When Life stops handing you Lemons 

I don’t know if finding happiness is actually a thing; but if so I think I might have found it. At least for now…

I used to be on an endless search for the key to happiness and the one who would make me happy. This lead to a few too many failures and resulted in me giving up. Several times. 

Unintentionally, I stopped focusing on finding that one thing that would make me happy and slowly realized that maybe I shouldn’t focus on being happy but rather focus on not being sad. 

Happiness is a state of mind. 

These past few weeks I’ve found that by thinking positive made my life positive. I woke up one morning and decided it was going to be a good day, and so it was. 

Being happy isn’t one thing, it’s everything. It’s not a car or a guy, it’s noticing the green leaves and tasting the butter on your bread. 

The happier you are the more good things will come your way. Stop looking for happiness, let it find you. 

I wish everyone could get rich and famous and have everything they’ve ever dreamed of so they could know that’s not the answer. 

-Jim Carry

So when life hands you lemons and tired becomes more than just a feeling, pause and examine those lemons, throw away the bad ones and focus on the good ones. 

That way more good ones will come your way.

  2. I loved it!

    I’m happy to find someone who shares this particular vision of life.

    A few years ago I was struggling with the feeling that I was a little more incomplete each year, like I was losing something on the way.

    I felt that the lights that were shining for me started to turn off. Then I realized that the better way to not be afraid of ending in the darkness was to start lighting my own lights. Since then, I like to think that each light that goes off makes me shine even brighter.

    Let’s shine and make some lemonade with those good lemons 😀
