This isn't new for me though.. and I'm sure if you know me you'll agree.
My mind is constantly thinking about something. I'm learning to focus though. If you asked my mom she'd tell you how I can do 500 things at once, leave a trail wherever I go (she can always tell when I'm home), and am always on the go. This past week though I've really been reminded to STOP and focus. Focus on whats most important that is: like family and how I'm so blessed to have these people I call "family" in my life. Focus on love and giving gratitude for the many evidences of love that God sheds everywhere. For example: the love I feel when many people feel love and compassion for ONE lady who is in the hospital; In unity praying and fasting that her and her family will be okay. Or in those moments when you feel overwhelmed with all the mistakes we make daily.. but remember that someone: Jesus Christ, has made it possible that we can live happily despite the mistakes we make. Or even just a beautiful sunrise that by some miracle you were able to be awake for and witness.
I know I'm not perfect and make many mistakes just like every other human being. But I hope I can be better at remembering the simple things that bring real meaning in our lives. I'm thankful for the gospel of Jesus Christ which reminds me of these simple things we have to enjoy in life like: family, repentance, joy, hope, peace, etc.

This post may not even make sense or is in order, but I hope at least you get out it to remember the simple things. I'm not perfect at it by far, but hope I can be better :) Have a great day!
