Blessings In Disguise

Lately, I feel as though I have been put in a lot of positions where I've had to make the best of some really awkward or hard situations and had to make a choice: wallowing versus seeing the silver lining. For instance, I nearly reached a new level of starvation when I was unable to cook for myself, but at the end of it my stomach shrank and I lost a good deal of weight, overall improving my health.

Lately there's been something in the water that has made people cranky, unfriendly, and malicious, and I've just been holed up in my apartment trying my best for self-preservation. Today, however, I realize that this is my golden (silver?) opportunity to move out of my comfort zone at my Saturday morning Korean class and make new friends. I'm more likely to meet people when it is driven out of necessity, so here goes.

And now, dear reader, a challenge: leave a comment and let me know your recent silver lining!

I recently discovered that I could make my own dinosaurs when the ones I bought turned out to be stolen :) I guess we need to be pushed sometimes, eh?

I've recently learned that God has a plan far superior and more prosperous than I could ever imagine. Just that it takes some short term pain to see that.
