Classic

In a world full of trends, i want to remain a classic That sentence gonna be my forever favourite quote and reminder to self too. —— This is not a usual way i am starting a blog post….. Instead, you might find that the sentence and paragraph on this blog post is quite jumping here and there. I do my own reflection as i type this. So pardon the messy paragraph and i hope you guys still enjoy reading this and get something to hold on, to value yourself, and to stand for what you believe ❤️ ————…..———— Often, we lost our identity just to fit in into the crowds. We can’t hold on to the value we once believe… Just because that’s too odd or old fashioned for others. We know that some ideas are just wrong but we don’t have enough courage to stand and say NO. Sad. Tragic. Why? Because we afraid that we don’t have somebody to be with us. Someone cool enough to support us. So…

A Letter to My 20-Year-Old Self

Originally posted on Am I Thirty Yet:
So tomorrow is the big day! The day this entire blog was written about. I turn 30! Turning 30 has made me think a lot about what it was like when I was turning 20 and saying goodbye to my teens. I didn’t handle it very well. There were panic attacks and I actually wet the bed the night of my birthday. (This is a true story and maybe I’ll tell you lucky people about it in another post.) For now, let’s go back to poor, little 20-year-old Liz. She was not excited about leaving her teens behind her and entering her twenties. Current Liz still isn’t 100% sure on what she wants with her life and the direction it is going to take. But 20-year-old Liz might as well have been on another planet. She didn’t even know what hairstyle worked best for her face or how to put on eyeliner. She was a lost soul who needed a lot of guidance. Now being a wise, almost 30-year-old (that…

recovering from an ED || a beautiful journey of various volumes

? “recovery is not a destination where one day you will wake up and feel fixed but rather it’s a slow mending process that follows an imperfect line where progress is made over time. along the way your eating disorder will make it’s presence known as it fluctuates between being very quiet or very loud. use this as reassurance that you are healing by the mere fact that you are aware of the sounds it makes and in charge of the volume. “ ? finding this quote from Tina Klaus of Don’t Live Small?was a sign from the universe, i swear. i have read it multiple times knowing how much i must?remember that my eating disorder may flare+ fluctuate, but i remain in charge of the internal volume. i remain in recovery. so i’m being a bit more candid in this post, less about tasty healthy treats?+ more about what i have experienced as well as continue to live with. i’m curious who else had a difficult time…

I Love My Fat Body

This is my body. This is my body after it climbed a steep hill. This is my body after it climbed a steep hill halfway across the world in Czech wine country. This body is fat. I love this fat body. It was mine the first time I kissed a boy. It was mine the first time I performed on stage. It was mine when I graduated high school and then college. During every volleyball game, track meet, softball tournament. When I wrestled my brothers and won. When I wrestled them and lost. Every car ride to nowhere and abandoned trampolines during summertime with my friends- this fat body has always been mine. I love this fat body. I’ve grown up in this fat body. I’ve seen heartbreak and loss in this body. I haven’t always shown this body how much I loved it, but it has always forgiven me. This body breeds confidence. This body begs me to be bold. This body demands success and unadulterated tenacity.…

What is 20 Something?

Originally posted on whatis20something:
I’ve been sitting in my room on Pinterst for the past two hours.  Perusing the common tags; ‘Women’s Fashion’, ‘Food’, and ‘DIY’.  But my most recent search is what sparked this blog, “Single Girl”.  Why do these two words mean so much to so many people?  Why do these words have such a negative connotation?  Why is being a “Single Girl” such an issue? The search produced an array of results.  There was The Single Girl 30 Day Challenge, which entails putting yourself out there more and allowing your friends to set you up on blind dates.  (Is that still a thing?)  Then you may scroll and find The Single Girl’s Summer Bucket List, which has an icon photo of a guy and a girl pushing another girl, who looks like a third wheel, on a tire into a lake.  (SO FUN).  And, eventually you will come across what I was looking for The Single Girl’s Guide to Grocery Shopping.  My issue with the search overall and even my eventual discovery of what…
