This post is part of a collection of awakening stories put together by Barbara at Me My Magnificent Self
Barbara put together a collection of awakening stories 2 years ago, in which I shared my story. When asked to participate in an update, my first thought was, “I don’t have many words.” It seems the further into this journey I go, the fewer words I have — though my desire to reach out to others increases with each step.
It has been 5 years since I decided to risk everything to become my own healer and free myself from a long struggle with anorexia. I remember that day clearly, as if it was yesterday. “I’m going to the core.” I said. That was the sentence that changed my course and led me here —
to the place of few words.
And so I continue to reflect the peace I found in the deepest part of my heart through my quiet reflections and prayers. I continue to write and share because I know the pain of feeling disconnected with my true self. It is my hope that my words will touch a few hearts as deeply as the words that were shared with me.
May these words find their way to the quiet place within your own heart.
