I'm Kate. I used to not eat. I had Anorexia Nervosa and got very sick and hated my life. A few years ago I began a recovery process, which I believe is a lifelong deal. I'm still in the process of healing my mind, body, and spirit, and there are a lot of things that help me do this. Here is a short list!
-Buddhist Mindfulness practice, meditation, Radical Acceptance, praying, the Psalms
-Food. Lots of it. Mostly only the delicious kind.
-Exercise. Lots of it. Mostly only the fun kind. A jezziefriend called it Slayer Training, which I joyfully stole. If you don't know what this means, don't worry. If you do, I love you.
-Therapy (still. I think it might never end.)
-Having good friends and family, both IRL and on the wonderwebs (*trademark, my brother.)
-12 Step recovery principles (but I am not a Big Book Thumper, so please don't be afraid.)
This will be a place for me to dump copious amounts of recipes (the good and the bad), talk about spirituality and what I learn in my weekly sitting group, repost inspiring and awesome quotes and stories, and share ridiculous and/or obscene pictures, gifs, and assorted other whatnots. That's how I roll. I hope you will enjoy.
Ask me anything
He knows the way to my heart, obviously. #food
Awwwww husband is proud of me for (finally) getting my LPC-MHSP ;)
My friend Franchesca is going to be on Broad City tomorrow night. You should all watch!!!
I feel like crying, I am so happy and relieved. This licensure process has been actual hell. I’m sure you guys know because I’ve talked about it enough.
My professional licensure was approved! I’m now officially an LPC-MHSP and I can go into private practice!
Who should I be following on Instagram?
EVERYBODY LOOK AT THIS
Whole wheat peanut butter banana bread with dark chocolate chunks! Made two loaves, which was the right thing to do.
