I was advised to make a list of Outrageous and Exciting things I can do when I’m recovered.
I’ll be honest at admit that doing some of the things suggested nutrition wise regarding nourishing still seems outrageous, but I do realise that that’s ED at work again.
I sat down to make the list and I’ve to say I found it difficult. When I think of what I want when I recover it’s the simple everyday things I think of, going out for lunch and not stressing about it before and after, going back to work, driving, going on holidays and being present and enjoying it, owning my own home, getting married, having children…..
I find it hard to type the words “when I recover” as the ED is saying you can put that on your list of Outrageous things you can’t do!! I’m going to ignore that and make my list of at least 10 things I can do when I recover. I don’t think I’d class all the things on my list as outrageous and I’m sure most people have done a lot of them but to me they are exciting and amazing things.
- Swim with Dolphins
- Go scuba diving
- Learn to ballroom dance,
- Go to Iceland and see the Northern lights
- Visit Santa in Lapland
- Take a ride in a hot air balloon
- Go on a cruise
- Fly first class
- Go back to Chicago and try the deep-dish pizza!!!
I will be completely honest and admit that I am afraid. I’m in my own comfort zone and I’m afraid to change and I tend to choose the easy option and just stay put.
After making this list, I’m now asking myself, what am I afraid of??? If I’m even contemplating the idea of skydiving, scuba diving,…. am I really this scared, fearful person who lets the ED tell her what she can do and what about recovery am I so afraid of it if it means I can do all those exciting things and more??
I don’t plan to go skydiving before the next group but looking at my list the idea of recovery and being free doesn’t seem as Outrageous as it did a few months ago.
