Do you make lemonade? I often find myself loosing faith that when life serves you up a lemon, how are you suppose to turn it around and make lemonade? These sour events that occur during what we call life can knock us down, they can make you lower then you’ve ever been. They can make you loose faith, trust, and understandings with yourself & those surrounding you. It’s often hard to believe that everything is suppose to happen for a reason and I find myself trying so hard to rely on that little piece of information to help stay afloat. But what if you could change the outcome? Would you? Or would you accept the lemons you’ve been given and attempt to make something sweet… like lemonade? I can’t think of anything good coming out of some things that have occurred in my life. But I have to keep telling myself “everything happens for a reason” and one day we hopefully will find all the answers. I’d like to say I wish life was easy- no deaths, no sickness, no feelings getting hurt, but it wouldn’t be considered life without those influences. Everything we do sustain who we are as people. If you hold on to your bitter lemons you will never be able to move on to make sweet lemonade.. The negative things impact how you react, live & understand those around you.
Couple weeks ago the controversy of whether you see black & blue or gold & white popped up all over social media. I saw the image of the dress and I saw black & blue. My mom & husband saw gold & white. I saw online a theory that suggested if you saw black & blue that you were negative, that you had a negative impact recently on you and that was causing you to see these colors. I’ll be honest, my feelings were hurt. I’ve never considered myself negative. I’m not the half cup empty type of person … So I thought. But after reading this I became negative. Someone took control of how I felt by a simple theory. Why should I allow someone to believe that by seeing black & blue that I feel negative? I had recently had my baby boy & I found no sorts of negative impacts to be in my life. I had removed the negative people from my life, had a darling new baby boy, and felt pretty damn positive. But instantly after reading this, I kept pondering on what could be causing such an impact on me. Although to this day I still see blue & black, and I have no idea if that means negative events have happened but I decided that I wasn’t going to let a silly dress affect how I live. I’m going to keep smiling, being a good mother & wife, and enjoy all the positive things happening.
So all in all, if life gives you lemons, will you make lemonade? Or …
“If life gives you lemons, make orange juice and leave life wondering how you did it..”
From this day forward I am keeping my faith that behind every bad experience a positive experiences awaits. So keep in mind that next time life has thrown some major lemons your way, that the sweet lemonade will be showing up shortly.
And I can’t leave this blog
