I love writing and I really love blogging.
Yesterday I went and visited a friend and we just chatted and shared what we wanted to do this year.
I had started a draft for a book that I want to write and it is still a work in progress.
The book that I am writing is about my journey with having an eating disorder. In the book I really want to focus on recovery. I know when I was going through it I really wanted to talk to someone that had recovered and see what their life was like without the illness.
I had read a few books when I was in the depth of the illness, they were good but they mainly focused on the illness and what that person did to keep it.
I really wanted to read a book about someone who had recovered and how they did it.
I know that everyone’s journey is different, but I think that what I was looking for was hope. I wanted to know that recovery was possible at a time when I couldn’t see it myself.
My friend had such a great idea about writing about it on the blog. She suggested if I wrote once a week or once a fortnight then by the end of the year, I would have enough for the book.
That made it seems less daunting and it made it seem not as scary or overwhelming.
Now I just have to commit to it and I have to learn that being vulnerable is okay.
I knew that when I was going through the illness that I wanted to speak and write about my journey.
I know that 2016 is the year to pursue it.
So I am going to be brave, I am going to be vulnerable, I am going to take a deep breath and I am going to begin.
I want to make a difference.
Will share more soon.
