I've been a seriously bad girl when it comes to taking care of my blog this past few months. It's been rough though, I've had some really hard days in there, and I didn't feel like blogging. Insane, right? I love blogging, but I hate blogging when I'm super depressed or down I discovered. I try to be a cheerful upbeat person, and when my blogs can't show that person, I've got nothing.
I'm only blogging today because guilt has been nagging at me over letting my blog get all old and gray. Plus, I've got some really good stuff going on right now that I want to share. I hate bullies. Did you know that? And I won't put up with them. I even put together a PowerPoint presentation and took it to my daughter's school to talk about bullying and how you could be one to stop it. The teachers loved it so much they recommended that I show it to the 5th and 4th grades as well, and even encouraged me to show other schools. It was exhilarating and terrifying both at the same time. Part of me didn't want to go through with it because I knew it would be an epic fail, the other part of me was stoked to finally be presenting the information to the kids. The excited part of me won out, and I showed up and presented what I had, obviously, lol.
And, in other news, I had an amazing spiritual experience today and I'm sharing with you guys. I'm not one to be easily touched by the Spirit (or whatever you call it, nor do I cry easily at things, but I saw a talk given today that had me in tears, it was so beautiful. I'm Mormon, and this was in what we call General Conference. It talks about mental illness and what we can do to help and support those living with it
