Every Cloud has a Silver Lining

Every Cloud has a Silver Lining

You must have seen when dark clouds cover the sky for a moment the sun is not visible and the area darkens. But it is only temporary, and eventually, the clouds move away or disappear, allowing sunlight to brighten your view. If we look closely at a dark cloud, we can see the sunrays brightening up its edges like shining silver. Something very similar happens in our life as well.

In the proverb ‘Every dark cloud has a silver lining’, the clouds are being compared to troubles, misery, tragedy, and all the bad times of an individual’s life. And the ‘silver lining’ in the proverb all in all refers to good times, happy moments or solution of a problem.

The entire proverb is based on ‘hope’. If people have hope on things will eventually get better and keep working towards their goal, then things will indeed turn in their favour. People can either choose to live life in misery and hopelessness, while all along whining about their conditions or they can choose to be optimistic and lead a fruitful life.

The ones who expect to make the best out of their life know how to widen their horizons. And these are the same ones who look beyond those momentary troubles that cloud their skies at that instant. The desire of moving forward in life, growth, and the shine of personality is represented through the phrase ‘silver lining’.

It is a common habit in humans to compare them with others and become demoralized. A teacher told us to think for a moment about an embarrassing memory of any person. Then our teacher asked who the person we thought about it, and it turned out everyone remembered a memory of their embarrassment. Our teacher explained that we barely get time to think about others and that too unwell thoughts and therefore the same occurs with them. With this exercise, he proved his point on why everyone should stop stressing on past incidents and focus on moving forward in life.

The ones who have mastered the art of boldly facing their misfortune and through determination reach time golden time that lies behind those dark hovering clouds are bound to be an inspiration. Many poets have addressed to the same idea that the proverb conveys which is if time is anyone life comes full of misery and misfortune then good times are not that far to arrive either.

The wheel of luck always turns, and the cycle of life is ever-changing irrespective of one’s social status, political beliefs or economical conditions. We might find ourselves in a phase of life when every door seems locked, or we feel doomed, but we must remember to keep working and keep moving forward to overcome those struggles. Only when we search well and have hope, we will be able to see that ‘silver lining’ in our life as well.
