When life gives you lemons, make lemonade

You can spend your whole life building Something from nothing, One storm can come and blow it all away… Build it anyway

You can love someone with all your heart For all the right reasons And in a moment they can choose to walk away… Love them anyway

~Martina Mcbride, Dream it Anyway

Sometimes you do everything right, all the pieces are where they should be, but something happen and you don’t reach your destination… Something out of your reach, out of your control… and you get disappointed.

Sometimes the Whole Football team  plays exceptionally well, and everyone just played his role exactly as he should… But one of them Misses… and They Lose the game.

Life is full of these moments, just like there are moments of Joy and surprises, there are those moments of disappointment.

One of the first things I learned from living alone, was that problems won’t solve themselves when you shout and yell at them, and most importantly, there’s no one to hear you… So there’s no point in taking it negatively, you just accept the fact that something is wrong, and you will find a way to fix it.

In our tip for this week, we will look at embracing what is natural in life, and dealing with it the way we should:

  • Issues & problems will continue to happen: it’s a healthy indicator that everything is going normally… Look at it from this perspective, just like when a teacher keeps getting questions from his or her students saying that they didn’t understand the lesson… At least they are paying attention or let’s say they are Trying 🙂
  • The more you face Disappointments, the more you grow stronger: it’s a fact that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, and our tolerance to problems and stress grows more and more with every issue we OVERCOME.
  • Sometimes a Disappointment is an opportunity in disguise: so many found wealth and prosperity in times where the market was down or the hope was gone and everyone thought otherwise.

So no matter how many times you thought  you have “failed” or got “disappointed”, never Fail or Disappoint yourself and Keep Trying… Because the Sun will always Shine..

Have a great Week!

  1. I so agree with you! Great post! We cannot get discouraged and let the act of being discouraged ruin or stop our experiences…Life is meant to be lived. We were created to not only survive, but, really to thrive! Like you said..The sun will always shine! God bless! You have a great week as well, friend! 🙂
