You stub your toe, but you didn’t break it.
You got in a car accident, but no one was hurt.
Your father passed away, but he lived a great life.
Your mother passed away, but she’s no longer in pain.
You lost your job, but here’s an opportunity to find something better.
Your partner leaves you, but nows your chance to start anew.
That silver lining can go a long way and shine brightness in the darkest of places, bringing hope, positivity and possibly mental rebirth.
I’m not saying to focus only on the silver lining, but to just acknowledge and appreciate it for what it can do for your mental strength.
Appreciate both sides and universal balance will shine more than you would expect.
