Get Your Lemons Ready….
Have you ever thought about the dreams and visions you had when you were just a kid? The innocence of thoughts and how FREE your imagination was. I have always been a “girlie girl.” I remember having the best tea parties with my mom, dad and of course teddy ruxpin! I would dress up in my ruffled dress, set the table and talk about whatever my little mind found imaginative. Hurt and disappointment were nonexistent. My world was filled with hope, beauty and innocence.
So what happened? Have you ever asked yourself that question too? Have you ever looked back on your life and thought, this is NOT how I imagined things to be? Do you feel like me at times because of hurt and disappointment that you have to keep your guard up, or constantly be on the defense? Do you feel like me sometimes that the only safe place is yourself because others can’t be trusted? Do you ever feel like your greatest desire is also your greatest fear?
What do you do when life gives you lemons? Yes, say it with me “make lemonade” But do we have to make lemonade? Can I be completely honest? Somethings I have been through, I don’t want to taste lemonade from it. Why can’t we just take those same lemons, and in time, throw them right back and use them as a “victory pitch?!?.” If you are looking for me to answer how to turn grief, brokenness, rape, divorce, abuse and even molestation into lemonade, I don’t have the answer. But what I will say for every lemon that has come your way, it is not the lemon itself that is bitter but the taste of it. You may have a handful, basket-full or boat-full of lemons! Its okay, just TAKE AIM and make sure you throw them back at life as hard as you can!
