What do you do when life gives you lemons and then, keeps on giving them? Okay, we all know the cliché; we’re supposed to make lemonade. That’s a sweet thought, isn’t it:~)
But what happens if you get stuck and the lemons keep coming faster and faster. You can’t make the lemonade quick enough and the lemons keep piling up!
I’ll be honest. I’ve been experiencing my share of lemons lately and they aren’t coming gently down the conveyor belt. No, these are pounding into me and they hurt. I can’t catch up with them to even attempt making them into lemonade.
So, what do I do? Well, you know me. I write about it. I also find a way to laugh about it.
For me, laughter is a magic laser that slices through the lemon-days in my life. When I’m laughing, I can’t stay angry or even upset. Laughter is therapy for me; it makes me see things with a different, more healthy, perspective.
As I thought of my current situation, I remembered the “I love Lucy Show” and this particular clip from it. I found it on YouTube.
Did you laugh? I did! I laugh every time I watch it. I don’t just chuckle politely; this one makes me belly laugh until tears come to my eyes.
And I feel better because of it. My world, which was tilting by the weight of lemons, has shifted back up. All it took was the balance of laughter.
So, if like me, you’re feeling pummeled by lemons, find a way to make yourself laugh. The lemons will not disappear, but I guarantee, you won’t mind them nearly as much:~)
