Even on the darkest nights, there is a light shining somewhere, you just have to look. I have started to make sure to always try & find some good in the situation, things do happen for a reason. Stop, take a breath & step back for a moment, sometimes just in that simple breath your mind can clear!

They say every black cloud has a silver lining. Find it. No matter how back you may feel, or how much you think you may be failing, think of the positives you have acheived so far. Moreover, even if you find the reason why you thing you've been failing (and, btw, no one fails until they've given
up completely), finding the reason alone - is a positive.
So keep looking for the silver lining - even in the darkest of clouds.
Look for the silver lining in every cloud or look on the bright side or with lemons, make lemonade or strive for: the glass is half full, instead of half empty or don't worry, be happy. I'm sure there's more sayings but basically we can choose to stay positive or not. 334
