How do you go about it then? Firstly, you know that there is such a thing as lemonade. Then you need to know what else you need besides the lemons – sugar being the obvious one (or a sweetener of some sort). Of course, then you need to get the sugar/sweetening agent. So far, so good. But, what happens if you can’t get any sugar? What if you can only have salt? Oh well, preserved lemons then. Or maybe there are other things you’ve got that you can add to the lemons (Ive included links at the end of this post to give you some ideas).
What I am trying to point out is that there is more than one solution to your life problems and it may be that you can deal with it with what you already have. If you are not sure what to do and need help, ask someone, google it, get professional help. There are heaps of options. Some people only focus on the lemons in their lives and forget that they have sugar, salt, other fruit, etc. Maybe your neighbours want lemons and you can barter with them.
There are people who built their lives around their ‘lemons’. There are people who use their ‘lemon’ experience to make something better. Some people write books about the lemons in their lives, make careers out of it even. Some people use their lemons to become inspirational. Check out the link below and when you have read it, have another think about how sweet your life is right now.
I’d love to hear your (happy) thoughts on this one
