After yesterday's very negative post, I decided to make a much more positive post today. In fact, I decided to give you a little tour of all the positive stuff I have in my room and bathroom. Putting up affirmations and pictures in my room was a therapy assignment at first, but I found it really helped. When I moved out of my parent's house into my student house, I decided to do the same thing with my room.
This is my full body mirror right by my scale. The quote on it says "A mirror is just a piece of glass and you are worth so much more than that". I personally find a lot of the eating disorder related affirmations don't help me that much. But this one does. It is so completely true, and reminds me that there is more to me than my weight. I'm off to go learn things every day, that's why I'm at school. I can't let my weight determine what I'm going to do in a day.
Underneath is a smiley face and a 10/10 my friends stuck on my mirror. They surprised me one night when I was out, and bedazzled my room. I don't know what I'd do without these wonderful friends.
Here is a post regarding how I made them)
This is my magnetic board behind my desk. I have one of my favorite quote and pictures - the girl made of stars and planets that says "You're body is the piece of the universe you've been given." - Geneen Roth. I have the letter that says I received a summer grant to do research. My counselors card, some Ed Sheeran lyrics, and my note pad. I also have my sun light here, which I have found helped quite a bit with my seasonal depression.
I love to dance. And I love this quote. Who cares what others think, or if others are watching. Just dance.
These are a few of the ways I've made my room and bathroom more positive. I have to live in it, no use in having it bring me down every day. Sometimes these positive quotes and affirmations do nothing. Sometimes they help me get out of bed. Sometimes they help me get my homework done. And again, sometimes they don't help at all. But I'd rather have my room help me sometimes, rather than never.
Have a great day darlings,
