When Life Gives You Lemons

 

We have all heard the saying, "When Life Gives You Lemons make Lemonaid". It makes us stop and think doesn't it? What does it really mean? This phrase is used to encourage optimism and a positive can-do attitude in the face of adversity or misfortune. Lemons suggest sourness or difficulty in life; making lemonade is turning them into something positive or desirable.

For me it means, stop feeling sorry for yourself. You can do this, girl. Pick yourself up and move in a direction. This quote can be much easier said than done, however. Learn how to adopt a more optimistic attitude in the face of adversity.

I have been through so many downs, many times wanting to give up. Life can feel ?impossible sometimes. There’s never seems to be enough time to get all everything done done, lose your job, not enough to cover your bills, living paycheck to paycheck. Sometimes things can get so overwhelming that you might want to crawl into your bed and never leave the safety of your covers. 

No matter what you are going through, just know that you can get through this. 

Here are questions to ask yourself if you are feeling hopeless, helpless, or just down in the dumps.

1. Did you take a shower today?  If you have not bathed yourself in the past 24 hours, go do it right now.

2. Have you eaten anything healthy in the past few hours? No a Candy bars and soda doesn't cut it. Go eat something that can give your body healthy energy, like a banana, a handful of nuts, or a piece of cheese.

3. Did you get enough sleep last night? If not, take a nap. Go to bed an hour or two earlier tonight. Sleep is critically important for good mental health, so make sure you are getting enough on a daily basis.

4. Have you gone on a walk in the past 24 hours? Not just a walk to the bathroom or fridge, but a walk that lasts around 30 minutes. If going outside is not an option for you, walk around the mall or a large store.

5. Is it daytime, and are you dressed? Take off your pajamas and get cleaned up. Wear something that you really like, such as a dress, nice shirt, or your favorite pair of shoes. Put on make-up or Shave.

6. Have you hugged someone recently? If not, it’s time to go approach a friend, parent, sibling, or even your pet to get a hug. You may be surprise at how some basic physical contact can turn even the worst day around.Life gives you Lemons

I for one hae found myself doing the wrong things. Not getting dressed. I think who cares I am not leaving the house. Make-up same issue. What have you done to turn things into  something sweet?
