    This was so timely! Was turned down yesterday, the same day you posted this, at the final stages for a job I really really wanted. The recruiter invited me to interview with the parent company for two other similar positions, but I was focused completely on the rejection. A friend told me to recognize the silver lining. Seeing this post and remembering the good advice of my friends and feeling a bit brighter on this gloomy Saturday in Brooklyn!

    So true, perspective is everything – and we have control over a lot of it.

    This is really love. Mari’s illustrations are always so unique and insightful and thought-provoking.

    I’ve had to search the meaning of “silver lining”, now I get it. Lovely.

    I absolutely love this! So much truth… we too often forget that though we’re not in control of our circumstances, we’re in control of our outlook. Thank you for today’s feature:)

  10. Love.

  11. I love this. Resilience in a silver marker.

    Yes! I got some not thrilling news this morning and will be making a lot of my own silver linings for the next few years.
