Look for the silver linings in life. Often something in life will happen which we interpret as being bad. When we look at it, however, it turns out to have some good aspects to it. Those are called silver linings. For example:
Your partner dumped you. The silver lining? There are so many different people out there that you can meet. Having the opportunity to get to know someone, to be let into their heart and soul, is a powerful thing.
You lost your job. Maybe you didn’t like your job all too much. The silver lining? You now have a chance to find a better, more meaningful, higher-paying position.
You failed at something when you thought you’d succeed. Life is funny that way, isn’t it? The silver lining? You learn just as much, if not more, from failing at something than you do from getting it right the first time.
Keep yourself busy. You know what they say about idle hands, right? Research has consistently found that people who stay busy are happier than people who stand idle. Not only is too much free time a little depressing, it can also be unproductive.
Think of all the things you could be doing, like joining clubs, visiting places, hearing lectures, and then think of how little time you are given in life to do just that.
