The real reason you still have an eating disorder

the real reason you still aren’t recovered

I just got back from a short trip to St Petersburg, Florida, and this post is actually somewhat of a journal entry I wrote on one of my mornings there.

I can’t believe I’ve created this life for myself.

πŸ‘† That was the first sentence.

But the thing is, I can believe I’ve created this life for myself – because I have.

You know that phrase, “See it to believe it”?

Well, it’s actually the other way around: We don’t believe what we see, we see what we believe. In other words, experience follows belief.

I know this is very nuanced, so let me give an example…

Say, I want to be a writer (very fitting, I know). ✍️

I could tell myself: “I can never be a writer, I’ll never be as good as some of those big names out there.”

But here's the thing...

As long as I believe “I can’t” and “never will be” a writer, my experience will reflect the life of someone who can’t and never will be a writer. 

Similarly, if you believe you cannot fully recover from your eating disorder, you will never experience life as someone who is fully recovered from their eating disorder.

The stories we tell ourselves are the stories that narrate our life.

My decision to take a vacation in Florida for a few days was made somewhat spontaneously. However, the freedom to make such a decision was created long ago. 

When I decided to recover from my eating disorder, my decision encompassed a complete shift in the way I wanted to view the world.

I no longer wanted to be a slave to my external circumstances but rather, the creator of my own destiny.

Cliché, I know, but c’mon – isn’t that the freedom we all want?

To create your own destiny starts with believing you can create it. After all, no climber reached the top of Mount Everest by saying “I’m incapable”!

Although there was not yet tangible proof of the climber's victory, they knew on an inner-wisdom-level that they could achieve something only few have managed to achieve before.

And something tells me that deep inside, you know you’re capable of much more.

You know you can climb the mountains and weather the storms…

…and you’re scared.

You’re scared because you have no proof.

πŸ‘‰ How do I know this will work?

You don’t – and that’s precisely what makes this journey worth going on.

If you want help on your journey to climbing your own mountains and creating a life in which you are the caller of the shots, schedule a consultation call for 1-1 coaching here!

Through coaching, I will help you recognize the beliefs holding you back so you can shift them to beliefs that propel you forward πŸ’¨ and once you believe you can, the action steps we set become that much easier to execute.

You're reading this because you know your life can be so much better. Let's create it, together! πŸ‘―‍♂️

Lots of love,

XO Liv
