I believe life (and your outlook on it) is what you make of it. I am an optimistic dreamer, I keep my head in the clouds and my eyes open for that silver lining at all times. Some days that lining proves to be more elusive than others, it may be peeking behind a cloud or slightly more faded than normal, but it is always out there.
Then, every now and again, you happen on to one of those different sort of days. The days where you are almost blinded by that same omnipresent silver lining. It strikes you like a bolt of lighting and refuses to be ignored.
Those are the days you wrap up, ever so tightly; the ones you cling to and the sheer memory of them provides you with just enough spark to get you through those darker days.
Save them up like fireflies in a jar. Feed them with your passion and fuel them with every possibility you can send their way. It turns out the more you seek that silver lining and the more you focus on those brighter times …
the more of those days will come your way.
Seek out beauty and light and love and kindness. Concentrate on the things that really matter to you and the ones you love and let all that other stuff just fade away. The friends who speak down to you, the hearts you will never win, the troubles that all the worries in the world can not change. Let them go, let them roll right off your back like a duck in a silver pond. Find that path that makes you feel like you are right where you belong and don’t you ever lose sight of it. Focus all your time and energy there.
I find myself wandering my own path these days — the way is lighted and I am loving all the sunshine here.
