Being healthy and living a life of impact is grounded first in basic self knowledge; in order for us to be the version of ourselves that the world needs us to be, we must first figure out what that version of our true self actually is.
We can never discover our authentic self without the lemons of life, so, in light of the famous adage, there is actually a lot more to lemons than just an opportunity to turn lemons into lemonade, or negatives into positives. The lemons that life throws at us give us an opportunity to become the people that we are meant to be, for it is through challenges that we become the most alive.
As for me, I have had plenty of opportunity to make my own lemonade, but you see, I’m not satisfied with lemonade. I believe that life is to be celebrated, so I will take my lemons and make them a gin and (diet) tonic — or at least I will put an umbrella in my lemonade glass. It is when we admit to the lemons of our live that we have the opportunity to grow and celebrate, so make your lemons into a drink of celebration, and have gratitude for every opportunity you get to raise your glass.
