Life is full of cloudy days--actual and figurative. Thankfully it really is true that some of them have silver linings. A few that I've discovered recently--
Wearing the comfortable shoes instead of the really cute ones may feel
like a cloud in the morning, but it definitely feels like a silver
lining when there's a downpour on your walk home.
Change in routine may make you feel very cloudy. Thankfully, the new
things you get to try because your routine has changed can shine a whole
lot like a silver lining.
Kids going away for part of the summer may make you feel that there's a
cloud that just won't clear. But your resulting ability to focus on
everything else can be a very worthwhile silver lining.
Not being able to find caramel swirl ice cream is a cloud. Buying
caramel sauce to go on vanilla ice cream gives you a silver lining that
lasts way past that original carton of vanilla.
Feeling always a little in limbo may be a cloud. Keeping alert in the limbo game--and in life--is the silver lining.
Every so often, responsibilities (even writing a daily blog) can
feel like a cloud. Three (reasonably) happy children, interesting work, and almost 700
posts later, I can say for sure that some of the best things happen when you
clear the clouds--and look for that silver lining.
