Lemons = Lemonade

when life gives you lemons make lemonade

STOP - You can do so much more

When life gives you lemons….make lemonade, right?


You can do so much more with lemons. Use them for making savoury dishes, tasty desserts, things to go on toast, cleaning products, beauty products, cocktails. There are so many options….

Do you get my point? Not Yet?

Maybe it’s because we live in the hope that we have the answers for everything, or that we believe we now have the technology to deal with all problems.

The reality is that a lot of the time we put our hopes, beliefs, trust, and expectations in the hands of others. We rely on others for many things, which is not necessarily a bad thing, as long as it is in the right measure.

But we can do so much more on our own, we can prepare ourselves in many ways for the impact of eventualities that we may not necessarily expect…and this starts with us, with each and every person thinking for themselves rather than leaning or waiting for the approval of others…

Is tragic to hear and read so many stories of people losing their jobs and they are struggling, because they cannot keep paying the cost of the lifestyles they were used to.

The easy way. The simple way. The already-proven way.

Often these ways don’t really get us to where we want to be, to the places we really desired to be in. This can be true for anything in life.

There are no new ingredients, but changing the recipe involves mixing them up in ways that might just strike the jackpot with something sensational. If we never try a new way, we’ll never get anywhere new.

We will make mistakes and sometimes the mixes we try will turn out pretty badly, but there will also be greatness and success

For these things we need to be brave and adventurous. We have to talk to our inner selves, and tell our minds that new things can be great and amazing, that we are able and capable of achieving incredible things.

Every single one of us can move forward, and the only thing that can really stop us is the limitation of our own mindset.

So – if you want to keep making lemonade from lemons, that’s great. But if you suddenly realise that you’d actually like to have the whole range of lemon-based products then you will have to stand up, get creative and take action.

Your imagination is the limit.
