Those silver linings

19. july 2012 at 12:51 | Thalia Contostavlos (TT) |  Archie´s Thoughts
……There are loads of thoughts running through my mind every day of my life. Most common of them being: "What the deuce am I doing here?" How did a poor boy from Ohio manage to get a job for one of the most famous private detectives in New York? How is it possible that he sleeps in expensive cotton sheets when all he had a few years ago was one shabby blanket? Is it even fair that instead of sandwiches from local diner, he eats exquisite dishes prepared by a topnotch chef almost every single day?
……My brain just keeps buzzing around with all those questions, trying to find a place where to land. And all I want to say is: "Shut up! Isn't there anything nice you have to say? I work hard, I've earned my place next to Wolfe. Not Saul, not Fred, not Orrie, but me! I deserve this." And that is when I look up at the clouds and see the silver linings around them. That is when the optimism in me awakens. I remember all those appreciative things that have been said about me. That I'm intelligent, educated, witty, responsible, hard-working, courageous, obedient, honest and that I can find my way out of every situation. That is when my brain settles with a simple answer: "We all are where we deserve to be."
……Of course, there's no need to say that I don't forget about the nasty things people say. I know some of them are true, but I wouldn't be who I am without those, either. So every time someone says I'm vain, obscene, negligent or that I simply talk too much, I just shrug my shoulders and try not to doubt myself. Because there's a whole art about being optimistic. You just have to keep believing in those silver linings around the clouds, even the darkest ones.

jako já s překládáním ani moc problém nemám, ale většinou anglické články už ani z principu nečtu :D

nojo, oni si totiž někteří založí blog (blog.CZ) a myslí si, že když budou kopčit anglické texty z wikipedie (teď nemyslím tebe), tak že budou mít děsnou návštěvnost z celého světa nebo co :D jako už jsem na pár takových narazila..
