70 days clean today. Glory be to God. Still striving to ensure all aspects of my life are in balance. I still believe that staying morally clean is managing our impulses before they get out of control.


Thoughts on impulses and compulsions.    
"Its pretty much the same thing. But I see an impulse as the inclination to do something. By definition, a compulsion is the next stage where after entertaining the inclination it becomes irresistible force to do something about it. I consider this the danger zone. If I can manage the impulses, I can stay clear of compulsions to do or when it can become even difficult to resist."

"Just as the landfill requires dedicated work and attention, laboriously applying layer after layer of fill to reclaim the low-lying ground, our lives also require the same vigilance, continually applying layer after layer of the healing gift of repentance.…Our Father in Heaven and His Son, Jesus Christ, feel sorrow when we choose to remain in sin, when the gift of repentance made possible through the Atonement can clean, reclaim, and sanctify our lives. When we gratefully accept and use this precious gift, we can enjoy the beauty and usefulness of our lives... "
