October 15th was my three year recovery anniversary (ie three years since I last binged and purged and began really working on recovery) which is pretty freaking’ awesome.
But you know what’s even more awesome? I didn’t even remember until today. On Monday I was too busy going to classes, having lunch with my boyfriend and talking about wedding planning (!), taking the dog to the park, planning a shopping trip with a good friend, and playing soccer to stop and think about the significance of the date. Recovery is the foundation upon which I have built this really amazing life but most days it is not something that takes conscious thought and effort. And THAT is what real recovery is all about.
