When life gives you lemons, it’s likely that you’re going to hear quite a few cliches. Don’t go changing, you’re fine the way you are. A watched pot doesn’t boil. Good things come to those who wait.
It goes without saying that it’s not always easy to hear the cliches, even if the people sharing the wisdom are well intentioned. I mean, hell, life just took a dump on your front porch. Why should you be all cheerful and ready to make the best of it?
Because even if you’re feeling like your life has gone off the rails, you still need to grab the bull by the horns and live your best life. So take a day, have a pity party, then invite a friend over and squeeze those damn lemons into your swankiest glasses, throw in some vodka, and have a party (not of the pity variety)!
Mark my words, you’ve got to make the best of it! So nip your sadness in the bud and leave no stone unturned. Realize that there’s no use crying over spilled milk. Keep your nose to the grindstone and recognize that life is not written in stone.
When life gives you lemons, get back on your horse and ride!
