#SixWordSaturday Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining #haiku


Chasing silver clouds,

Racing over clear blue skies.

Enjoy the challenge.


I was thinking about this well-known saying a few days ago as I was walking under a cloudy sky.

Cloudy skies not only bring silver linings, but they’re also more beautiful and inspiring than clear blue skies. In fact, a clear blue sky is enhanced by the presence of beautiful clouds, which are always unique.

Life is like that too. Living within our comfort zone is pleasant and safe, but it’s the moments we move out of this peaceful serenity that life moves on to a more challenging and exciting place where we feel energised.

It would be exhausting to live in a constant state of excitement, but the rush of the challenge undeniably leads to personal and professional growth. Striking the balance between comfort and challenge is the key.

How do you balance living within your comfort zone and challenging yourself?

    1. There’s a well know saying in Spanish when people retire and someone asks them ‘what are you going to do?’ The answer is, ‘I’m going to count the clouds!’ I suppose it means they’re not going to do anything;) it’s great fun chasing clouds! Enjoy your Saturday, too💖
