When Life Gives You Lemons

Make lemonade.

Or as someone once said…throw those lemons back at life and tell it to make its own. darn. lemonade.

Smile reader – sometimes life hands us things we don’t know how to handle. Sometimes we’ll cry, sometimes we’ll laugh, and if you’re anything like you me, you might even do both…at the same time.

Tomorrow is a new day and things will get better.

And in the meantime, there’ll be no judgement from me if you decide to dive into a pint of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream while watching your favorite romantic comedy. You might even find me doing the same. 😉

    My Mom always said that and I try to remember when times get tough. I’ve been going through a rough patch and it’s so difficult to pull through.

      You’re going to make it! In the thick of it, it can feel like you never will, but then comes the breakthrough. Don’t give up! ♡

    I like the throw it back and tell it to make its own darn lemonade part. It truly takes faith and hope to endure difficult situations. Lovely post.

    This is so true, sometimes life’s lemons need returning and replaced with my friend Ben and Jerry!

    This is just the reminder I need for today! It’s all about being positive despite everything that’s happening. I think we should all just learn how to make the best out of whatever life throws at us.

    Life is great about giving us things that seem too difficult to handle but there’s always light around the corner. Something new to renew our hope again.

    Yeah, life sometimes gave us lemons and we have two choices on what we do with them. I just love my life and thanks above for whatever lemon he will give to me.

    Looking on the more positive sides of things is always the best thing you can do for yourself, no matter what kind of lemons life hands you 🙂

    I loved this! Last week was definitely a binge watch TV and eat ice-cream kind of week. This week I’m seeing things in a new, more positive perspective.
