Life is hard. There is no way around that fact. It does not matter if you are rich or poor, trouble will still come your way. But for many of us, instead of going out and solving the problem, we choose to whine and complain. Well, it’s about time you got rid of that attitude and start doing something to change your life.
All of us have probably heard of the expression, “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” But have you ever wondered why life keeps giving you lemons in the first place? Other people get grapes, apples, bananas, even coconuts – but not you. You’re just a regular lemon magnet.
Here’s a thought, maybe the reason why you have that vat of lemonade in your kitchen is because you planted and orchard-full of lemon trees in your backyard in the first place. Which leads us to that other interesting adage about fate, and how it can come back to bite you in the ass, “you reap what you sow.”
We live the life that we make for ourselves. If we are not satisfied, then it is time to stop making do with what we get and start over. Cut down those lemon trees. Cut them down today. Replant your orchard with the fruits that you want to have in your life. Or flowers, if that’s what suits you. Whatever it is, that’s what you should be doing. You owe it to yourself to be happy, now, today, this very minute.
Find your star. Your guidepost. But don’t look to the skies. Look inside you. Deep inside. Into your heart. That’s where you will find it. Hopefully you haven’t buried it too deep, under layers of doubt, regret, and insecurity. If you can find that spark, if you can dig it out, then let it shine. And the glow it gives will light your path, as well as for the others who have also lost their way.
So go for it. You are never more powerful than when you are doing what you are meant to do. The trick is to find it and get to it before time runs out. Many people search all their lives and never do settle on what lights them up, but that’s ok. Because the search os part of the fun. The never settling is what’s important. The struggles of a lifetime of wandering from peak to peak is better than the comforts of a home in the valley.
