When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. That was this weeks challenge.Â How’s it been going good. I take public transportation and often times we get packed in there like sardines. I carry a rather large gym bag and get looks for it. I usually roll my eyes when someone give me a look when they get hit with my bag, but instead I just smiled and said excuse me. Did that kill me no, did combust on the spot no. My takeaway — if you want to be a miserable shrew that your prerogative, I am not going to sink to your level. I will just kill you with kindness. As my husband always says you’ll catch my flies with honey than with vinegar.
I also found myself smiling to random people as I walked this week and in Boston, people are not use to that so I was surprised by the reactions I received.Â Some people smiled back and others looked at me as if I were trying to steal their first born. Again, I made lemonade.
If you put your mind to it you can really make most situations better and truly be happy.Â Talk to me let me know how do you make lemonade out of lemons.
