“Recovery is learning that you have a choice: You can choose to be hopeful rather than hopeless; you can choose to act from faith rather than react from fear; and you can choose to enjoy life rather than merely survive it.”
Imagine a world so small that it hurts to breathe. A world that makes you feel like you don’t deserve to smile.. to love.. to live. In this world.. the ring is only big enough for 2.
You & ED.
Of course when you throw your first punch your gonna stumble.. your gonna fall.. and you’ll probably want to give up. ED is going to knock you down. He is going to make you feel insignificant. And he is going to throw some sucker punches when you least expect it… But here’s the thing:
The only way ED will ever win… is if you give up.
A lot of people refer to ED as the “abusive boyfriend” …this metaphor seems pretty accurate. ED definitely gets his hits in both physically and mentally.
In this scenario you have 2 choices:
(1) You can stay with ED and keep letting him walk all over you.
(2) You can take a self defense class and kick his ass…
… I chose door #2
What did I find behind door number 2?
My relationship with my family is stronger than ever:
My Love for Fitness & Advocare:
AND I even try to cook every once in awhile…
But most importantly… I found confidence and true happiness for myself.
Do I still have rough days? Of course. But I would take a life time of “rough days” over another minute spent with ED. I wake up every day with the motivation to be better than I was before. Not SKINNIER than I was the day before.. but stronger, healthier, smarter, and kinder.
Don’t give up. Don’t settle. Don’t make excuses.
Make every day count xoxo
