TIPS ON LIVING A MORE HOPE-FILLED LIFE:
1. Keep a "gratitude journal." Write a list of the things you are grateful for each day.
2. Say "thank you." Those who express gratitude to others are happier than those who don't (proven in scientific studies!).
3. Stop trying to fix other people. This tends to create resentment, diminishing our sense of gratitude,
4. Turn every complaint into appreciation. For example, when faced with some-one with whom you don't get along, find something about that person to appreciate.
