Bishop's Words of Wisdom

Today our Bishop spoke in Sacrament Meeting and he gave such a wonderful message that applies to all of us in this life. He talked about how when we get off track (whatever it may be) we all tend to focus on the "why did we get off, how did we get off, and when did we get off?" Instead we need to focus on how do we get back on track. He spoke about when people come into his office with a problem (been there!) they are so consumed with the past. In order to heal and become whole again we need to forget about how we got there and focus on how we can heal and become better. Such a simple message but I think it is something that sometimes we forget. We make decisions every day of our  lives. Decisions cannot be reversed. Accept them. If they are wrong you can't reverse them but you can take action to make them better. Somtimes we do have to re-evaluate the past but the majority of time we need to stop worrying about the past and move onto the future. We can't change what has happened good or bad in this life, it's done. May we all move on to the future. Focus on what we can do better and how we can become better each day. I have many things that I strive to do better each day. I have daily set backs but I re-evaluate, learn from what I did wrong, and strive to do better again. I'm still not perfect, dang it! haha. Our husband's pornography addiction is part of our life. We don't want it to be, but it is. Accept it, start learning how to heal, and happiness and peace will come again.
- PS: There is a film trying to raise money that I will be posting more about soon. Here is their website until I can get you more details. I am REALLY thankful someone is putting this out. It is desperately needed. Hope you will get behind this with me.
