New Thinking About Eating Disorder Recovery

Hello Everyone,

I've just stepped a tiny toe into a new realm of thinking for me, and I invite you to see it unfold. I think we need a new map to find what we need on this site. Will you help?

Reconnaissance and Renascence

Limestone pavement - - 1471141Finding my way back to these pages is a challenge.  I want to be here with you. My intention is clear: to suppport recovery and the new more fulfilled life when recovery begins to be established. My intention and committment is the same as it ever was.

Yet, I've had so many experiences since my last post I discover I don't fit into the perspective I had before.  My vision changed, expanded, deepened. I've come through pain, medical crisis, relationship clarity, romance, adventure, change in body chemistry and creative inspiration.  I'm more alive than I have been in a long time and didn't even know this kind of life force energy was available to me.

The main guiding principle I've learned is this:

Withdraw from what shuts me down. Step into what opens me up. Stay aware so I have the choice.

If you do you may. If you don't you won't

Diets are just one in a plethora of "get rich quick" or "get benefits quick" ploys that take your money while making money for others. The key to surviving this onslaught is in your ability to recognize liars.

Inspiration when you are in the doldrums

Sometimes you feel down and dull for days or longer, having a sense of what you should be doing but no longer caring.  Your energy is low. You feel you've lost your way.

This inevitable zone of the human condition can catch you at any time in your life and in any stage of recovery. Great literature, art, myth and story can reach through your lonely fog to remind you of your choices.  Happily I've discovered this wonderful site, Myths-Dreams-Symbols, that can inspire you during your dark times.
