When life throws you lemons

When life throws you lemons, what do you do? Make lemonade.  Some times things don’t go as expected. That brings about a lot of inconvenience and re-scheduling, not to mention the frustration. Has that happened to you?

It did recently to me. What was at first a beautiful plan became a frightful dream.  Disappointment quickly set in. It should not have happened. Was it poor planning, a lack of proper organization? It was beyond my control. What ever it was, it happened. Now to pick up the pieces and think of Plan B.

I stepped out of my comfort zone. Ventured out. Did new things. Seeked new experiences. Met new people. At the end of it, there was more non-monetary gain than I expected. There are spin-offs, too. I am now pleased with Plan B which would otherwise not take place if I had been previous engaged in the earlier activities.

It helps to move on and make the best of the situation, channeling all energy to positive causes instead of whining at the situation. So it does look like when life hands us lemons, we can make lemonade. Cheers to that.
