7/30-8/05/12, A Week to be Grateful For
Even though there are bad things that happen in life, there is always something good to follow along. Even though the past couple weeks I have not been abstinent from my overeating behaviors, gained 8 lbs, felt my shin splints coming back, and I’ve been a wreck of emotions over not being in orchestra anymore, I feel that it’s really important to acknowledge the good that has happened this past week.
The Good: I was nominated for a blog award!
The Liebster blog award I was nominated for was the first blog award I’ve ever received. I was very excited, happy, grateful, and shocked all at the same time. It really made my day.
The Good: I got a free copy of Voices of Recovery the book!
I had been wanting this book for such a long time! We read the daily excerpt from it during each weekly OA meeting, and I just love it more and more each time I read it. When I got to the meeting on Saturday, one of the ladies handed it to me, as a gift! I’m very grateful for such a wonderful gift and will utilize this as a tool for my recovery from my ED.
The Good: I’ve been abstinent for the past 2 days!
I haven’t engaged in any eating disorder behavior, over eating, under eating, over exercising, etc. for the past two days. I’m very proud of myself and very grateful to my higher power. I was having a tough time tonight with cravings to over eat, so I called my sponsor, and she helped me through it. This is definitely a step in the right direction. I just hope and pray that the streak continues… well forever!
The Good: I’ve made many new internet friends!
I’ve met lots of new people this past week via blogs, and I’m very happy with all the new internet friendships/acquaintances I’ve made. It makes me happy to have a growing support/friend network and to know I’m not alone in my struggles. I’m grateful for all the friends/acquaintances I’ve made because of blogging.
That’s all I can remember, but I’m sure there’s more to be thankful for. Thank you all for reading!
