All We Can Be….

Forgiveness is allowed. We can’t be everything to everyone. We don’t have to be in control all the time. We are allowed to be flawed, everyone is. Everyone!

Accept you and all that you are. You are greater than you know!

Unlock what you hide from others theough fear. You are capable of so much!

Let go. Let go of all the negative comments,  opinions and comments. They do not difine you, you do!

Move forward and have faith in youself. You will surprise youself!

All this is within your reach. Take it one step at a time and you will make progress.

Make your own goals and targets to achieve.  No one else can do that, no matter what they think or say. Those that matter will help you up. Those thay don’t….leave them behind in your thoughts. Build your own walls around their attempts to drive you down.

Make the choice to not accept being told you can’t. Don’t look for validation in those that have crushed you before,  they will do it again. Use your achievements to show yourself how wrong they are.

You can succeed! Choose to believe it and if you can’t get there yet. Choose to try and change that.x

What Lies Within

Being in the grip of self loathing, inadequacy and failure is hell. We go round in circles trying to change things, to feel normal and able to step outside without the burning embarrassment our bodies create. How do we stop it? Who could possibly understand or want to be burdened with our crushed self esteem. That’s if we can actually articulate how you feel!

Helping You To See How Far You Can Go

I write my blog as a form of therapy. It’s a wonderful tool to get out those emotions that I often hold in. After 10 months of recording my progress,  both ups and downs, I am feeling relaxed and pleased with my progress.

Perceptions Are Our Undoing

Try something with me for a minute, a word association game.   Can you list 10 words associated with the word food? What you think about? Are your respnses positive or negative?

Diets Are Like Squeezing Into Trousers A Size Too Small

We’ve all pulled a pair on, stretched them to their limit and squeeeezed that button into the hole. You may not be able to bend over or even breath properly but they are on right!

Not A Time To Become Complacent

image

It would be very easy for me to stay where I am with my progress, coast along. It may work out ok, then again I may find myself in a few weeks backsliding and documenting binges again. So I need to keep on making changes and progress. Starting with why I’m currently sat in a supermarket carpark writing this post…

It’s a little hard to believe my last post was as long ago as WordPress tells me. Time flies when your having fun.

Finding Others Like Ourselves

image

In order for me to recover I need to share my struggles. Chat forums are an ideal place for me to be able to bare my soul and learn more about myself without the fear of rejection or distain. By using these I have ‘met’ people who are going through the same problems. We share stories, day to day experiences and help each other to unravel questions and issues.

The Ball Is Rolling!

Work has begun on my advertising pages for the photography business. It will be a slow start as right now I’m prioritising my time with my kids before the world of school begins.

I won’t be sharing or linking my work with the blog. I need this space to keep on track and heading for that recovery. I will from time to time take shots specifically for the blog. It’s a shame as I wish I could just be up front but the second I reveal myself I would undo all my work. Not doing too badly though…January 2014 I was at my lowest, August 2014 I’m setting up my own business. Dare I say it, I’m a little proud of myself.

Away we go:-D….

The Pendulum Of Self Doubt

Right now I am struggling with the concept that I can achieve something….. Anything.  Having taken the tentative steps towards self employment,  I am panicking. What if I am no good, what if it fails as none wants to buy my work and what if I have to go back to being an employee?
