“When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.”
We had some lemons delivered on the home front mid June, when my husband was unexpectedly hospitalised. Luckily he came back home after a few days and we are now re-calibrating our nerves, minds and souls, on our way back to a more regular life again.
I felt like a balloon that went empty, all of a sudden. Like very empty. But then there was this: The most wonderful colleagues who sent me a package of goodies.
I wasn’t ready yet to make lemonade, but you don’t have to ask me twice to grab the camera for a jewellery/metal shoot. I just wonder, how did they know this was exactly what I needed? Copper chocolate to bridge the first few weeks, and pearl chocolate to help me not going nuts.
This is my heartfelt thank you to you, my colleagues – know that I appreciate your sweet gesture very much!
We all get our rough times to go through, don’t we? Internet is full of suggestions of what else to do when you get lemons, like “When life gives you lemons, make orange juice and leave the world wondering how you did it”.
I fell for this one: “If life hands you lemons, throw them back and yell “I WANTED CHOCOLATE!”” (Unknown)
As you can see, it kind of works!
And you, what do you do when life gives you lemons? Is your camera involved? Chocolate? Perhaps you sit down to make some jewellery? Or do you happen to have the recipe of a real, nice lemonade, of whatever fruit?
