What’s The Story, Morning Glory?

Life thus far has been interesting.
It has been heart-wrenchingly painful, but as Helen Keller once said, “Although the world is full of suffering, it is filled also with the overcoming of it.”
And overcome it i have.

Three years ago, i entered treatment for an eating disorder – an illness which had drained every colour, & every beauty from my life, & very nearly ended it completely.

When i think about my life now, & my life  at the start of this journey, i can hardly believe how different things are.
People have told me i’ve changed – that i am a whole new person now – but i like to think of it a little differently. I believe, that the person i am today, is the person i have always been – i just see myself much more clearly now. And in seeing myself, i’ve allowed my true self to be seen by others. I’m still me, but without the bullsh*t – every expectation i have shed, has revealed a beautiful, hidden piece of myself.
And the best part? I really do love the person i see now, & i am so excited to be able to spend the rest of my life getting to know her better.

I feel such immense gratitude to be here now at this point in my life, & for every beautiful, scary, & painful moment that has led me to it. Sometimes i feel as though my heart might burst with all of the hope & joy & love it holds nowadays.
I am grateful to have had these 3 years to heal, & to begin this incredible journey of self discovery.

And so it begins – a life in full colour.

  2. Hey,
    I love your website and facebook page! Just wondering if you have an email address or some way I can private message you? There are so many similarities in our stories it’s scary. Too many to recount in a comment or wall post!
    Thanks,
