We live in a time where there are many distractions and so many people far and close are enduring hardship in one way or another. It is easy to let the influence of others impact our focus whether it be negative or positive. I choose to believe there is good and beauty everywhere. I choose this because I have seen the good and have felt the love of the Savior. I choose to pray to Heavenly Father often. I strive to keep the Holy Ghost near me. I choose to have the Lord be the one to influence, impact and guide me.
