Lime to Lemonade

lime to lemonade

A popular saying – when life gives you limes, you make lemonade.

This has been the case for the past 3months. You realize that whether you are hungry or full, the sun still shines and the rains still fall.

When you think that you are strong, Life throws you a curve. And you either halt or take a turn or retrogress.

What did I do? I removed my 6-inch heels and put on my flat shoes. And walked the talk. I am not there yet, but I am still moving. A quarter of 2017 is rolling away, and never to come back, I just look at myself in the mirror and say, It ain’t over yet. I still have 3 more quarters to go. My colleagues moan how broke and tired they are. I smile and tell them, at least you are alive to moan. Me, I just carry this smile that doesn’t reach my eyes and move on with life.

In this first quarter, I learned how to prioritize. Compromise took a new level. Yeah, nobody said Life is Fair. And I am a wiser person.

Dear patient readers, what has the first quarter of 2017 taught you? Did you, like me learn to talk less and think outside the box? Did you feel like you running in a maze with no end? and Did you feel like a zombie, wake up by 4am, catch a ride to work by 5am, work like a drone bee till 5 or even 7pm, get stuck in traffic for another 2- 3 hours depending on where you call home, get home late and conk out! sleep or laze through the weekend?

Congratulations! you survived! Now, go kick some ass in April!

One thought on “Lime to Lemonade

    This is the last quarter of 2017. At first it felt I started too late and midway, it felt I wouldn’t get anywhere or achieve anything this year.
    But somehow I learnt to appreciate beautiful friendships and let go of toxic friendships.
    And as you said, “When you think you’re strong, Life throws you a curve”, I learnt to expect this curves and accept them as Okay. I learnt to take it all a day at a time, accept the good and bad, accept that I might not be totally healthy, but everything’s okay all the same
