by US – In fact, all of our emotions are a result of our thoughts & ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS IN LIFE IS THE REALIZATION THAT WE CAN BE IN CHARGE OF OUR THOUGHTS (Even if at times, we find it difficult to do so OR if it feels as though something or someone stronger than us is holding us back. Anorexia, I’m referring to you & guess what? BYE FELICIA!).
Essentially, our thoughts are a consequence of our reactions to the various events that occur in our lives. IT IS HOW WE CHOOSE TO REACT TO THOSE EVENTS/SETBACKS/TRAUMAS/PROBLEMS that ultimately creates our state of mind.
All this to say, recovery has taught me that happiness is a product of my own mind (Which I am EFFING PROUD TO SAY I HAVE REGAINED COMPLETE & UTTER CONTROL OF 😍) & has allowed me to realize that if I want to live a happy life, I need to WORK ON MY HAPPINESS EVERY SINGLE DAY. & my loves, that’s exactly what I do.
Everyday, I reflect on the things that make me happy (FOOD, for one. LAWLZ!) & I allow myself to enjoy them. I do not look for happiness. I do not chase it. I look within myself & I choose HAPPINESS every single day.
And for me, HAPPINESS MEANS LIFE. I choose LIFE every single day.
Recovery has taught me more about WHO I AM & my DRIVE comes from inside ME. And, this, my loves, is the reason I’m still standing today (Literally). It’s the reason I AM ALIVE & I mean, MORE ALIVE THAN EVER.
