Today, my teacher at school offered me to be one of the senior reporters for the school newspaper next semester.
There were so many different emotions I felt when I heard that, but the one that stood out the most was accomplished and happy.
Had this been a day that I started my morning by standing on a scale, I most likely would not even have been able to enjoy this news.
I only would have been focused on doing what I needed to do to make tomorrow morning’s weight lower.
But I did get to enjoy it.
I still am enjoying it.
I got offered that position because I am persistent-because I am good at what I do-and because I am dedicated.
All those traits about me that I once used to cover up and live so perfectly in my eating disorder, I am now using to become successful, and it is amazing.
150 days is another milestone for someone in recovery.
50 days ago I celebrated my 100th day in recovery by enjoying a cake with my family that said hello life on it.
Today, I celebrate 50 days later, not only hitting another milestone, but celebrating what it feels like to be proud of my life and of myself.
Part of me wants to write more and elaborate one how great this day is, but the other part of me just wants to leave it simple and direct.
Maybe I will explain more tomorrow.
But for today, hello to being the newest senior reporter for the newspaper and hello life.
