Day 52. Pockets of happiness. When things get hard my mother would always say just find a pocket of happiness. Meaning, have something that you look forward to. It could be a vacation or a day off of work, or spending time with a friend. Anything that fuels your inner happy can be a pocket of happiness. After a long Monday, my pocket of happiness is looking towards a nice restful weekend. Every day is something different. The excitement of not knowing what blessing is around the corner should be a pocket of happiness.
What's on my mind. Trying to see things from someone else's point of view. I really think this would solve a lot of disagreements. It actually seems like the conclusion of a disagreement is when each party can see the other persons point of view. Sometimes we have to step outside of ourselves to understand where someone else is coming from. This is extra hard for stubborn people or people who think they know everything. It could be as simple as trying to understand how another person views the situation or feels. In life we have to work together for the better good of everything and everyone. The challenge today is to think of the one person you don't get along with, but is apart of your life in some way. Now, try to visualize their side of the situation, putting your feelings aside. Today I will leave you with a verse.

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves,
