Pecan Caramel Choco Shortbread Bars + It’s okay to not be Superhuman

The words that I wanted to hear when I was going through such a dark period was to know that there would be a light or lesson in going through this difficult period. The glimmer of light and lessons I learned along the way …

Based on my experience with my eating disorder, much of it had taken up place in my mind, that I was no longer sensing / denying how my body felt.
