triggering AGAIN....d@$#! this sucks .....I kind of want to hit up old fling so I can have that spark on a boring fri night......hate this. Or any fling....can't believe how my thoughts switch so quick. Sometimes just want to live any way I desire. Do it my way.


Why dont you:    
"Get a hobby, job, workout routine, class, etc. I think when I have too much free time, that's definitely the biggest times a cave in. My thoughts always go to porn and all that. But when im busy, I really dont have a problem with it."

"I would get a hobby you have too much time on your hands it sounds like and when one has to much time on their hands that is dangerous. I agree with mint."

"I agree with LIBERATION. Find something productive to do that gets you out of the rut of thinking about what you need and want."

"maybe I didn't mean what I said...I feel my life is very busy. I'm a mom, wife, etc....I was super stressed out last night so maybe "bored" wasn't really the word, more like I get sick of daily stresses in life....Thanks for your comments. I wish I had free alone time but hard when your a mom and wife and are very needed by so many...;) BUT I'm grateful to have this chance also. Yes @ Mint-exercise is very important! I do work out and love it."

"Oh Marie!
I empathize!

That ugly rut. Sometimes I feel like I am in some kind of funk that I can't shake. It is often when life is busy and yet the drudgery and the stressful weight of it is so awful.

In one of those moments, a very wise man once told me, "When you find yourself in a funk....that is when you need to find something in your life that you can put on the altar of sacrifice for Heavenly Father."

That one single piece of advice ended up changing so much in my life. I think what it can turn into is very personal for each individual. Perhaps it is a hobby or exercise. Maybe it is giving up caffeine or something tangible, or maybe it isn't giving something up at all!...maybe it is taking on something more in your life.

Regardless, now when I feel in a rut....I ask the Lord what I can sacrifice for Him....and then do it. It has never failed.

"Now, my brothers and sisters, let not Jesus’ redemption for us stop at the immortalizing dimension of the Atonement, “the loosing of the bands of death”. Let us grasp the proffered gift of eternal life! We will end up either choosing Christ’s manner of living or His manner of suffering! It is either “suffer even as I”, or overcome “even as [He] … overcame”. His beckoning command is to become “even as I am”. The spiritually settled accept that invitation, and “through the atonement of Christ,” they become and overcome! "

— Neal A. Maxwell
