It has been a good week.  But let me backtrack about two weeks to a less-good week.

I was stressed.  I was tired.  The old S.A.D Monster was rearing its ugly head and threatening me not only with an ugly winter, but with total personal failure.  (Depressed people aren't known for their great sense of perspective.)

SO I prayed.  I went to the temple.  I talked with loved ones.  And I made a chart of all my favorite crazy-busting weapons, along with boxes to check off every day.  Here they are, in no particular order.

Up at 6AM
Read Scriptures
Free Time
TJ Time
Essential Oils
Temple (Weekly)

I haven't been able to check them all off, not even once.  But I feel so much better just for hitting a few every day.  They're all biggies, but I'd say the temple and free time and essential oils they're all biggies.
