The last couple of weeks have been hard with school, my baby and life in general. However, I have brokedown several times which allowed me to understand more about myself and what I wish to change. My two success I have done recently: I told my coworker my issue and struggle with food. I opened up to someone I barely know but this allowed me to make a great friend. I have also figured out why and how my eating disorder affected my personal space issues. Besides my husband, daughter and best friend, I could not stand anyone being close to within arms reach. It made me incredibly uncomfortable. However, I have spoken to my husband and work on this by giving more random people hugs throughout each day. It gets me out of my comfort zone for sure, but I am taking control of little things I never knew my eating disorder had control of. Plus, what better way to work on youself than by giving out free hugs? =D

Apparently hashtags are the popular thing for now. I encourage you all to #speakbeautiful once a week or #prettygirlseat in order to see how it boosts your day. I would also love to share our small, wonderful accomplishments with each other on here or using a hashtag we come up with together. What do you think? 

Have a great week everybody! I look forward to hearing from you!
