1000 Flowers for the Planet - #421 Find the Silver Lining
Bad things happen all the time. We each go through our life journeys enjoying the good times and working our way through the bad times. None of us is immune to either end of the scale of experiences. Usually, though, there is a silver lining to be found – something good that we can take from the bad. It may be as straightforward as learning not to do something again, because that action gave you a bad result (don’t touch fire, for example). But when it comes to our planet and all the issues we face with global warming and plastics pollution, corruption and warmongering, it can be a lot harder to find the good in any of that. The silver lining may be that we learn from our actions. There is no change without change. We cannot keep doing the same things and expect different results. No Pollyannas – just plain old determination to make the best of any situation and make things better. What silver can you find in your life today? How will you use that silver to create a better world?
