The famous proverb –When life gives you lemons, make lemonade inspires us to have a positive outlook in life when we face difficulties and misfortunes.

When life shoots you with hardships and problems, you can always turn it around. Here is a magic recipe to turn the sourness of the lemons into a refreshing lemonade. Just three easy steps:

1.Make lemon juice-

Just like you have to cut and squeeze the lemons to make lemon juice, you will have to accept your problem and share it with someone you trust. Bottling up your emotions creates more negativity, so always share your problem with a family member, friend or confidant.

Isn’t it nice to have someone by your side during tough times? And who knows maybe you will find a better solution when you begin sharing your burdens.

Never shy away from asking for help. Sometimes the only thing you need is a listening ear and a warm hug.

2.Add sugar-

Sugar is added to the lemon juice to make it sweet. The natural sweeteners in your life are love, friendship, purpose, creativity, laughter and spirituality.

The beauty of life is that we don’t need to buy these sweeteners; they are present all around us at every time. To enjoy these sweeteners we need to live in the present. Not spending too much time dwelling in the past or being anxious about the future, but by living each moment as it unfolds. Add more little moments into your life that bring you happiness.

3.Add water-

Water is added to dilute the mix. How do you dilute your problems? You add tons of positivity. Being positive is a state of mind; you train your mind to look at the bright side of life irrespective of what is happening around.

Changing your thoughts can change your reality. You can use positive affirmations to rewire your brain to think positively. Positive affirmations are simple messages which when repeated over and over, can slowly change your thinking and reality.

Start a gratitude journal to remind yourself of all the good and positive things already present in your life.

There is no harm in being positive? So do what you have to, to be optimistic in life.

The amazing thing about lemonade is that you can customize it to your liking. You can adjust the quantities of sugar and water to get the right taste.  

When life gives you lemons all you need is the right mix of sweeteners and positivity to bring balance into your life. Make some lemonade and share this recipe 🙂
