What if...

image

What if I just ate what was on my meal plan...

What if I exercised only for the love of it...

What if I could spend the day with my friends and not worry about the 'time wasted'...

What if I stayed truly present when I am with my children...

What if I only said nice things about myself...

What if I was happy to be me and not compare myself with others...

What if I made my own health a priority...

What if I dyed my hair pink...

What if I got a tattoo...

What if I got drunk...

What if I made a fool of myself...

What if I ate a whole packet of Tim Tams...

What if I laughed more and worried less...

What if I ordered the meal on the menu simply because it sounded good...

What if I really didn't care what the scales said...

What if I let go of my eating disorder...

...would the world end?

Would the world end? Nope! And you might even have some fun along the way :)

What if you started right now? Sometimes the most powerful words are "I have decided." Sending you love and light across the way...

Your What if... list is beautifully written. But it makes me sad for you and your sad heart. I shall never take these things for granted again. xxx

PJ said...

Goodness, don't feel sad for me - I'm doing great! There's certainly nothing sad about my heart.
The whole point is that NO! the world wouldn't end. But it's really just me thinking out aloud all the things I'd like my recovery to look like. All the things I'm working towards having and enjoying.
And just the thought of dyeing my hair pink makes me laugh :)PJ

Rachel said...

no, if you did these things, the world wouldn't end. in fact, life might truly begin again.

Loved this list.
I can identify with so much of it.
I want to be all of it.
Of course the world wouldn't end - but could I live with myself??
