When life gives you lemons…


The saying goes, when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. But what happens when you want a grasshopper or tequila sunrise instead? What happens when the thing that you have is not the thing that you really want? How do you convince yourself that lemonade is really a great drink, and why would you want anything else?

When you find yourself in a situation that you no longer want to be in we change it. We pick a new direction, develop a strategy, pray, seek answers, question everything, not say no, not say yes. And finally, we decide that lemonade was yesterday’s desire… today’s is fruit punch.

So then what, I ask, do you do, with all of your lemons?

  1. I think lemons just add colour and flavour to the world around them. Lemons are sunshine in a peel, I can’t think of anything brighter or more vibrant than a bowl of lemons.
