Have you ever wondered why parents punish us for bad grades even when we have fantastic grades in other classes? Let's say you got an "F" in social studies but got "A+'s" in all your other classes. Instead of rewarding you for the other classes, they decide to ignore the fact that you got amazing grades in all but one class & punish you for the one class that you decided to slack off on a little because you were too busy focusing on the other classes in order to get good grades. But something else that makes me wonder is why whenever you brush your teeth with minty toothpaste and then drink a cold & refreshing glass of water it tastes & feels amazing in your mouth! But then you drink orange juice & the moment is just gone forever. Sometimes I feel like the most important people in my life decide to leave without a trace & all the ones that are fake decide to stay & secretly hope you fail in life. Get out of my life if you're not going to be there for me! Because then, you're just useless. I get so tired in class like I can barely keep my eyes open. But then the minute I take the first step through the front door of my house, I feel so hyper! Like I just drank fifteen large cans of Monster! Monster is 100 times better than Rockstar simply because it was here first. Wait, now I sound bad. I'm judging Rockstar without tasting it! I think I'll go buy a Rockstar. I'm so ashamed :( ok bye!!! :)
Hello everyone! My goodness, it has been a long time since I have done an update on here! I hope everyone has been doing wonderful and remembering how amazing, worthy, and beautiful they are! So much has been going on lately; I can hardly believe we are heading into the second week of June!
This year has been great; full of growth and learning opportunities. I love my current job. I am working at a residential treatment facility for adults who battled substance abuse and have been there since February. I enjoy having the opportunity to talk to them about God and being able to make a difference each day. I have some of the most amazing friends; true friends. Something I haven’t always experienced. I am growing each day in my relationship with God and becoming better at trusting him in all areas of my life and not just some.
This year has been spent going around to different schools and groups and talking to young women and men about eating disorders, self-esteem, and learning to love themselves for WHO they are. I have been enjoying this so much. I will also be moving within the next month and a half to Omaha, Nebraska where I will be working towards finishing my degree in social work. I just took a job at the Children’s Hospital where I will be a psych tech working on the eating disorder unit. This is a place where I was treated. I will be working with several of the amazing people who helped save my life throughout the years.
I have also been growing even more in my relationship with my brother. My brother is ready to begin walking the path with Jesus. He ‘believes’ but he doesn’t KNOW God. I am so eager and excited for the journey with him. It was such an amazing visit 2 weeks ago when he let me pray for him, with him.
The other big thing I am doing this summer is celebrating 2 years of recovery on July 5th! It is hard to believe how far I have come within 2 years and that nothing is the same … WHICH is a GREAT thing! I am partnering with the National Eating Disorder’s Association to raise money for scholarships, funding, materials for parents/individuals to learn, etc. Such an amazing cause to give back to! You can check out the main walk page and my personal page/donation page. If you are interested in participating or helping that would be beyond appreciated!
