Why “Silver Threads”?
I can’t count how many times in my life I’ve been told, “Look for the silver lining!”
And in my work as a researcher and employee engagement consultant, I've found that many of YOU have heard these words during your most difficult days, too.
That isn’t always helpful when things seem (or are) really awful. During those times, I don’t want platitudes, I want HOPE.
Sometimes hope is simply a reminder that good things are out there. And sometimes those reminders, those small positive experiences or simple gratitudes, are just tiny, brief flashes, like a silver thread that you glimpse amidst the huge pile of challenges you’re dealing with at the moment.
Don’t ignore those flashes. Pluck them out, admire them for their beauty, no matter how brief, and tuck them in a safe place.
The more you look, the more you’ll find.
