My Happily Ever After
**The following post is personal and talks of my mistakes. This is my journal, though, and so I am documenting it, along with the feelings I have today.**Good morning World. I have been carrying the weight of the world on my shoulders for the past few years. In so doing, I decided that I should stop wearing my sacred garments. I have not worn my garments for three years. I have also not been to the temple for 8 years, or so. I didn't take the Sacrament for a long time. Well, last night I went to talk to our amazing bishop. We call this "taking advantage of the Atonement of our Savior." I took advantage of the Atonement of my Savior last night. I began a process of repentance, of education, of humility, of doing better every single day. Before I left, he told me to go home and put my garments on. I sobbed. You know, when I took my endowments out, at 18 years old, I thought that garments were THE most uncomfortable things ever. It isn't until you can't/don't wear them that you understand the protection that the garment provides. I am literally clothed today, for the first time in a long time. I feel like I am on a spiritual high of epic proportions. Literally. There is no mortal, temporal thing/experience that could make me feel like I do today. I will be meeting with my bishop often, as I continue my process of repentance. I assured him that I am willing to do whatever is necessary. I want to return to the temple. I want to re-commit to the covenants I have made. I want to feel the spiritual high that only the temple can provide to us. I love the following talk by President Uchtdorf. I feel like a princess today!
