"When Life Hand You Lemons, Make Lemonade"

We should never let a bad day be enough to discourage us, to convince us to give up, withdraw or back down. We all wish every day would be a good day, but the reality is that most days we will experience some sort of “bad”, but we should remember that there are a few someone’s out there who feel just like we do. There is no living person on earth who can say that every day has been a good day for them…not in the natural sense of the word. During our lifetime we all face a whole string of bad things happening to us which turn a good day into a bad day.

Bad things are part of our daily lives, part of who we are and what happens to us. Instead of letting it get us down, instead of giving up or throwing in the towel, we should try and find the positive in everything, concentrate on what can be learnt from that experience, how can we turn it into something good, something that will benefit our lives and the lives of those it affects.

We all have our own histories filled with things we regret, words we wish we had never said or could take back. There are those of us who have things we wish we could undo, and things we wish we could redo. But in the end we should realize that they are all lessons we have to learn to get ahead in life and grow who we are.

So take the lemons life has dealt you and decide whether it will end up on the compos heap rotting or if you will enjoy a tall glass of cool lemonade.
