Silver Lining!

I saw this beautiful sky and I had to take a photo… of course it didn’t come out fully the way I wanted but its still nice.

I am a silver lining person. I always look for the silver lining in everything. I don’t even mean to, it just comes out “…well it could….” or “…well at least….”

Even though it is pretty much automatic, I do think it is a positive trait! Although I recently noticed that when a friend was going through a rough patch, and definitely did not want the positive slant on the situation, I found myself deleting parts of messages, and stopping myself mid sentence! (Until she was ready 😉 )

I also have way of looking at things from all the different angles – which is great at times, but it means that I automatically play devils advocate, which can get me some strange looks when I’m with people who don’t know me well (and I’m defending something crazy haha!). Over the years friends would come to me and ask me to explain why a friend or boyfriend thinks or feels a certain way, and I’d give a list of possible reasons! (Of course I don’t necessarily think I’m always right, but I can come up with different options which let my friends look at things differently!)

What positive personality traits do you have that you like? (By the way I also have lists of negative traits too! For another day maybe!)
