I always look at things differently and end up being sad because of my pessimistic characteristic.

I think the best thing that you can do is count your blessings, hunt the good stuff, whatever you want to call it. Each day, before you go to bed, spend some time - maybe 15-20 minutes - reflecting on the day. No cell phone, no computer, no TV, nothing. Just you and a journal. Think about things that happened throughout the day and identify good things that happened; someone holding a door for you, a kind word from a family or friend or coworker, etc. Why will this help? You've probably heard that the best predictor of the future is the past, right?
If you can't think of anything though (which you won't not be able to?), just the fact that you're alive, tomorrow is another day, and you have another opportunity then to find good things in your life.1
