“The only way to have a life is to commit to it like crazy.”

I’m committing to my life now, which is why I need to be done with this blog.

I am recovered. I’ve considered myself recovered for a while now. Typing those words brings actual tears to my eyes. I am so happy.

To all the blogs I followed: thank you. I took pieces of all of your struggles and made them my own, climbed those mountains with you. Your quotes, pictures, articles, everything - it was all so helpful. Thank you thank you a thousand million times THANK YOU.

To those who followed me: I hope I helped you in that same way. I hope and pray you get to this point someday, and I KNOW you all can. Don’t stop fighting, never ever ever. There are so many more moments to live. Laughs to be had. People to meet, people to love. Cling to that hope and keep climbing.

I’m going to try to pick up my old blog again, so if you’re interested in where I go from here, follow awkwardthumbs.tumblr.com.

Again, I love you all. This is such an incredible support system, so use it well. But don’t be afraid to walk away when the time is right. Dwelling on the disorder and others who are struggling past that golden point only allows the demons to dwell in you more than you need to.

Stay strong, beautiful little butterflies

I recently found out something super awesome.


When you get done ripping off the good parts of the celery from the base of it, you can set the left over celery butt in a bowl of water…

…and it totally grows back.
