When life gives you lemons, make lemon daiquiris!
The old saying, which you all know without the alcohol (haha) is simple but so very true. Life can throw so much sludge our way at times, that it’s easy to wonder how the heck we’re going to wash it all off. We get discouraged and sometimes throw up our hands, deciding we simply won’t deal with it anymore.
I’ve recently been going through a business-related situation, that has had one hiccup after another. I could have sat back and wondered – ‘seriously?’ every single time, instead of using each setback as a way forward. When one door shut, I went through an open window and though sometimes it was a tight squeeze, in the end things worked out.
In summary, we have to try not to take on the crap that can be thrown our way. I am well aware (very, well aware) that this is often easier said than done, still, it’s one of those things we have to try to stick to.
How we handle situations, determines future results. Pining over spilt milk won’t get us the true results we want, so when that happens, we have to mop it up and figure out another way to accomplish what we need to. So, who wants a lemon daiquiri ^_^?
