To find the SILVER LINING is something I’ve never actively done before. I never really thought about it, wondered how or why, I just dealt with whatever happened in total misery thinking I must be the unluckiest girl in the world. Never once prior to my own awakening did I ever stop to think that maybe it was all happening for a reason, and there might be something good in it for me. But what’s good for ME might not be good for YOU, so how can one person decide what’s good or bad for anyone other than for themselves? No situation applies to all people, because we are all unique. We are all here to experience different things for different reasons to help our Soul grow, with different meanings to the outcomes on things depending on our chosen journey. So don’t listen to anyone but yourself, and stop following others taking their predetermined judgment about everything.
What if something so random like my car breaking down on my way home from the job I just lost isn’t a bad thing at all for me. What if that led me to call the tow truck person, who started talking to me finding out I just lost my job and knew someone who was looking to hire, with a way better salary. Voila! An opportunity presented itself that would never have happened if my car hadn’t broken down.
If you think about it, first of all, how does it benefit you to throw a tantrum when something happens that you predetermine is bad before you even know what’s going on? It doesn’t feel good, you get nothing good out of it either, probably just a sore throat from all the yelling and cursing. And while you’ve been busy doing that you might have missed the opportunity that came from whatever happened.
Think about it. What if everything happens for a reason. If that’s something you don’t feel like you can believe right now, then at least try this, do you feel better feeling good all the time no matter the circumstance or do you feel better feeling bad?
Things happen beyond your control all the time and the only thing you can control is how you react to them. If you choose to react badly then that’s how it will feel, but if you would try to find the silver lining in everything that happens instead, then all of a sudden you are having a totally different experience.
Imagine feeling at the end of that day that your car breaking down was the best thing that happened that day! That way of positive thinking changes everything and all of a sudden you’re grateful it happened! How many times have you said to someone that what if I hadn’t done this or that then this amazing thing would never have happened!
Think about it. Once you start feeling grateful for things a whole new world will open up for you. Once you start to shift perspective knowing that things happen to help steer you right no matter what it looks like, your whole world will change. The more grateful you FEEL the more you will have to be grateful for, and feeling grateful is a really nice feeling.
By doing this simple thing you have transformed your negative way of seeing, living and thinking to a positive one and all you’ve done is changed how you choose to see and react to things. You have simply changed your perspective. Nothing else has changed. Just your own way of experiencing something that is happening anyway.
