There’s something so exhilarating about sharing your story, something so empowering in owning your truth. I was blessed to experience this phenomenon first-hand when I created “Destination Recovery” on March 2, 2017 . I opened up about my experience with anorexia nervosa, as well as my journeys with depression, anxiety, and OCD respectively. Between sharing my story and committing to my therapy, I was hit with a healing wave. Inadequacy transformed into confidence as I committed to using my voice.
In the spring of 2018, I took a course called “Voicing the Text.” There I learned to take up space, to take up the space I deserve. I learned that as human beings, using our voice is our natural right. With that, I found my identity: artist, activist, storyteller. So too, I found my mission: to spread love and empowerment from the inside out.
Here, I share my story; I celebrate the bad and the good. I invite you now to take part in the journey. Start from the beginning, start from the middle, or hell, close your eyes and just click. Here you’ll find the first post, and here you’ll find some of my favorites 😉 .
It’s an honor to have you in my virtual home. Peace, love, and patience to all,
Bella Rose Florence
