However, without vision, passion, and determination, the plan and financials mean very little. This article is written for those who have created, cultivated or work in outpatient eating disorders programs who want to be the best at what they do, and who are determined to do whatever it takes to continue to have their program be of service to patients.

The Things That Make You Strange Are The Things That Make You Powerful

The message that Ben Platt delivered at the end of his Tony Award acceptance speech was, “Don’t waste any time trying to be anyone but yourself, because the things that make you strange are the things that make you powerful.”

If you have seen the movie Pitch Perfect, you may remember Jesse’s eccentric roommate Benji, played by Ben Platt. This talented 23-year-old recently won the Tony Award for lead actor in the musical, “Dear Evan Hansen.”

The message that Ben Platt delivered at the end of his Tony Award acceptance speech was, “Don’t waste any time trying to be anyone but yourself, because the things that make you strange are the things that make you powerful.”

Artists come in many forms – actors, writers, singers, dancers and even business professionals. With the latter, the architect of the business strives to make his or her platform stand apart from similar entities. Its uniqueness is often questioned and rejected- mainly out of fear. A leader will plow through with the idea, for they stand in their truth.

The philosopher, Arthur Schopenhauer said that, “All truth passes through three stages. First it is ridiculed. Second it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as self-evident.”

If it wasn’t for the individuals who dared to step out of the box, we wouldn’t enjoy many of the great luxuries we have today, nor benefit from the great healing methods of those who challenged the norm.

This past issue of AARP magazine focused on those in their mid to late 50s – illustrating the trailing baby boomers who are more settled and bring in wisdom and confidence. They are also not afraid express themselves. Christina Ianzito, AARP writer summed it up with, “Ah who cares? I can be who I want to be.”

So, no matter what age you are – for those of you who feel stifled, don’t be afraid to unleash your creativity. This is true authenticity. An unknown author said, “When you dance to your own rhythm, people may not understand you, they may even hate you, but mostly they wish they had the courage to do the same.”

Stay In Your Own Lane

Stay in your own lane. Need I say more?

I heard this quote on the radio today. It rang so true, as the saying seems to epitomize life lately. As you shake your head when others want to focus on you, versus growing themselves, keep this quote handy – and just smile…And as another saying goes-aside from sweep your side of the street, stay in your own lane. Need I say more?

Where is Beverly?

It is said that Yogini’s don’t grow old, but grow wiser. I hope that you will find wisdom in my writings and look forward to keeping in touch through my blog…

Hello and welcome to my blog!

I wanted to update you as to the acquisition of my business, the Inner Door Center, Eating Disorder Treatment Center this past September 2016. Recently, I have left the center, yet still plan to remain active in the national and local Eating Disorder professionals community through consulting, lecturing, board positions, supervising and mentoring, along with taking time for myself.

Through my certification as a Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) through the International Association of Yoga Therapists, I will be offering Yoga therapy specialty training programs in eating disorders, as affiliated with Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy. I hope you will join me on my next retreat in Nicaragua, February 2018.

In addition, through my credentialing as an International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals (iaedp) Certified Eating Disorder Registered Dietitian Supervisor (CEDRD-S), I am available to provide supervision to registered dietitians on the traditional path to becoming a CEDRD.

It is said that Yogini’s don’t grow old, but grow wiser. I hope that you will find wisdom in my writings and look forward to keeping in touch through my blog, along with website and other social media outlets.

Sincerely,

Beverly
