This month's Good News for Eating Disorders Recovery message seems especially timely as spring approaches. I just saw my first red robin - the robin is my favorite bird (other than the cockatiel, of course).
I hope you enjoy the message! :-)
You, Too, Can Renew
Each month I answer recovery questions and share insights in a newsletter I call Good News for Eating Disorders Recovery.
The newsletter is just one of the many ways that we can connect together to share the challenges and victories of our complementary recovery journeys. I get so many questions from readers, and I also get to share my favorite movies, books, and "aha moments" that I have discovered in the preceding month.
I thought I would share this month's message with you here as well, because it is spring, and everywhere we see nature renewing itself....and one of the most amazing examples of that is right here in my hometown of Houston, Texas!
You, Too, Can Renew
No, this month's title is not a Dr. Suess riddle (although I flatter myself that the late, great Doctor would be proud.)
There is a wonderful park not too far from my house. We Houstonians are very grateful for it, because there isn't too much green space left for us in a city of more than 6 million folks.
Last summer, after 2 months of over-100 degree temperatures and no rainfall, most of the stately, ancient trees at our beautiful park died.
This spring, the park crews have spent the better part of each week digging up dead tree after dead tree, turning the formerly beautiful green park into a sea of mud and dust.
And yet when I went to the park to go jogging this past week, I saw something so remarkable!
Just a few short weeks after the big ancient trees were pulled up by their roots, new tiny trees are already making their way skyward.
Life is so resilient.
If these courageous treelets can do it, you can do it too. I can do it. WE can do it.
We can renew.
You, too, can renew.
With great respect and love,
