Every Moment Counts...
Today..is Monday! This morning after my weekly doctors appointment, i went with my mother to feed the ducks down at the Bishops Palace. It was freezing but the sun was shining.. oh so stunning. It's the little things in life we really take for granted sometimes...the beautiful flowers, singing birds in the morning, ducks gliding across the clear spring water on a gorgeous day, love. We take love for granted. I was pondering the other day, thinking if love were enough, would we still have addictions? If love were enough, would people still smoke, drink excessivly, strive to be slim regardless of the impact on those around them? Love should be enough, but just because recovery is difficult...even feeling impossible just to begin..it dosn't mean people don't love. Does that make sense?
It is one of the biggest misconceptions that people with eating disorders (especially anorexia) flat out don't eat. People seem to imagine the suffers living off nothing but bottles of water and salad, it's a common misconception that deeply upsets me. It can also make a person feel "Hang on...i do eat, therefore i must be fine". This is far from the truth. My weight is currently maintaining and yes, i'm happy about this. I'm eating abit more, but i'm still unwell. So..here was my amazing brunch (i was late after my appointment). Porridge covered in Blueberries! It was absaloutly..devine.
A girls best friend is her cat, is this true? This is Pippy, she hates me. The only person she gets on with in this house is my mother..and oh my is she over protective! When she wants to be, she is cute. I sat on the sofa with my porridge and hot water bottle when Pippy came storming into the lounge, playful as ever. I wouldn't dare touch her, so i throw over her catnip mouse. Isn't she so cute?
This post has been pretty random, i'm aware. The problems we face everyday shouldn't be the basis of our life. I do want to tell you this;
