Watching one of my favorite and most inspiring movies :)

It’s really hitting me that I’ll be on my own and away from home this summer. The more I think about it, the more upset I get.

Today, I ate. I did not restrict. I did not binge. I did not count calories. I ate when I was hungry. I ate what I craved. I also worked out today. I listened to my body and stopped when it hurt. I went to Dunkin and had my coffee. And went tanning and it made me feel good. I went to class and got to listen to the story of an incredibly brave person. I played my guitar. I sang. I watched youtube videos. I decided I was going to play/train soccer this summer. Today, I took care of myself and it felt good.

How many times have you said “I am sad today” or “I am happy” or “I am angry”, etc? If you’re like me, you do it a lot. We tend to get caught up in the moment and consider our current state to be permanent. But have you ever really thought of the meaning behind what you’re saying? Do you…

In my alcohol and drug abuse class we just had a guest speaker. He is a recovering alcoholic and addict and he came to tell us his story. It was amazing to hear. I got emotional. I am so proud of this complete stranger. Even though I am not addicted to substances, I connected with him. He gave us his contact information and I think I may just text him anonymously to say how incredible he is and how I wish him the best of luck. Also, in two weeks he is doing a two week outpatient program for anxiety and depression locally and I kind of want to know more about it once its over. His story was amazing. He was amazing. I want to touch people’s lives like he touched mine today.
