Choosing Life


I was talking with my friend Jenny on the phone last night, and I was telling her that I was struggling with eating. She said, "You know it's not about the food. It's about wanting to be alive." I had to take a moment to let those words sink in. Every time I don't eat, it is like telling myself that I don't want to be here. Every time I don't eat, it is like choosing death. I may not always want to deal with the pain, but I do want to live, and to truly be alive, I have to acknowledge my feelings, and become one with them. My feelings do not own me...I own my feelings. I have so much to live for.

One of the things that I'm really excited about is the new blog,
Cycle Of Healing. People are beginning to share their stories, artwork, and poems. Using your voice truly begins the cycle of healing.

Contact me at to submit your artwork or writing. All submissions may be anonymous if you would like. This blog is a place for survivors of any trauma to write, make art and speak out about their lives.
