Satan, get thee hence!!!

That nasty little devil is working on me tonight.

I look through some other people's blogs, including some from my ward--and I see such wonderful, truly wonderful people. People living right. Doing what they should be doing. And I start to get down on myself. I start to feel neglected and blue. Then I realize who's really playing games in my head. That old adversary is so sneaky and mean. There's only one thing to do...... "Remember the worth of souls is great in the sight of God." D&C 18:10

I think everyone feels this way at some time or another. Hang in there!

I totally agree with Kristina we all feel this way sometimes.
The worst thing any of us can do is to compare ourselves with someone else.
Blogs tend to show the best side of peoples lives too - in general.
So don't be hard on yourself. You are awesome!!!!

dear Satan,
GO AWAY!! Take your trash and get out of Mikki's head!!
You are evil and WE don't like you!!

Dear Mikki,

Erin and Marc Dudley said...

Ditto ! I love you Mikki! PS he gets us ALL at times. What is great is how fast you recongized the difference in how you felt and decided to banish him. :) Great job, and great example of strength to me.

xx Erin

Come on over and be trashy with me... oh wait, this is a post to STOP being trashy :-(
Mikki, you have to know that we all come here and look at you and wish we could be more like you, don't you? I mean seriously, if we all blogged how much we stink at parenting/church callings/being a wife, who would read? That's what Face book and emails are for... letting it all show, the good bad and the really ugly. (I've recently deleted one post and one face book update because my ugly nasty me showed herself).
*hugs* from someone who thinks you are pretty terrific!!!

I think the thing you have to remember about blogging is people are only blogging their best. You are an amazing person and I admire many things about you. Hang in there, we all have bad days!:)

a happy heart blog. said...

You know you can't be alone Mikki. It does happen to all of us - it's good that you recognize when he's getting at you. I've always loved those Mormon ads - those two are perfect. Take care you awesome mom yoU!

Amy J. said... have to remember that most people don't blog like you and I do. They just show the happy stuff and that's great, but really everyone else has poopy days too! They just don't share it with the world like we do! Love ya girl!

All of us feel that way at one time or another. It really makes me mad at Satan when I realize it's him putting those doubts in my head. Makes me want to fight back. We just have to remember who we are.
