Unfriendly Advice.

I deactivated my account on Facebook. I thought I would have this huge weight off my shoulders. I think its slowly lifting.

Part of me is like, Wait! I have something I NEED to share with the world! Not really, bummer news or blah moods really are best shared with the people I have in my life to lend support and care. I kept finding myself getting angry or hostile toward people.

My advice to you, if you are thinking about changing something in your life that is giving you stress or causing your mind to worry, try to figure out what you can do about it - to ease your burden. Instead of carrying it.

My last blog post and this one sound like downers dont they? Oops! Although, I dont really want to only blog the good stuff, that would be kinda cheating.

Some good things:
- Erick and I had a meeting with Jed's teachers and school peeps, it went well, we have a game plan for him, and I feel like now, the teachers are on the same page with what they are doing for him each day. And I do feel better as well.
- Sunday at church Jed bore his testimony in Sacrament for the first time. It was so sweet. What was interesting to me was that this was the 2nd month where he asked/wanted to do it. He almost got grumpy, and I think he was struggling with how powerfully he felt the Spirit. Im not a huge fan of a bunch of kids running up to the podium to say stuff, but I think there is a certain age where its a good idea to do it and he did very well. Plus then Erick shared his and that was very nice to hear as well.
- We were recently planning on moving out of our little townhouse and renting a larger place, but made the decision now to stay, and Im excited! Its a smaller place, but gives us time to save more money, and we bought ourselves a new bed, and a couch and painting is next on the list. I like the idea of making things feel more like home here.

I wish I could have been there to hear Jed bear his testimony for the first time. How special :) Have fun with the painting. I am glad I am done with that little thrill ride for a while :)

Awww, love it when the little ones bear their testimony. I bore mine on Sunday, too. It was a bit of a downer for me though...I think most of our Branch was in shock...LOL!

Good for you for deleting FB. That was hard I'm sure but it can be such a time waster and you are's so easy to pick ourselves apart!!!
