When Life Gives You Lemons

Have you seen the new hit TV series called “This Is Us”? It’s about a cute little family, going through their lives–growing up, and growing apart. The daily struggles that we may all face, but still being able to see the bright side! (If you have not yet watched it, 10/10 would highly recommend!)

My point in bringing that up was because of a certain quote. A quote that really stood out to me. One that made me realize, no matter what, it will all be okay!!

“There’s no lemon so sour that you can’t make something resembling lemonade.”

You see, I’ve been going through a pretty rough time lately. I was feeling like I got shoved two steps back, for every step I took forward. Which let me tell you, is NOT a fun feeling! The hardest part is that I know good and well what I want. It’s just the act of GETTING it that is a challenge.

That, my friend, is life for you! One minute, everything is butterflies & rainbows…the next, is rain clouds and hurricanes. But it’s times like those that make us appreciate the small things.

I believe that we should focus more on learning to dance in the rain, instead of just waiting for the storm to pass. When you feel as though you’ve been dealt the worst hand, there is always a way to turn it around! You just have to be willing to look a little harder. Put on your poker face, and push through.

As I go forward in making some of my biggest dreams come true, I will constantly be reminded of how good this world can be–and regardless of your current state, everything will work out! Because in the end, nothing is too sour that can’t resemble something sweet…

What’s one struggle that YOU have learned to overcome, and what helped you get through it?

Some days, we all need a little extra sugar in our lemonade!
