The concept of "The Silver Lining" refers to the idea that "every cloud has a silver lining." What this means is that even when things are bad, one can find some good to either come out of it or the existence of something good within "the cloud."
That being said, writing a narrative about silver linings would attest to a time in one's life where it seemed like everything was going wrong. Eventually, the person learned something from the trial they faced or something good actually came out of the trial.
Therefore, in order to write a narrative (a chronological telling of events in one's life), one needs to reflect upon their lives and times where they faced challenges. The following suggest possible ideas for writing a narrative on the topic of "The Silver Lining."
1. Parents divorcing: It may seem like a bad thing, but life after the divorce allowed both parents to be happier.
2. Failing at something: When one fails, they learn. This failure shows the "challenger" how not to fail again.
3. Wrong place, wrong time: Sometimes people find themselves in the middle of something they had no intent on being in the middle of. This allows the person to reflect upon the choices that led them to be where they were, and it allows them to change those behaviors in the future.
4. Fights with friends: Perhaps one time a fight broke out between friends. Reflecting back on the fight, one can determine if the friendship was real or not.
Essentially, one needs to examine a time in their life where they faced "dark times." Next, what came from this dark time needs to be examined. What was learned? Did the person become stronger? What could be looked at as positive? (The answers to these questions will provide the "silver lining."
