Happy Thursday everyone! There is nothing I love more than some quality quotes!
I feel like lately things have been crazy and busy and confusing and time feels like it is flying by…and at the end of every day I feel like all I really want is to be loved and accepted by others.
For so many years during my eating disorder I was so wrapped up in myself, that I lost so many connections with my friends and family. I was wrapped up in a web of lies and I had no idea who I even was anymore.
But now, for the first time in what feels like forever, I finally am coming to accept myself and know myself. I know what I like, and things I want to do, and I am setting goals for myself and am truly excited for the future…whatever it may bring. Sure, it is a scary concept that I don’t know so much of what my life has in store for me…but all I can do is take things one day at a time.
That whole “one day at a time” thing was something my grandma always said, and I have a little prayer card where she wrote that on it… and there is something about seeing her handwriting and thinking of her that has made me really take this quote to heart.
I can’t stress about the future (too much haha) because I don’t really know what it has in store. However, I do know what my goals are, and I know that if I work each day towards those goals and towards being the person I want to be…well then the future shouldn’t really be that scary!
I think the main thing I struggle with now is having the acceptance of others. I try and make my own decisions on a daily basis, yet so much of my happiness is based on having the approval of my friends, family, coworkers, etc. I don’t really know what the solution to this is…I try basically to follow my instincts and do what feels right to me…yet at the end of the day I thrive on the love of others, so maybe life is just a little give and take?
You make your own decisions, surround yourself with people who support you, and hope that in the end things will have a way of working out.
