My Silver Linings Playbook - Tay Meets World

My Silver Linings Playbook

12:00:00 AM

It's no secret that I've been absent from this side of blogland for awhile. I have been trying to put a post together for weeks and I finally feel like I know what I want to say. Life has been rough. No, I take that back, life has been at its worst these past few weeks. Things that I never imagined would happen, have occurred and I have been holding on to my last bit of hope for dear life. Relationships have ended, friendships lost, work has taken it's toll, and sadness has exhausted every muscle in my body.

Someone recently told me that they always try to find the silver lining in any problem/issue/concern. I laughed when I heard that because how can you find a silver lining when something so heartbreaking happens? Needless to say, this stuck with me. I keep telling myself that with everything bad, there is always something good, and with every negative there is always a positive. I have learned that if I stay too focused on the door that is closing behind me I am missing the one that is opening in front of me. This my friends, is my silver linings playbook. The "playbook" of all things lined in silver - the good side to all the bad, the positives to all the negatives, the open doors from all the closed doors, the new opportunities from opportunities missed or not taken, and every happy moment to be cherished.

It may sound cliché but I truly believe everything happens for a reason. You are where you are because of some plan greater than you can imagine and at some point that plan will unfold and things will start to change. I know that I am writing this post because I love to write, blog, and create and it's something that I have missed in the past few weeks. I hope you'll join me on this journey - things are about to get real good. :)
