As stated in my first post, I’m a 26 years old woman, who is seizing the day. I’m making changes in my eating, thinking, behavioral patterns to transform my life. In this blog, I’m going to write about my efforts and experiences during the process.
I’ve struggled with binge eating all my life, when situations get out of control, I stuff myself with food. There was a particular habit that changed that, reading. I was an avid reader as a child but somewhere over the time adulting happened, I forgot my precious books. It might have been because I invested all my time in an abusive relationship.
After the relationship ended, I was broken ( mind, body, and soul). I gathered whatever pieces left of me and I moved to London. I fell in love with the city, and myself. The change of place was exactly what I needed. I met my kind of people (twin flames, soulmates), who helped to be the person I am today. London brought the best out of me, I felt all kinds of emotions- happiness, loneliness, betrayal, heartbreak, shame, confidence, every single emotion listed in Aristotle’s book “Rhetoric”. It led me to back to my reading habit.
I firmly believe in “What you think, you become”. And after all those self-mastery books, that’s exactly what happened. I started waking up at 4.30 am, practicing yoga and meditation, working out 6 days a week, taking up group dance classes ( something I’ve always wanted to do but lacked the confidence), weekly bar salsa, etc. My life was at its peak. Then I moved back home due to my family, and I was in square one, yet again. I could say that this blog is me trying to get my mojo back. And I know, I already have.
I hope you find that teeny tiny bit of purpose to make that positive change in your life because only a little purpose is needed for a big change. Thank you for reading. Stay tuned for more.
