… when I finally go back to one of my most favorite places on Earth - Chamonix - and just (try to) r e l a x and not think about anything… and everything just seems to fall to place for, at least, a little while… <3.
I miss the feeling of talking to someone who’s not staring at a TV / iPhone / Laptop screen all the time… -_- …

Just sayin’ (: …
I think 2013 has been a life changing year. I don’t see the same, feel the same and think the same. When I see people, I don’t just see people, I see stories. Many many different, weird, interesting stories. Everyone is unique, you just have to talk to them on another level to unlock the mysteries.
Yeah… people ARE stories :).
All these ED thoughts are slowly being replaced by LIFE thoughts :)…
To be quite honest, most of the time I don’t really like wearing any make-up on my face… and THAT’S NOT because I think I don’t need any (I wish :p!)… it’s just because.. once I’ve got my makeup done, I can’t actually see a “better version of me” in the mirror, I mean… I simply look d i f f e r e n t.

Went volunteering in the morning, yesterday + did some Christmas shopping with my sister in the afternoon <3…
Did not feel particularly tired / sleepy / depressed / apathetic / worried about food… yesterday, I just felt almost normal again :)!
Well, the fact is … I have reached and been able to maintain my “Minimum Healthy Weight” for almost one year straight now… and that’s quite a good thing :).
What’s not so good is: I have been maintaining my “Minimum Healthy Weight” for almost one year straight now.
- - > ‘Cause, girls, unless we’re willing to lie to ourselves … we all know that being able to just maintain a Minimum Healthy Weight:
- DOES NOT equate being phisically recovered :(…
- It just means that we’ve got our body still set on survival mode…
- …and Recovery is BY NO MEANS synonimous with “survival”.

Abandoned Car & a Little Matrioska. (Photo credits go to: Like Rocks In Riots).
GOD BLESS whoever put that little Matrioska on this old/abandoned car (: …
…Sometimes, people make art without even noticing and that’s simply amazing! <3
Hell Yeah!, I think I can tell with certainty that I lost all of my “pretty years”.
I’ve got nothing to do now but accept that and just move on :) …
Success in the moment of achievement, the win, has all the characteristics of any good addiction. It hits you, making you feel like the most powerful person in the world, and the only person in the world, your world. All your work, time, and sacrifice is justified. You did it, and it feels great. But then it begins to fade. You don’t even notice it at first. But that feeling is barely there. It’s as if a balloon was inflated to create a plaster model. Over time the balloon has deflated inside the permanent plaster walls of what it was, creating empty space that never existed before the plaster was set. But the model remains unchanged, its emptiness going unnoticed as it longs to be filled again. When the rush of achievement is gone, your mind is busy—half way between remembering that feeling and planning the next one.
I was born to believe happiness exists in achievement, i wonder how many times I’ll fail before I know that happiness exists as much there as in success.
Failure strips away every artificial preoccupation. Losing brings into focus the world as it is, that is your environment, people, and your self. As the things you’ve invested in inevitably do not return on their investment, you’re forced to consider your resources, that is time, love, and attention. The greatest opportunity of failure lies in reconciling the two, the world as it is and your resources. There is no better proof of this than in your greatest of failures, death.
I’ve been lucky enough to have enjoyed some success, but maybe more fortunate to have experienced a good deal of failure. And failure has taught me infinitely more than success ever has.
I think the ironic finality of this logic is that success and failure are just personal perceptions of our manipulations, meaningless without the purpose we give them. And that when we stop trying to control the world for our gain, we can appreciate it and find contentment outside any of our goals. Not to say that we shouldn’t set goals, try to succeed, and contribute, but just that we should realize whether we get there or fail trying is not important.
Those are such wise words <3… I myself have learned so much more from my (many) failures than I have ever learned from any of my (very few) “successes”.
Hitting rock bottom, last year, was the greatest teaching I could ever get on how incredibly worthwhile it is to be A L I V E.
