Self-MASTERY

Masturbation is a topic that is highly sensitive, uncomfortable, and potentially embarrassing/ awkward.  Those things notwithstanding, I feel strongly enough about it that I created a short video to express my thoughts on the matter.  And let me reassure you that it is mature, tactful, and even appropriately and gently witty!

President Henry B. Eyring, or any of the LDS General Authorities, will never view this post.  But Justin Biebz and Jaden Smith remind me to “Never Say Never!”  So readers please know that if any apostle/ prophet/ Stake President/ Bishop/ employer/ long-lost cousin/WHOMEVER (!) ever did stumble (thanks Natasha B!) upon this video , I would not be uncomfortable.  In other words, IT’S CLEAN, YA’LL!  Check it stat:

and just a brief explanation of my outfit…

Recapture:

I don’t like this subject.

I am not a yucky girl.

I believe in agency.

I am fully aware that some will disagree with me.

I never intend to be preachy or judgmental.

But most importantly:

I strongly express that, whatever your religious beliefs/ life philosophies,

avoiding this type of behavior will bless your life!

Be Ye Clean…

Do not do anything else that arouses sexual feelings… in your own body.

Here is a landmark talk by Elder Boyd K. Packer on the matter:

(as it’s title explicates, the address was given for young men only,

but I feel comfortable including it since it is available on LDS.org)

I love how President Packer is not obscene,

but is still very direct and doesn’t hold back

(boldness, but not overbearance…)

To conclude this post, I wish to bear testimony that,

no matter your age, gender, religion, or beliefs

you will be happier if you keep your mind

and body free of this activity!

And ask the Master for help if you need it.

Sometimes telling the truth is terribly painful, uncomfortable, embarrassing, and inconvenient,

BUT IT HAS TO HAPPEN!

“The truth will set you free”

~John 8:23

“The truth can be ugly beyond imagination,

but concerning such topics as abuse, we simply CANNOT ignore it.

It may set others free as well.  Figuratively and literally.”

Read more here about an insight that Mr. Mayer helped me understand regarding the Penn State child abuse controversy.

READERS:

How do these principles/ideas apply to YOU?

And I know that they do somehow.

Truth.

Though I rarely (if ever) use profanity, a certain Halloween costume is a BITCH!

I’ll let the video speak for itself:

Regina George may think people can wear whatever they want on October 31st.

ImageBut Katherine Anne does NOT!

There are many beautiful, wonderful things in life in which to find humor & joy.

The Holocaust is NOT one of them.

If you agree with me (and you should!), please spread this message/post anyway that you can.

Oh, also I read a book by the German LDS General Authority F. Enzio Busche. 

It changed my life.

  Must write about it soon.  Until then, here’s a wonderful video by him:

But back to costumes (bookending again!),

here is one of my personal favorites of my own:

Strong women are hot, ya’ll.

Click here for some of my other Halloween hits (literally!) and misses…

And speaking of, if somebody’s costume offends you,

don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself.

Take a tip from my friend (pictured above!) Rosie (the Riveter).

And to sum up in one brilliant phrase my beliefs on costumes,

allow me to quote from THE greatest playwright of all time.

“There is much truth in jest (for good and for bad)”

~William Shakespeare

Now it’s time for a little text-to-self connection (my favorite part!):

Righteous Readers: what do your Halloween Costumes say about you (for good and for bad)?

PS.  If you think the fact that there is a Picture of a Pumpkin on this Post (about Halloween!) is a coincidence, THINK AGAIN.

Myth vs. Experience

Image

The clash between myth and experience can be disillusioning, frustrating, and embarrassing.  No guarantees, but perhaps once we’ve encountered and accepted the let-down and seen the world for how it really is, perhaps there is still life to be lived and love to be had….
