It's Over

Women's Conference is over for another year. I enjoyed it! The best part was that I got to meet so many of you who follow Good News! D4 is still here with me and we have been shopping all day (As Sister Oaks instructed us--a little retail therapy!) But Monday I'll try to recap the conference.

The only bad thing is that I went over on my time. I don't know how I managed to do that, but I was feeling awful about it and have been using the Truth Tools to try not to cause myself so much pain. But I am discovering new things. In a case like this where my going over infringed on Sister Clayton's time, I feel like I need to inflict myself with the pain. But what good does beating myself up do? It doesn't change the reality of what happened. It doesn't make her feel better. It doesn't make it up to her. The more I study unnecessary pain the more interesting it becomes. Such a strange thing.

I am consoling myself  with the fact that something good can come out of it; next year I can be used as the bad example for everyone to learn from!

I'm sure nobody really cared that you went over, since you're so enjoyable to listen to. Hope you have a great Sabbath day. :)

Don't worry about it! Think of it as a blessing to those of us that were there. We all got 75 wonderful minutes instead of just 60! I count myself as being blessed by that extra few minuutes!

I know what you mean about causing additional or unnecessary pain. I am learning about this in my life too. Satan will use any way he can to cause us unhappiness.
