What To Do With Life’s Lemons?

Life is what you make of it. And sometimes things don’t go as planned. So what should you do? Such events often leave you less confident about your future. Less motivated to take actions. It could be a career failure, bankruptcy, death of a loved one, and the list goes on… Based on personal experience, gratitude has allowed me to focus on what is working instead of what I don’t want. There are lessons to be learned, and an opportunity for growth.


Learn to step back to reflect on the situation. Give yourself permission to live through the pain. Grieve if you have to, pray, meditate, schedule therapy, call someone who you can talk to freely, spend time with you, but not to the point of isolation. Avoid masking pain, allow time to heal. Remember that this too shall pass and you will overcome.

In the process of healing, keep on moving. Refocus on your goals and work. Being part of the living means you are created to contribute, to add values to the lives of people. Surround yourself with greatness and be inspired to recreate yourself to be extraordinary.
