Thank you Discouragement

There are many moods we can have throughout the day. One minute you can be up; one minute you can be down; one minute you can be up and then it's time for lunch. I have heard many times; it is not what happens to you, but how you react to it. We have all heard that. Isn't it easier said than done?
There are times when I have thought about how I reacted and wished I had made a different decision. Spending more time reading the Bible recently has provided me a different perspective and more patience.
I had something happen to me today. Nothing major I got a little discouraged. For about two hours.
I realized how unproductive I was being and pulled myself from the situation and decided to do something about it.
I took the focus off of myself and decided to serve someone else. I am so happy I decided to do that. Just that one thing changed my outlook on the rest of the day.
Again; much easier said than done. But today I can say 'done.'
