Good morning everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
This weekend was a bittersweet one for me. I am glad to say that I actually got out of the house both on Saturday AND Sunday, which is a big deal. For the first time in a while I think I can say I actually got some sunshine :). Saturday I met up with a best friend of mine on Elmwood in Buffalo, and yesterday I made myself spend a solid 15 minutes outside in the sun. Then later on in the day got myself to an eating disorder support group for an hour. While all of this sounds well and good, I did have my struggles over the weekend, one of which was feeling like I just wasn’t important. Yesterday especially I felt useless and unproductive. My POTS and my anxiety were acting up during the day-I was feeling so down about that and so depressed that I experienced thoughts running through my mind such as “what is even the point of your existence, Claire…?” Well, I was searching around on Pinterest and I came across this pin that I posted above stating “We touch other people’s lives by simply existing” (quoted by my favorite author J.K Rowling). I let this idea sink into my head as I pinned it to my board Be Strong| Inspire. We do not need to always be busy doing something to matter in this world. You matter because you exist, and you exist because your life has a purpose. You may not know what that purpose is right now, and that is okay. I know I am uncertain most of the time as to what the purpose of my life is; but we figure it out through life’s journey. When I think about my family and friends and all of the people who I am close to and who care about me, I know that I am important and special simply because I exist on earth. So, if you are feeling down, undeserving, or like you are just not doing enough in your life, remember that you are loved by people for your very existence. Have a great day lovelies < 3
