Silver Lining: Silver Lining

Silver Lining

I thought since this is my 100th post, it was a good time to put in action what I've been thinking about doing for months.

When I first made my blog, I was having a hard time. My mother just died, I was single, unemployed, not going to school, and struggling to make sense of my life. I needed this blog to write down my thoughts and work through my grief. I needed this blog to help me find the silver lining among all the clouds.

Now, I feel so different. I'm in a different phase of my life. I'm working, I'm in school, my home finally feels like a home again, and I have Sam, the biggest source of light in my life. Now, the silver lining is breaking through the sky, and I can barely see any clouds. I'm the happiest I've ever been.

I want my blog to reflect that, and I want my life to reflect that. It's not about the clouds. It's about the light.

So I chose a name that's more positive than Lining the Clouds with Silver, a name that doesn't mention the clouds at all - Silver Lining. I made the banner on my computer in about five minutes. Maybe I'll keep it for a year before I get sick of it. Maybe I'll change it three times this week. Who knows.

Welcome to Silver Lining. Feel free to look around and discover the sources of light in my life. What are the sources of light in your life?



  1. My money says that the banner will be different tomorrow.

  2. You continue to amaze me. I'm happy for you beyond belief.
