Oh! These lemons…

A statement more known to all of us would be, “When life throws lemons at you, make lemonade.” Yes… turn every sour phase of your life into a sweet one; turn what is in your way to what guides your way. It is quite inspiring. But life is not that easy to make lemonade with, is it? It couldn’t have been.

There are lemons, but oh so many lemons. If I had in me, the will to catch every sour lemon thrown at me, then I would’ve done it. Unfortunately, when they are thrown at me, they’re thrown while am on the move; they’re thrown from every direction and at different pace. I cannot evade them all, and not every one of them is right.

Sometimes, I can make lemonade. At other times, I’ve to just ignore that there was on thrown at me, or forget that one lemon that missed me. If I stop to catch the lemons, and wait to make sweet lemonade with it, then I’ll be buried in the avalanche of lemons that’ll hit me. It shouldn’t stop me from moving in the journey of life, toward wherever my destiny lies. For I know it doesn’t lie under a pile of bright yellow lemons!

When life throws lemons at me, I duck some of them and then never give a damn about the ones that hit me. A few hits might slow me down, but stopping to make lemonade might just kill me…

“When life throws lemons at me, I ______ them and then never give a damn.”
Janhvi put this line into my Inspire My Art page, and asked me to complete it by filling the blank space, tell why I did so.

so glad to say, “Art – Inspired and Painted!”

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
