Gratitude day 13

Since I don't have internet at home, I have to leave the weekend posts till Monday

Today I am grateful for :
per·spec·tive [per-spek-tiv] :
the state of one's ideas, the facts known to one, etc., in having a meaningful interrelationship

namely with the gospel and life.
it is so easy to get caught up in trying to be perfect, or nearly perfect or to portray that our lives are so.
to try to take the best dessert to the game night you were invited to.
to try to have the cutest outfit,
or the best stories,
or the best whatever it may be.
we all want to impress others, but when it really comes down to it, if we have the right perspective,
we really only need to impress our Father in Heaven.
we really just need to have the right perspective of why we are here.
to help others, to be Christlike, to obey the commandments, and be good examples along the way.
when you have the right perspective, life doesn't seem as hard.
The key is just keeping the right perspective.
when we get down to the basics, and the fundamentals of the gospel, and we live those,
this is where we gain perspective.
