Aspen Grove

“May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.” -Edward Abbey
For those of you who might not know, I started working at Aspen Grove for the Summer this week, yay!

Aspen Grove really is a beautiful place to be.
 Does it remind anyone else of "The Sound of Music"?
I am so grateful for the love and care that my Heavenly Father has blessed me with over the past few days. I'm amazed by the friends that I have already made and the fun that I've been able to have in such a short period of time (being the shy person that I am, this is a miracle in itself).  I know that I wouldn't have been able to find the courage to do any of this without His help and guidance.

While being here, I've been able to realize how far I have come with my eating disorder and self-esteem. I'm not scared. I don't have to worry about losing myself or becoming embarrassed by my urges to eat. I want people to see me for all that I am.

I've climbed mountains that I once thought too large to fathom.
I'm finally here in the present-- Loving life, and loving myself.

I'm grateful for the paths that I've wandered and the amazing view that I've been led to.
Trials once large now seem miniscule--I appreciate them.
Life has become much simpler...sweeter.

I now see past trials as training for larger ones that will surely come. From my experiences, I know that I can climb mountains. I am capable of accomplishing the impossible.

We all are.

Hardships will constantly beset our existence, but I guess that's the beauty of human nature,
we're unbreakable.
