As A Momma

This video really spoke out to me, as a recovering anorexic and as a mother. I was always told when I first started my recovery process, that I would need to be careful due to the fact that I have these two identities. It is hard, it is a struggle I never thought of nor wished to have. But as a mom, my priority is to raise a daughter who never struggles with what I do. I have a main priority to keep her safe, healthy and happy. Sometimes we forget how much we affect others. We all have things about our bodies that we may not like, but as one of the moms in this video said, "I may not like my legs but I focus on the fact that they are strong...and I am a good runner." Focus on the positive of your body, the amazing things it allows you to do. Focus on becoming healthy, happy and loving yourself. You are beautiful and strong!!

Thank you so much for sharing.  Children learn so much from their parents, but remember to remain kind to yourself and know your doing the best you can. This video is a huge eye opener and very inspiring. Thanks for sharing.
