Well for the last 5 days since my last post love, the question “What would love do?” guided me to do many things, but writing in my blog was not one of them!
February 2nd – 4th was the 6th annual EDRS (Eating Disorders Recovery Support) Inc. Conference.
This whole conference was an example of what love and passion together moves people to do.
We had National Experts in the field of Eating Disorders come to speak to us. They paid their own air fare and spoke pro-bono to raise money for our treatment fund!
When we were all gathered over these past three days, my hope in my mission of eliminating eating disorders was rekindled. My vision to bring self-love to individuals and the world resonated with the attendees.
The money is not all tabulated yet, but it looks like we have more than doubled last year’s $5,000 earned for our treatment fund!
People in California can go to our website www.edrs.net and download the application form, and send it in to apply for a scholarship for treatment recovery from an eating disorder.
So much can happen when you ask the right questions!
What difference can you make in your life and the life of others by asking “What would love do?”
