There will often be times when you believe that you have reached the bottom of your despair. But, strangely enough, there is always a silver lining in every black cloud.. Something good always occurs – you just have to be looking for it and grasp it when it appears.
This silver lining is more likely to appear more quickly if you can remain positive. The silver lining is not always that obvious; sometimes you will think that there is absolutely nothing good able to come from this trauma you are experiencing. As long as you have these thoughts, the more likely you are to be correct!
You have to constantly look for the silver lining in every black cloud. It may seem small and of no real importance, but grab it anyway; it is just waiting for you to find it. Perhaps it can even be found in others.
I was fortunate when I suffered from my stroke and brain tumour to be able to find silver linings in a variety of places. Let me tell you how I did this.
TIPS AND HINTS
Your ability to help and support others may be the very silver lining you need. We tend to look for something that will assist us without realizing that by us helping others, we are in fact helping ourselves to recover and cope.
