When Life Hands You Lemons; Move Past It

Life has a way of throwing lemons at you when you least expect it – and it never fails to seem like this only happens at the most inconvenient of times (and I say that with a sarcastic tone, because isn’t a terrible occurrence inconvenient at any time, really?). When life hands you lemons, you’re supposed to make lemonade, but it seems that’s much easier said than done. When things seem to be falling apart around you, you might need a little reminder of exactly how you can turn those lemons into something a little sweeter.

Find Support

No matter what unfortunate events happen in life, you always have a support group. Whether it’s your friends, your family or your coworkers, there’s someone in your life who is willing to support you when things get tough. Knowing you have someone on your side can help make life more bearable for you. It makes even the worst days seem just a little sweeter.


One of the best ways to turn your life lemons into lemonade is to focus on helping others. Maybe you have been given a difficult deal at the moment, but that doesn’t mean you cannot help others. In fact, making it a point to do for those less fortunate for you will make you feel a heck of a lot better about the things going on in your own life at the moment.

Search for Optimism

It’s not always easy to find the optimism in any given situation, but you can do it. When you find yourself looking at things in your life with disdain and upset, try to turn your train of thought completely around and start looking at things with optimism. This, I assure you, will take a great deal of practice and patience, but you can do it.
