Life More Beautiful

It’s been said that when “life gives you lemons, make lemonade”. I agree with the statement, but what happens when you have a lot of lemons, but seemingly no other “ingredients” to assist in the making of “lemonade”? Sometimes the bitter is so bitter, and the sweet so fleeting. So, instead of using that same phrase that I have heard so many times, I came up with my own: When life give you lemons, enjoy the bitter, but look forward to the sweet. Sometimes things come at you back to back, and it seems you are drowning in despair, but that is never the end of your story. There is always more to look forward to. I say that because for a time, it seemed that so much happened to me that was bad. I looked around, and though I was told that things would look up, all I saw was the negative. Curve ball after curve ball seemed to arrive, and I wanted to curl up and cry. What I did not realize, was that in everything, there was always something I could learn out of the experience. When I changed my perspective from lamenting at being thrown lemons, to acknowledging the bitter and reveling in the moment, my life began to change. Now, there are still things that happen which may hurt, but instead of drowning in it all, I took the bitter and looked forward to the sweet. Life happens, but when you shift your perspective, life becomes more beautiful. Make your life more beautiful. Change your perspective. Take your lemons, and while dealing with the bitter, know that things are bound to become sweet.
