Posted on April 02, 2018Every year, I find myself with great excitement looking forward to NEDAW! There is something really special in being able to witness so many strong individuals band together to spread awareness about something so important. Incredible, brave stories are shared by those impacted in some way by this disorder, while working to crush the stigma that unfortunately still plagues the topic. It's an energized week full of inspiration that as much as I look forward to it, I also feel sad to see it go. As this year's week wrapped up, I found myself wondering why the actions and messages spread during this time can't continue all year long. Recovery is a constant journey, so why shouldn't the discussion be constant, too?
Sometimes I forget how far I've come. Taking time to reflect is so important. Especially when I'm having bad body image days, I am able to take a step back and tell myself that I have grown soooo much.
