Has Life Given You a Basket of Lemons?
The old adage states "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." We've all had a bad day that has seemed to go on all week, and possibly even all month. Whether you're having problems at work, financial woes, family issues or emotional turmoil, all of these things can seem as sour as a fat lemon. You shouldn't let life keep you down. In fact you should take your misfortunes and make them into something sweet, or at least palatable.
If you need some help learning how to take bad luck and make it work for you, here's a few inspirations to help you keep your chin up during tough times.
Make a Difference
Nothing can help to put things into perspective more quickly than volunteering to work with those who are less fortunate than yourself. Whether you are passionate about helping the hungry, underprivileged children or homeless animals, one way to turn your frown upside down is to put a smile on the face of someone else.
Be an Individual
When the forces of life seem to be conspiring against you and make you feel as though you should step in line along with everyone else, don't! When you're out of harmony with your deepest self, life can seem sour and unfulfilling. Take the time to really connect with your innermost thoughts, emotions and goals, and in no time your attitude will be brighter and more optimistic.
Throw a Party
It may seem counter-intuitive to throw a celebratory bash when your luck has turned sour, but there's really no better way to stay in touch with your friends, network to discover a great new opportunity and just let loose. Gather your dearest friends and favorite acquaintances together to knock back a glass of bubblyAndre Champagne and eat some delicious foods while you readjust your attitude to change the course of your luck.
