Who’d have thought, a few years ago, that I’d be doing the things that I’m doing now.
It is important, every now and then, to stop and reflect on the progress, even if the process remains hard.
We forget, sometimes, just how far we’ve come, because we’re worrying so much about how far’s left to go.
It is limitless.
So, I’m taking a pit stop and coming up for air –
Because, who’d have thought, a few years ago, when it felt like I was “all talk”, that I’d be sitting here writing stuff down for people to read? And who’d have guessed, if they saw me frantically dashing between food shops, swollen cheeked and skeletal handed, that it was the same person calmly sitting here today.
Change is as scary upon reflection, as it is in anticipation; but it does, at least, prove that anything’s possible –
Because, who’d have thought, five years ago, that I would be looking out of my own window, rather than staring at another bathroom wall. And, who’d have supposed that I would manage to eat, on a regular basis, without nose-diving into a binge or spending hours shuffling around peas?
So, it’s important, every now and then, to take a little step back and acknowledge the improvement, because it’s easy to forget the distance travelled when the destination keeps jumping around.
And it’s helpful, when you’re getting tired of the journey, to take a momentary breather and a second to reflect –
Because, who’d have thought, a few years ago, that this life, with it’s colours and connections and energy, would really belong to me?
