I HATE DEPRESSION

I can fly

I also hate anxiety, I hate social phobia,  and I hate panic attacks.

There, I said it.

Those of you that have been following along on this journey of life with me know that I have struggled with agoraphobia.

I was able to kick that butt working at Walmart.

God and His odd sense of humor with me♥

Now I’m kicking  butt at the College cafeteria, where wave upon wave of students and staff come to our kiosk of five ladies slugging coffee♥

I told a few co workers at times it feels like I’m in the ER, and I need to minister a coffee to keep them going♥ Keep them alive♥ lol♥

We are so busy I can’t even begin to tell you. You have to witness it yourself to realize the extent of the  students and staff we serve.

Depression can make me go in slow motion. I have no time to be in slow motion at work, lol♥ Giggling away here.

Anxiety, panic attacks and social phobia is dealt with kindness and patience, plus forgiveness because I don’t always get it right and need to apologize, lol…♥ Also to accept the apology being given towards me.

Being in the fasting state at work also enables me to have mental clarity and able to find sustainable solutions  when I am facing anxiety, a panic attack and the social phobia with all the customers that are right before my eyes..

I’m learning on this journey of life that there are tools that will enable me to live a whole and healthy life style♥

Intermittent fasting is one of those tools that I plan on using for the rest of this journey of life I’m on.

FINDING ENRICHMENT

dscf1958

With my Flow Edition Toolbook I carry around my Travelor’s Notebook.

Here is a page taken from it.

Errands. Putting love in what you do makes everything BEAUTIFUL.

As I go about my day, I will focus on enrichment.

Oh how I would love to say my days do ‘flow’ like that,  but they don’t.

It looks more like how to enrich my life in the chaos that I’m dealing with.

I just stopped typing and inhaled the scent from my grandmother’s sweater I’m wearing

DSCF0549 .

I’ve just come back from sitting in the back yard by a fire I built. The scent of smoke is still lingering and I find it enriching to my senses♥

A train is  blowing it’s horn as I type this out and I find that enriching.

Makes me heart smile♥

I sat by the fire with God’s Word, a devotional and my Flow Edition.

Gloriously enriching.

Now to get back and deal with all the chaos that is around.

Sorry, I was interrupted in finishing this blog post with my husband telling me all he needs to do is dust the wood shavings off of him, put black marker on his teeth and he is ready to go shopping. Ya, whatever…

Off to shopping I go….

blessings, angela

I’M IN A CRISIS

IMG_0001

I’m learning that I’m ok  in a crisis because I got this.

I can do this.

Many of you that have been following with me on this journey of life has seen much changes going on in my life.

Not just with the weight release, but so many other ‘weights’ that I’ve carried around.

You have heard me talk about working on the KonMari Method and how ‘it’s life changing magic of tidying up’.  I’ve read both of Marie Kondo’s books and have begun to fold my clothes as she suggests. From time to time..lol.

I haven’t started the method but I’m definitely going to start with the clothes as she suggests when I do embark on it.

Someone from https://www.facebook.com/groups/thefast5dietandlifestyle/ suggested that I also read 7 (an experimental mutiny against excess) by Jen Hatmaker.

Since reading it, this has brought me into even more of a crisis.

Making me SO aware of the excess that is around that I don’t need.

I’m so thankful for Appetite Correction and this journey because it has brought me to a place where it’s helping me to let go not just the body weight, but the mind weights, and the spiritual weights I’ve carried around far too long.

It’s made me also see the commercialism and how I’ve fallen into the trap of it.

More, more, more .Bigger, bigger and better.

Is it really though?

I’m thrilled to be a part of http://www.bertherring.com/appetite-correction-for-life/ and being a Appetite Correction Certified Guide.

Correcting for life the ‘weights’ we have upon our lives and being set free from it all♥

To live a whole and healthy life. An enriched life♥

SOME OF US ARE SUPERHEROS

Aria Fierce

I was able to hold my grand baby for the very first time♥

JOY♥

It’s always joy though being in her presence.

Even when she is being fussy or as I tell her, ‘your just frustrated at the moment’♥

I’m in the presence of my superhero♥

I think about that with many of the children that are born at McMaster Children’s Hospital or are there because of a serious illness.

They may be but little, they are fierce.♥

They are superheros♥

I’m thankful also to  Ronald McDonald House https://www.facebook.com/RMHHamilton/

They help out the Superhero’s family’s with a place to stay close to the Hospital while their Superhero’s  busy fighting the good fight.

THE KONMARI METHOD

DSCF1947

For most people would take this as an advertment for Tim Horton’s but actually it’s The KonMari Method on how to fold clothes♥

lol…

I’m giving this shirt away, so before packing it up, I thought I would fold it the way Marie Konda shares in the book “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up” and “Spark Joy”.

I got them both from the Library yesterday when I went with Linda.

I’m going to try this process of releasing ‘stuff’ and never having to tidy again♥

I’ll be sharing with all of you as I go a long.

I’m excited and scared at the same time.

I’ve already been crying..lol…

And giggling….

I haven’t even finished the books yet but I believe Marie would be proud of me. I’m getting rid of some sentimental stuff now because without a doubt, these items no longer give me JOY at all.

In Marie Konda’s book, she states if each item invokes joy, keep it.

So I’m not going to even wait till I get to the last process in her book of going through sentimental stuff and seeing if they invoke joy in my life or not.

I already know, so out the door it goes♥ With a farewell of course, as she says in her books.

blessings, angela

 

 

READ THIS, IT MAY BE FOR YOU TOO

NSV (non scale victory) tonight!~

One month and one week later, I’m back to running♥

For the last three days I’ve been also back to power walking.

Sometimes this journey of weight release can seem like it is taking forever.

It is, because it is a life time.

Day in and day out.

Good days and bad days and so so days.

Some seasons in life fly by.

Like children growing up.

Other seasons seem like it will never stop.

We all have them.

I’m so thankful to have my big girl panties back on and not letting anything stop me from reaching the ‘goal’ (my goal is not an earthy goal♥).

I’m thankful for this life style of intermittent fasting.

Oh and by the way, I did NOT run in a fasted state…I’m giggling out loud here because I was loaded down with carbs and sugar but it was an AWESOME run.

Half hour later after my supper and dessert I went for my power walk /run and smiling from ear to ear at how wonderful my mind, body and spirit felt♥

It was a good victory tonight♥

blessings, angela
