There's no word to describe how I feel. I remember like it was yesterday coming to NMSU not knowing a single person. I knew going to NMSU would benefit me in the long run getting my engineering degree. I knew going to NMSU I had to sacrifice time being away from my family and friends. It was a sacrifice I willing to make for the greater good. Being away from home was one of the hardest things I've had to deal with being home sick all the time. Being away from home showed me a lot and taught me a lot. I appreciate small things in life so much more.
During my time at NMSU I meet a lot of great people that impacted my life more than they'll ever know. I'm grateful for all the friendships I've made in Las Cruces making it feel like home away from home. Im happy with my decision because it made me what I am today and I wouldn't take it back. There was times I wanted to give up but I knew everything I sacrifice would be for nothing if I did. This means so much more to me than getting my degree. I over came so many challenges and obstacles in my life. I am thankful for my family and friends that supported me through out my journey. I wouldn’t be in this position without them. This is just the beginning of greater things to come. #nmsu#alumni#journey
I have missed out on SO many amazing moments in my life. Which moments you ask?
Well, for years, I have missed out on the process of understanding my frustrations, my disappointments and my hurts. I missed out on the most important parts of these experiences because I was too busy finding someone or something to BLAME for them. Why take any responsibility when I can BLAME it all on YOU?? 😳 #soundsbadbutitstrue
I used to guard my heart with arguments, logic and a lot of opinions. Now I see that I was the one losing with that outlook!
Through the years I have realized that my frustrated, broken moments were actually telling me something about MYSELF! Who knew?!
In the past, I have struggled to see the real opportunity of my vulnerability.
It is in these moments that my fears are revealed, my hopes, my anxieties, my failures, my tenderness, my brokenness, my expectations and my insecurities all shine bright. 💡
I wanted to run from these feelings because they made me feel weak.
But you know what?? No more running for this girl. 👈🏼 (I have never liked running anyways, sorry, Coach Youngworth!)
The only thing keeping me broken was my choice not to see myself for who I was.
Now, when I feel broken, I try to understand it. I sort through it. I am NO LONGER afraid to see my brokenness.
It is only when we see our brokenness that we can begin to take the steps to find healing. ✌🏼
Difficult roads lead to beautiful destinations. Sometimes when we first start out something new it can seem overwhelming and hard, if you just have faith and push through the steps you’ll end up at your beautiful destination
It doesn’t get talked about often enough, but someone doesn’t have to look a certain way in order to be dealing with an eating disorder. I, myself, have endured years of starving myself followed by binging. Binge eating disorder isn’t just ‘being fat’ or ‘liking to eat’ it’s torture every single day. Wondering whether you’re going to be able to eat today without it making you feel sick because of the guilt. It’s not eating for days at a time because you know as soon as food touches your lips, you’ll eat your whole fridge, cupboard, and freezer. It’s crying, and wondering why you can’t just be normal, and have a regular relationship with food.
Eating disorders are hard. Today is hard. Hopefully tomorrow will be easier. I’ve had these feelings ever since I can remember, and have memories of negative body image from year 4, where I was only 8/9 years old. This will be a struggle for me probably for the rest of my life.
I’m using my social media now to say something on the off chance it helps someone else, and we can help end the stigma surrounding BED and other eating disorders. Life is way too short to be controlled by food. .
