MY CHALLENGES

I’m struggling. I miss posting every single day. I miss the accountability. I miss the interaction. I miss you all so much!

I’m also grateful that I have taken this break from posting Positive Affirmations and videos every day on Social Media. This Summer break is something I needed to do for myself that I didn’t realize I needed to do until I took that step.

“I will focus on feeling the joy that my journey of empowerment brings as I build my process and achieve my goals.” Appetite Correction for Life Workbook, Dr. Bert Herring and Dr. Judi Herring.

Back in 2018, I changed the word “goals” to “challenges”. My perspective back then was I failed at all my Goals. While with my Challenges that I set for myself, I saw progress, consistency and sustainable success.

I have a healthier and a more positive outlook on the word Goals now. I no longer look back and see that I had failed with my Goals but I had given up, given in, lost hope, trust and belief that I was worthy of succeeding at whatever I had set out to do. Unhelpful Thinking Style!~ Right there!

I WILL be focusing this Summer on feeling the joy this journey of LIFE here on Earth has to offer. Embracing the empowerment as I continue to build my process of living an Intermittent Fasting and thrifted lifestyle and achieve my goals that I have set for myself.

Be blessed beautiful People,

Angela

FEARLESS FRIDAY

Fearless Friday!

A day where I commit to pause and pray for you and yours. I hold you close in my thoughts and my prayers. Covering you with blessings, love, strength, peace, and goodness. Before I even began to type this out, I’ve been praying and crying out for peace, for justice, for healing, for vindication.

Today I ask you, pause and pray for me and mine. Linking arm in arm, shield to shield.

I know my prayers and intentions are not ignored, dismissed or forgotten. At times I struggle with the time frame, the waiting, and the trusting. It’s a struggle this journey of life here on Earth.

I do know God Almighty is a good, good Father, that is who He is!~ So I keep that perspective when the pathway is rough and full of chaos.

They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the Lord to care for them. They are confident and fearless and can face their foes triumphantly.” ~ Psalm 112:7-8 NLT

PEACE

I’m challenging myself to stop being agitated and disturbed.

Not permitting myself to be fearful and intimated and cowardly and unsettled.

Peace and calm within in the midst of the chaos in the circumstances, on this journey of life here on Earth.

Yard Sales and Garage Sales!~

Back in the day, this yard sale diva was out thrifting every Saturday from 7 am till 12 with her bestie.

Things have changed over the years. Now I’m having the one having plant/yard/garage sales instead of going to them.

This Saturday, my brother and I will be holding a Garage Sale at my Dad’s place.

We have some awesome treasures, especially for music lovers, hockey and baseball card collectors, plus furniture, electrical gadgets and some awesome name Brand clothing for adults. Also will have jewelry, shoes, golf clubs, books, and magazines.

I know I’m forgetting items, plus adding more to the list come this Saturday the 18th.

I will be posting pictures and items that we will be selling on Market Place as well as my personal FB page and Instagram.

If you are close, come and stop by this Saturday.

FEARLESS FRIDAY


Welcome to Fearless Friday’s!

A day where I commit to pause and pray for you and yours. I hold you close in my thoughts and my prayers. Covering you with blessings, love, strength, peace, and goodness. 

Today I ask you, pause and pray for me and mine. Linking arm in arm, shield to shield.

I believe in the power of prayer. I believe in the power of intentions.

I’ve started a challenge in April to start writing out on a daily basis in a journal prayers and intentions that were close to my heart. It’s June and I haven’t stopped that challenge. I’m finding it a blessing as well as a tool that helps bring much healing for my mind, body and spirit.

I’ve been able to see many answers and sustainable solutions come about from the prayers and intentions that have filled the pages of this journal.

I’ve been writing out prayers and intentions for those of you that need physical healing, that need affordable living, that are struggling with a diagnosis and need solutions, those that are in need of justice and favour in their lives, those of us dealing with CERB, the financial stress and burden. For those of us grieving the loss of a loved one. Praying for mental health, anxiety and depression. For the homeless.

It can be so overwhelming the cares of this world. So many hurting. So many broken down and forgotten.

I know my prayers and intentions are not ignored, dismissed or forgotten. I believe in the God of the Universe and Galaxy and I call Him Abba. Father God.

They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the Lord to care for them. They are confident and fearless and can face their foes triumphantly.” ~ Psalm 112:7-8 NLT

NARROW PATH

“I see my uniqueness and affirm my value and worth. When I undertake the activity of making comparisons, I’ll compare myself with myself over time and use growth as my measure of success.” Appetite Correction for Life Workbook, Dr. Judi Herring and Dr. Bert Herring.

June till September I’m limiting my time spent on Facebook and Instagram. I had been posting on a daily basis, sometimes numerous times, for months. Positive affirmations from AC4L Workbook, plus my own affirmations I created over the last four years while working at Value Village and being a part of the intermittent fasting and thrifting community.

I am now planning on spending time blogging a little more consistently and at my YouTube Channel “Angela Redekop”. Posting and sharing as much goodness and love as I can.

HERE I AM

Grand Opening of Value Village in my home town!~ June 5, 2018!~

Exciting times for our Community.

Exciting times for me and my “dream gig”, retiring at a thrift store!

Hallelujah!~

This day also brought face to face meetings for the first time in the isles of Bed and Bath and Women’s Clothing. Women that had connected through Social Media but never had met face to face, until the Grand Opening!

Two women from the States, one driving all the way from Arkansas, and the 3rd woman living in my home town just blocks from me but never being in the same circles of living. That is not until intermittent fasting brought us all together.

I had the privilege of meeting Anneke, Leona and Roni, sharing my love for #intermittentfasting and #thrifting

Here I am, four years later still living an intermittent fasting and thrifted lifestyle. Still sharing and passionate about it. At the moment I’m taking a vacation from sharing my Positive Affirmations on Facebook and Instagram for the Summer.

I’ve chosen this time away to create and build an oasis in the backyard, spend enriching times with loved ones, and making plans for a Workshop starting late September. More on that later on…
