A point had come in Shabani Faehnle's career where she felt underappreciated and wasn't getting the roles she wanted. Consequently, she realized she had been constantly complaining to everyone around her. She says she was unhappy with who she had become and decided to change. Through pure luck, she discovered a gratitude journaling app that drastically impacted her life. Each day, she spends a few minutes reflecting on what she is thankful for, and usually, the small things bring her happiness. As a result, she no longer complains to her friends, and a job promotion came her way, too. Listen to Shibani's transformation from frustrated with life to living with gratitude on Search and Replace.
