Seeking Serenity

photo22Serenity and peace are two of the greatest joys in my life. A peaceful heart and a peaceful mind are of precious value to me.

That is one of the reasons I am working determinedly to heal my eating disorder. Whenever I binge eat it steals so much from me. I instantly lose my peace, serenity, wellness, health, and happiness.

Is gorging myself on junk food really worth losing all that? Unfortunately many, many times I have chosen bingeing over peace and wellness. Why do I binge then? It is a complex mix of stress, anxiety, fear, family, and old bad habits.

However I choose now to heal. I’m choosing serenity and peace over pain and suffering. This doesn’t mean I won’t slip up anymore, if anything I fail constantly. I don’t expect perfection because I’m not perfect. I am simply one small person seeking to be well.

What am I doing today to for my wellness?

  • Spent time with God by going to church. I believe He is the great healer.
  • Trying to eat right, 3 meals and a snack in the late afternoon
  • Drink enough water
  • Exercise
  • Spend time in nature
