Earlier this year, I laid out some goals for 2010 and as the year (which is more than half over already, WTF?!) has continued, I’ve added some other goals.
One of the bigger ones has been to find a “silver lining” in situations that might otherwise be, um, shitty.
For example, I’m currently in the midst of a big punch in the balls courtesy of writer’s block, but the silver lining is that I’ve gotten really, really, really, really good at searching YouTube for obscure movie clips and/or wrestling matches from the mid-to-late ‘90s…so that’s something.
Anyway, to further illustrate the importance of finding a “silver lining” in situations, here are a couple of examples of two situations made drastically less sucky thanks to a “silver lining.”
Example One: No Silver Lining
Example One: Silver Lining
Example Two: No Silver Lining
Example Two: Silver Lining
…see, everything is W-A-Y better with a silver lining.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to return to my regularly scheduled writer’s block and get back to YouTube.
So that’s something.
