1) Check yourself as to how often you complain about something that in the grand  scheme of things is really quite inconsequential?

2) Then turn it around and make it an opportunity to be thankful.  You’ll be glad you did and so will those around you.

3) Then take it one step further and consider sponsoring a child through World Vision or Plan.  Helping others is a great way to bring life’s problems into perspective.
