A Story of a Cloudy Day and the Silver Linings
Dark Cloud: My alarm doesn’t go off and I have to get ready for work at supersonic speed.
Silver Lining: I got an extra 45 minutes of beautiful, glorious sleep.
Dark Cloud: I spilled coffee on my shirt in my haste and have to change.
Silver Lining: That shirt looks horrible on me anyway, what was I thinking?
Dark Cloud: Something in my car is making a funny noise.
Silver Lining: My car gave me a warning sound instead of just spontaneously dying on me, giving me time to get it fixed.
Dark Cloud: It’s raining.
Silver Lining: I just bought a super sweet new umbrella!
Dark Cloud: I forgot it at home.
Silver Lining: At least I still have my old one.
Dark Cloud: It’s broken.
Silver Lining: My walk to my office is short and a little rain never hurt anyone. My hair was already a disaster and at least now I have an excuse.
Dark Cloud: I have so much work to do today and my inbox is completely overflowing.
Silver Lining: I have a job that I enjoy and I am confident enough in myself to believe that I am capable enough to get it all done.
Dark Cloud: I forgot my lunch at home, probably next to my poor umbrella.
Silver Lining: Schlotzkys has a delicious new special!
Dark Cloud: I forgot my wallet (I am lucky I remembered to wear shoes apparently).
Silver Lining: My co-worker owes me money and a lunch invite is the perfect way to collect and hang out.
Dark Cloud: My computer has a virus and needs to be wiped clean.
Silver Lining: Well, at least I remembered to back everything up regularly.
Dark Cloud: My family is un-expectantly coming for a visit and my home looks like a tornado combined with a hurricane hit it.
Silver Lining: I have a family that loves and visits me and we will have a good time despite the mess.
Dark Cloud: We play euchre and I lose.
Silver Lining: I love playing euchre anyway.
Dark Cloud: Another day is over and it’s time for bed.
Silver Lining: I get to look forward to tomorrow; another day full of potential and possibilities.
