When Life Hands You Lemons

I’m sure many of us can attest that we’ve been pelted by lemons at some point in our lives. Thrown the proverbial curveball that changes everything, some people refer to it as life handing you lemons. As you know, the rest of that saying is:

When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.

Unknown

But what does that mean exactly? Make the best of your situation? Drink lemonade? Accept the disappointment, curveball, illness, and do something positive with it? Well, as someone who has made her share of lemonade, I’d like to change it up because I’m not really a fan of lemonade myself. Are you?

But I’m not sure how to do that. So I thought I’d check in with my sweet, longtime blogging friends and ask the question to you. I know many of your stories for having been reading your blogs for many years, I know none of us have escaped the lemons in life which have made us stronger. So how would you change up that quote?

When life hands you lemons…

Feel free to enjoy and share whatever comes to mind…I always enjoy a good laugh by the way!

Shine On!

  1. Pass them on? 😂 🤣 No, I would not do that. In fact, through my journey…everything, and I mean everything is teaching us, guiding us and giving us something very profound and beautiful. But first the lemons so that when we do find that beauty inside, those lemons will make that discovery so much more appreciated ‘because’ of those lemons. We will see that our very reaction to those lemons give us more hope, courage and especially empathy and compassion ‘because’ we have been through the lemons, building that love within. So, I’ll take some lemons please 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋
