Squeeze the shit out of those things!!!
Seriously. Who can honestly say life hasn’t thrown them a curveball a time or two? Right. No one. So, what’s the antidote to all things shit? MAKE LEMONADE!
(think of the sensation that lemonade gives: sweet and sour, makes your mouth pucker up and leaves you feeling summer fresh!)
Let’s put this into perspective for a second. Say you’re at the entrance of a new year and you’ve set your sights on achieving all you could possibly dream of; that dream life, that new career, that dream vacation, to find the love of your life. Then COVID-19 hits and the world stops.
What do you do? Do you curl up into a ball of blankets, go back to bed and hope it’ll all be over when you wake? NO! You put on your big kid pants, get up, and keep going with a few adjustments.
Do you want to know why so many people are sinking instead of swimming during this time? They can’t get their mind right. When you look at the bigger picture, you have a few simple options. Live life or let it live you. Nobody wants the latter so find a way to make a new normal (even if temporarily) and push ahead!
I know you’re thinking this is all easier said than done, and for some maybe you’re right, but if you get your mind right, the rest tends to fall into place. Life was never meant to be so hard or difficult that you feel like you’re drowning. That’s perception. Learn how to handle your emotions and react accordingly (and when necessary). Not every situation deserves your attention!! Not every situation deserves your tears or breakdown. Not every situation deserves your sacrifice.
It’s what you allow to control your life.
Make some lemonade, sit back, do your part to keep society peaceful and bide your time. It will be okay!
