Pleasantly Surprised Instead of Disappointed

Here is another simply spiritual life hack for you. Try being pleasantly surprised when things work out how you would like instead of disappointed when they don’t. It’s a simple change in perception that can change how you feel about everything in life. Try it out and let me know in the comments how it goes!
