Well today I became honest with my husband and I feel like a boulder has been lifted off me. See what I feel to admit to you all was that I have a problem with money, my eating addiction and my money actually go hand an hand. See I would spend all my money and then go and rob from peter to pay for paul. It is a vecious cycle I had going I could never get ahead or make up for what I took from one bill t pay for another. and what is so bad is that It comes from my eating , going to the fast food places add up and allways starting a different diet. For a cople a days I would be on one then I wouldn't be dieting then I would be back on a different diet. So I had DISHONESTY all the way around.
But tonight I did it I no longer have to continue this cycle I have. "I GET TO STOP!" And he did not act like I thought he would. My husband truly has Heavenly Father in his heart. I Thank him for his love and forgiveness. I do believe now I can move on to number 2 "HOPE" because now I feel "HOPE"
Now I can honestly give advice and feel good about it.

BE TRUTHFUL AND DONT WORRY ABOUT HOW THE OTHER PERSON IS GOING TO REACT BECAUSE YOU MAY BE SURPRISED

AND IT'S LIKE MY HUSBAND TOLD ME TAKE OWNERSHIP OF IT; ADMIT THE WRONG DOING AND HOW THE OTHER PERSON REACTS IS THEIR PROBLEM NOT YOURS. BE HONESTY THAT IS MY OWNERSHIP.

Good night to all and sweet dreams,
Gotaproblem



I FEEL WONDERFUL!!!!!

"I have come to know that thoughts, like water, will stay on course if we make a place for them to go. Otherwise, our thoughts follow the course of least resistance, always seeking the lower levels. Probably the greatest challenge and the most difficult thing you will face in mortal life is to learn to control your thoughts. In the Bible it says, as a man ‘thinketh in his heart, so is he’ (Prov. 23:7). One who can control his thoughts has conquered himself. As you learn to control your thoughts, you can overcome habits, even degrading personal habits. You can gain courage, conquer fear, and have a happy life. "

— Boyd K. Packer
