Not Quite Ready To Face The World – Yet


Many of us tackling body image difficulties and eating disorders will have by now heard of the Body Image Movement.

I started the process of becoming an ambassador today. Filling in the form I was happy and proud of my progress, I no longer hate what I see in the mirror and appreciate my body. I think their message is not only important but essential for women and men across the world.

Being an ambassador for an organisation such as this is a long term goal I have envisioned since day one. Coincidentally I started working on my own views, at around the same time BIM began is global campaign. It is something I would love to join in with and help spread the positive messages.

Only half way through the form I had visions of speaking to others and became nervous. Having this blog and other areas helping others online. while I help myself allows me a huge degree of anonymity. I can step in and out of that zone at will, on days I need to jot think about it I’ll keep busy in other ways.

When I step out of my door (I actually do that a lot now!) No one knows much about me at all. That’s my comfort zone and pushing that boundary will take a lot longer. I haven’t submitted my application this time.

So for now my dream to run out into the world shaking the junk in my trunk to help others will have to wait.
