When life throws you a lemon…


 When life throws you a lemon and you want to wring it out, stomp on it, and throw it at the first rabid dog that appears in front of you (not that you hang out near rabid dogs or anything). Lemonade what? Yeah yesterday was one of those days. It can’t all be sunshine and rainbows but at least I get to escape for just a few minutes and write. Sometimes life throws you a lemon and you really just do not want to make lemonade you want to wallow in the sourness that was your day; but really what is that doing for you and everyone else around you. It’s making you more miserable and everyone around you is likely miserable. Angry, hurt people project anger and hurt onto others. Happy, blessed people project happiness and bless others. So even if it’s a bad day try to encourage at least one person. Just think if everyone had that mentality you would find yourself encouraged by someone following that same advice. So I had a crap day (as you can clearly guess) but I have hopefully encouraged or at least made one person smile today.

Today is a new day; a better day to look towards. How was your day? What one thing happened yesterday that wasn’t a complete fail or disaster? Me, well I was able to get my 9 month old’s fever down to normal temperature and the biggest hug from my 2 year old with an I love you. I got to have a princess coloring marathon complete with a sticker makeover with my 2 year old as well. Now that I am thinking back I am realizing I had a lot of awesome moments; not just tear jerking pull my hair out moments.. How can I continue to be down and out after that right? 🙂
