Hey everyone! I know I have not posted in a while. Life has been crazy stressful with work and school! This is actually what today’s topic is. Where do you go when you want to clear your mind? Who do you go to when you need to talk?
I do not go to the same place every time. I either go to the Mesa temple or I will go for a drive. Sometimes driving around and listening to music helps. Other times I feel the need to go to the temple and sit on the benches in front of the temple and think. Tonight as I write this I am sitting at the temple. Sitting alone and thinking can be great, but sometimes it can add to the stress. Sometimes I need to talk to some of my friends.
I have some of the greatest friends in the world. I know I can text them or call them anytime. I am super thankful for my friend, Marnae. Without her I would be a total basket case. I have talked to her about everything from body issues to boy troubles. There were some times when she would stay up with me until 2 or 3 in the morning, just to work things out. I definitely can’t thank her enough for everything she has done for me! My other friend, Walker* has been a saint the past couple months. He deserves an award! I have texted him about my worries about a baby I know, my struggles with trigonometry, and much more. He has been such a great listener and so sweet to me through everything. I have more wonderful friends that I have spoken to and am so thankful for every one of them!
Going to the temple or for a drive and talking to friends are not the only things that I do when I am feeling stressed. If you want to see what else has helped me you can read the following post!

Have a wonderful week!
