Taking the bitter and making it sweet. Life is unpredictable and that is what makes it fun, exciting, grueling and very rewarding.
When my life handed me a lemon in the form of a life treating disease of stage 4 lung cancer as a non-smoker. I didn’t know exactly how I was going to make lemonade out of this situation.
What I did know was that I was going to be in for the fight of my life going forward. Once I came to grips with my lemon aka my cancer things began to morph.
In the beginning stages of my journey, my lemon was a beast, unfamiliar, hard to handle and wrap my head around. Once I started to embrace my lemon, look at all the edges and feel it out. I started to see my lemon in a different way.
My lemon had become a force in my life that I had to learn how to overcome and ultimately conquer. I had to take my lemon and make it my own. What does this even mean? Well for me I started to treat my lemon like it wasn’t sour. Yes, my lemon caused me physical pain but mentally I was stronger than the physical pain I was enduring.
I worked against my lemon through positivity. It was through my positive outlook and attitude that I slowly turned my lemon into sweet lemonade.
I shared my lemon with others on social media so they to could have an understanding of what my lemon was putting me through. My videos, pictures and comment post that I shared on social media slowly softened my lemon and made me a strong force.
Over time my lemon started to shrink. The sour of my lemon is still there but I have been able to make several batches of sweet, refreshing, thirst-quenching pitchers of lemonade. Which I have shared with others and it has helped me turn a sour life challenging situation into an inspiring, motivational, uplifting abundance of sweet lemonade.
