Once, after the kids were gone to school, and Derek was off to work, I was trying to decide what to do.  There are always plenty of choices and, as is often the case, I was trying to decide which was the "right" one.  I had been feeling a little low for a few days.  Should I read a particular book?  Should I study the scriptures more?  Should I exercise?  Work outside?  Write? Play an instrument?  Go do some grocery shopping?  Call someone?  There are always things to choose from.  I was feeling frustrated and discouraged.  What should I do? 

Finally, I desperately sent up a prayer asking what I should do and, in one of the most clear answers to prayer I have ever received, I heard the words, "Do Something!"  It was so clear that I laughed out loud.  I knew I had been over thinking things again.  I immediately got busy doing something.  I don't remember what.  What I do remember is that the discouragement I had been carrying around disappeared, and I was happy.  Sometimes, the right thing to do, is to simply do something!

Great advice! I love how you sought the Lord to receive inspiration and He advised you just as you would have your own children, "Just do something!"
