Silver linings. The visual that jumps into my mind is one of a dark cloud that is looming and threatening to cause havoc as it unleashes its fury…yet all around the edges there is a bright sliver of light that appears to be silver in color. That sliver is, in fact, the sun shining brightly behind the cloud, peaking just beyond the cloud to give us the hope of a “silver lining”.
Notice how Anna recognizes the silver lining in her experience. As you do, are you recognizing yours?
“I had hoped to see my final term through July 7th as I am incredibly passionate about giving back, not just to my alma mater, but to a community that has gone above and beyond to support me, my dreams, my ambitions. Even through the tough times there has always been that extra calming west Texas hug that reminds me that no matter how this all ends, TTU and my colleagues taught me – my work is important, but it will never be the fulfillment or purpose we need to add value and true character to our own life. I guess we could refer to our relationships here as our very own silver lining.”
