What are lemons? Lemons are the things that bring about anxiety, fear, and frustration in our lives. You should consider yourself lucky if you only get a few lemons a day. Unfortunately, many people carry around a sack of lemons that is clearly visible to everyone. Others hide a lot of lemons in the closet. You might not see them, but they will certainly fall out once they open the closet door. Even the so-called lucky people have their fair share of bitter experiences every now and then. Life tells us that we will have our own lemons to deal with on a daily basis.
The best way to deal with lemons is to make lemonade. What is lemonade? It is the end result of dealing with the things that lead to anxiety, fear, and frustration. Small challenges can quickly be overcome, so making lemonade out of them can be a quick and easy task. On the other hand, major challenges can make it difficult to find a place to store your lemons while you search for a pitcher large enough to make your lemonade. Simply put, big challenges request much more effort, but once they are overcome, you have more lemonade for yourself, and others!
When you make your lemonade, be sure to add a little sugar. What is sugar? Sugar is the attitude we possess when we make our lemonade. The best way to handle life’s problems is to have a positive attitude and mental outlook. Hopefully, you have the ability to find a positive outlook on your own. I believe we have all been given this ability from God. You have been given your own sugar! However, if it is difficult to find or add your sugar, look outside to people or other sources of inspiration to add a little flavor.
As a final thought, no matter how bitter your lemons may taste, someone else has lemons taste that taste just as bad, if not worse than yours. In other words, someone is always worse off than you are in your present situation! This is why it is very important to share your lemonade, and your ability to make it, with others. You never know when your story, or encouraging thoughts or deeds, will arrive just in the nick of time for someone who is saddled with a heavy burden. You might even inspire them to make lemonade out of their lemons and share it with other people too!
