31 Day Blogger Challenge!

The    HUNGRY   FOR   CHANGE    BLOGGER    CHALLENGE    starts tomorrow!
I will be using my voice throughout the entire month of May by participating in the Hungry for Change Blogger Challenge. 
What it will mean:
I will display 31 blog posts prompts on the topics of eating disorders (one for each day in the month of May), along with a post of my own. The aim is to spread awareness, education, and encouragement for recovery from eating disorders, so clearly I'm on board!

So stay tuned, and watch for a new post every day in the month of May. 

Here's to Change,

"To the Girl"

A bonus video, just because.
It's a poem (c) 2008 I wanted to film - there's a much older version of me reciting this original work of mine that's floating around somewhere, but I wanted to do a newer one.
The original poem by me can be found in its written form here: To the Girl

Why "We Are the Real Deal" is the Place to Be

If you haven't done so already, you really need to visit We Are the Real Deal. Yes, I'm a contributor there, but that's not why I'm plugging it. The site is amazing in a number of ways:

  1. It has a plethora of resources for things eating disorder, body image, and health & wellness related.
  2. You can be introduced to a variety of awesome bloggers who are passionate about promoting a FANTASTIC and healthy society.
  3. There are always new blog posts ranging from funny to insightful to inspiring.
  4. It's a place that joins professionals with activists with creative minds with writers with readers - and everyone in between! And all those who manage to fit into more than one category. :-)
  5. The mission statement ROCKS:
  6. YOU rock - and everyone at We Are the Real Deal is all about celebrating that.
So what are you waiting for? Are you ready for the real deal? I'm so PROUD to be part of this.

Identity & Sexuality

I apologize for the hiatus in posts - life happens and family emergencies along with a crazy schedule and a bad tooth infection/root canal prevented me from devoting my usual energy to the site. I did make a video 2 weeks ago for Wednesday Warriors, which YouTube refused to allow me to upload due to technological errors. The following Wednesday (last Wednesday) I was able to get it up for all to see, but didn't have the time to post it here. The topic was Identity & Sexuality, and my take is quite different from what you may be used to hearing.

The video is below.

The following Wednesday Warrior video was on Emotional Abuse, Identity, & Validation. Again, I filmed the video but was unable to upload it to the internet. It's still waiting to be shared with you and as soon as I can figure out how to do that, you'll have it.

I guess you could say I'm behind a week in Wednesday videos, but only in the sharing aspect. Thanks for being patient with me. :-)
