Many years ago when I was freshly recovered from my long battle with an eating disorder I was invited to come on the Oprah & Friend’s- Marianne Williamson Radio Show. I knew of Marianne Williamson’s books and work because she lived in the same town (Grosse Pointe, MI) I grew up in. In my mid 20s I began to read the books myself and when I worked with my life coach I identified her as the person I most looked up to and wanted to emulate.
I took my struggle with an eating disorder and turned it into something positive by developing an organization to help prevent eating disorders in youth. I wrote a book about my struggle to serve as hope to others looking for recovery. And I started a coaching practice to help people heal from eating issues and get in touch with their spirituality. I am still at the beginning of my path, but I still look to Marianne for hope, wisdom and direction.
This morning I asked for a miracle and I asked my inner guide (spirit) to show me I am headed in the right direction. I have some big goals and it’s easy to get overwhelmed. For some reason I got up from my desk and got out a box of pictures, which I started looking through. Shortly after I began to scold myself for being undisciplined. I had to get back to my desk there was work to do! Then I saw a disc that said Oprah Clip on it. And I immediately remembered that interview. I don’t remember ever having a recording of it though, and while I have thought about it for years, I had given up on ever finding one.
I put the disc into my laptop and I ended up crying listening to the discussion. I was crying because I can’t believe how far I have come since then. And I can’t believe how brave I was to finally get help, recover and get to speak with someone who inspired me so much. I want to share that clip with you here and I hope you get something powerful from it.
