Silver Lining

Too Many people miss the silver lining because they're expecting gold.
- Maurice Setter

There almost always is a silver lining if you look hard enough for it. It often can be hard if we are looking for "Perfect". You know that saying a bad day at the beach is still better than a day at work. I have found that setting my expectations lower often leads to some amazing events. I know that may sound anti -productive. Aren't we a society that says set your expectations high or you will never go anywhere? In some instances that os true, regarding education and jobs but when we look at how we spend our time or the receiving of "things" we need to modify and adjust. Having kids helps a great deal with this. Your time is not your own and you never know when you will have time. So make the best of whatever time you get when you get it. Gifts- expecting nothing means anything you get will be great! The perfect vacation, time and experience tells me and shows me that adversity in weather and circumstances if with in reason allows for a more meaningful experience.
Don't overlook the silver lining, it may be hiding the gold!
