Beautification.

As I prepare for a potential discharge from the EDU, I decided I wanted to beautify and revamp FromHereToThereInPurple. I believe this urge arose from my desire for a new outlook on recovery post hospitalization. Though, mentally I struggle each and every day and still glorify in the bask of my misery, I have vowed to keep a positive outlook while keeping my goals and aspirations in sight. Therefore, through blogging about the beauty around me (found in nature, people, food, etc. and life in general) I feel I will be motivated to think positively while Ed becomes less of an impact in my life.
What's to be expected with the beautification of this blog?

  • Art. life in color and in black & white.
  • Recipes and appreciation for food. (I strongly believe that if I can discuss and accept food as, not just necessary but fun, I will gain a healthier, more positive outlook)
  • The books, movies and music that intrigue and inspire me.
  • And, of course, my day to day thoughts, feelings and experiences as I continue down the yellow brick road to recovery.
Why wait until post discharge? The answer is simple. I don't want any of my fellow EDU peers to feel triggered thus uncomfortable around me. It's a concept of respect.

Back to the present. Pittsburgh was everything I hoped it would be and more. This morning I volunteered at the local Food Pantry and had an epiphany. I realized how often I take food for granted. I thought about those who can't afford to feed their families and all the times I've wasted or refused food because of Ed. Food is medicine and I should be more appreciative for it every single day--I can't explain the guilt I felt this morning. On my return flight to Yardley, I thought about how grateful I am for my beautiful friends. I would be incomplete without each and every one of them. I want to thank you for being my friend. Thank you for the eternal impact you have made on my life.




What do you find to be beautiful?
