Idiom: Every cloud has its silver lining

Desktop 08-08-2018 12-31-59-940

This idiom has always sounded a bit old-fashioned to me, but it’s the only one I know that can be related to what you feel when something bad happens  and you eventually see the good side of it. Not long ago, this  happened to me and  at first I felt really bad and depressed, but eventually it turned out well and today I feel that it was the push I needed to leave my ‘comfort zone’ and try other things in life.  As I always say , ‘A problem should always mean that a stronger and better version of ourselves will be the result‘.  After all, that’s what life is about, isn’t it?

Idiom (or saying): Birds of a feather flock together

In Spain we would say something like ‘Dios los crea y ellos se juntan’ for this saying or idiom, but in English, heavenly spirits have nothing to do with how humans interact with each other. Rather than this, typical behaviour is associated to animals (in this case to birds).
