Currently, life is crazy. I’m not sure we’ve really adjusted to the new school year. Maybe it was too much beach time this summer or the kids not wanting to wear uniforms or the longer school day. Who knows. What I do know…life is crazy.
And it seems that when life is crazy, life also likes to give lemons…just for fun…just to sit back and see how you’re gonna handle all those lemons. Like when you have to be somewhere in 3o minutes and you’re rushing out the door only to find that your car won’t start annnnd you have no other car to jump it annnd no battery charger to help out either. Cue freak out. But the thing is when life gives lemons, you have a choice. Either let life give you those lemons and watch you freak out or let life give you those lemons and watch you handle it.
As the famous Jake Owen says:
I literally laughed out loud, sat there for a minute until I was like…huh. Yeah. Because when life throws lemons at us, we can totally get mad and wonder why everyone else in our life seems to have it easy. Why we’re the ONLY ones in the world that seem to have bad luck. Plus it’s really easy to give excuses on why we had to give up on those life goals when everything in life seems to be going wrong. OR…and hear me out…you can look life in the face, smile, and get it done. I’m not saying it’ll be easy but there are always going to be obstacles in life. Always reasons to quit.
Life isn’t easy. If dreams were easy to achieve, they wouldn’t mean as much when we succeed at them. When you conquer your goals, there would be no satisfaction if they were easy. Follow your dreams, achieve your goals, and when life gives lemons…squeeze the shit out of them, make that lemonade, and spike that lemonade with some vodka.
