Silver Linings

Of all the gifts my parents have given me over the years, the one I appreciate most right now is the ability to make the best of whatever situation I am in, to find silver linings in the storm clouds. I can't always control what happens in my life, but I can control how I respond and what I react to. Finding the positive aspects of change makes it easier to respond with gratitude, to stay open to new opportunities, to keep my stomach from tying itself in knots.
