I was feeling neglectful today; having not posted here for weeks. I do have a few ideas for a nice lengthy post to do over the weekend, but for now, I will simply share a little something that feels like a real milestone. I have been less than private about many things that have happened and are happening in my life up until now, as this blog really is my medium to face, accept, and move on from hardships, heartbreak, and herculean hiccups. This blog is, after all, my place of hope, healing and happiness.
A couple of weeks ago, I took a leap outside of my comfy site, and shared my struggle with bulimia via an outside source, a wonderful website called "Choosing Raw". Gena Hamshaw is the creator, and she is also the brilliant creature behind the "Green Recovery Series" - stories written by and about folks that have found freedom from their eating disorders by adopting a vegan lifestyle. After reading a few entries there, I knew I wanted to share my story. So I did. And she did. And I got my very own special category of "recovery-in-progress", as I do believe that my recovery will be a life long project.
It felt GREAT to speak out. And I feel so blessed to have received so many honest, touching, and inspired comments on the piece. On behalf of all of us Green Recover-ers, and all that fight disordered eating, thank you Gena.
