So it’s Christmas Day (or more like night). I hope all of you who celebrate have had a blessed and beautiful day. First off, I’ve decided to participate in The Daily Post’s Weekly Writing Challenge, which is to post each day for one week. What perfect timing for me, seeing as I’m off for the week. Plus, as the end of the year approaches, I feel like I have a tons I want to write about.
For today, I wanted to share a letter one of my best friends wrote at one point in her recovery. The holidays can be a difficult time for everyone, but this is especially true for those of us in recovery from an eating disorder. It’s easy to put recovery on the back-burner, promising ourselves we will pick it back up in the New Year. I have often turned to this letter when I am having one of those, “That’s it, I give up, recovery be damned!” moments. By sharing this, I hope to help anyone out there who may be struggling today, this week, or anytime in the future. This is beautiful piece, written from the heart, by an amazing woman who means so much to me and inspires me every day.
I hope you enjoy this holiday gift from me (and my friend) to you. May to be a ray of hope when darkness sets in. And stay tuned for my own personal “Dear Beautiful” letter – coming soon!
