Silver linings and golden opportunities are starting to appear as we weather this storm, however I have to pause to acknowledge that I speak from a place of privilege where my income is, so far, not threatened. There are many for whom a silver lining is a luxury they can’t afford. At the bottom of this post, please leave a comment and let me know:
Is there any silver lining for you?
Here are some I have seen:
This is a golden opportunity to discover nature on a more personal level
Find things that were lost
Spend less money
A silver lining to driving less is saving time, money and stress
Fewer flights saves fuel and reduces pollution
Working at home enables fathers and mothers to get to know their children
And a whole generation of children will have the experience of being seen, being known better, by their parents.
This is a golden opportunity to show more kindness, as we acknowledge healthcare workers and those providing essential services so we can survive in isolation
My Safe String acknowledges these golden opportunities with a wooden bead I’ve painted in pink and gold, and silver linings I see, and have yet to see, with a precious flower bead in sterling silver.
