So, it's Monday. Yay! The start of a new week and the opportunity to turn over a fresh leaf.
This week I've gone for an oldie but newie. An old saying that I typography'd myself-go me. Feel free to pin this onto your pinterest boards.
It's a simple fact that sometimes, life throws up problems and issues that can be hard to deal with. Perhaps you are going through some financial hardship or a breakup. Perhaps you just feel pretty low at the moment and don't know what to do. Perhaps you have a big decision to make and you're finding it difficult.
Whatever your 'lemon' is, you have to choose what to do with it. You can dwell on it and let it stew and get yourself in a dither and tizz, or you can think about what you could do to make the very best out of the situation, 'make lemonade'.
Hard up on money at the moment? Have a movie night with those DVD's that are gathering dust or use up those lingering bottles of bubble bath. Going through a breakup? Use this time to see more of your friends and family and people who make you laugh. A big decision? Research it and talk to people you know have your best interests at heart and enjoy the learning process.
Try, try, try to see the good in a situation. EG. "I have no money to go out" = "I can spend more time at home with Matt having cosy nights in". OR "I have a tough choice to make and I hate it" = "I know I'm going to make a decision that will better my life in the long run and this excites me".
I know it's twee and optimistic but I promise you, if you look for it, there is good in almost everything. I find that by focusing on that aspect, you feel a whole lot better about your life and the weights of the world feel a great deal lighter.
Why not try it for one week and see how you feel? Have you turned any lemons into lemonade recently? Tell me in the comments.
