When Life Throws You Lemons...

We have all know the clichés that relate to life’s challenges. We also know that when tough times arise, things often get worse before they get better. There’s an old song that says, “trouble won’t last always”.  No one has ever professed that trouble won’t ever come or that things will always be perfect, have they? You know why no one has ever professed those things? Because they aren’t true.  Challenges are a part of life and challenges are what make us both stronger and wiser.

Rough times will occur in life and there is no real way to prepare for them because we have no idea when it’s going to happen. What wecando is be positive and keep in mind that things will get better. There’s always resolution to a problem and often times when we face challenges it prepares us for something better. Funny how life works, isn’t it?

So, chin up and brace yourself and when life throws you lemons, make lemonade or lemon meringue pie or whatever lemony desert you choose. Most importantly, remember to count your blessings when the storm passes.
