Conference Weekend Guilt

Is it just me? Am I the only one that feels guilt after watching conference? Is it possible to feel so lifted up and so much sorrow at the same time? I really don't think that it is meant that way. It seems like one talk is given that gets me all rev'ed up then BAM! the next one comes and I want to crawl in a hole. I would like to take this moment to thank my Ma for having the guilt gene ingrained in me forevermore. I'm just sayin'...

It is amazing how strong your testimony can grow listening to the council of the Prophet. Don't you just love Pres. Monson?! Even my spawn enjoyed it! I wish He-Who-Shall-Remain-Nameless could have heard what was said. It would have been good for him to know that he is not alone and his life will not get better until he pulls his head out! Again...I'm just sayin'...

In a small way, I am greatful for that guilt gene, (in a small way) I guess it does keep me on the straight and narrow, well...it doesn't KEEP me there, me testimony keeps me there, but the guilt gene does give a much needed kick in the pants when I seem to get into life's little ruts. Elder Anderson said "The keeping of testimonies in these days will be a badge of honor through all the eternities", what a great thing that is! I hope that I am wearing that badge of honor, but I am sure that I will be so humble that I will not see it! I can't let you all think that I am going soft! That I am spiritual! I can't have that now can I!!!

I felt like every talk was directed towards me. I kept thinking, "How do they know I stink at that (and like you said) need a kick in the pants?" I both loved it and felt bad at the same time too!

That is funny...I was just discussing how I wonder what others get out of Conference because I always feel like they are speaking DIRECTLY to me! :)

I am right there with you sister...Usually about a week after conference I have a panic attack about how horrible of a person I am because I cant do everything perfectly like I feel like I should and then Eric has to calm me down and remind me to just take one step at a time...guilt gene kills me!(well, it will kill me eventually one day)
