Words of wisdom

We’ve all heard the saying, “every cloud has a silver lining”. True enough, but the silver lining is sometimes not easy to see. Sometimes we have to take a good, hard look behind, around, and over the dark cloud in order to understand what good might come out of a bad situation. It was once said that ‘good people are good because they’ve come to wisdom through failure’. When we learn from our mistakes, the wisdom we gain is the silver lining. So, let’s be wise people and let each failure and each mistake be an opportunity to learn and grow. Today, keep a positive attitude and look for the good, even in bad situations. With something to think about, make it a great day. The choice is yours!
