When Life Hands You Lemons

Life has handed me a lot of lemons lately with very little sugar. If I were to try to make lemonade, let’s just say it would be very bitter.

If I back up and take deep breaths and get out of the moment – there have been plenty of good things that have happened to me recently. A lot of big steps, realizations, and falling back into place when I had felt disheveled. But that bad stuff really just feels like it’s piling up and burying anything good.

It’s at the point where life just feels like hit after hit after hit and nothing can go right. I love my new apartment, I love reconnecting with my friends, I love where I’m at with my job. But then my phone breaks, then I shell out thousands for my car over a three month time period, then I get sick and can’t enjoy the nice weather.

How do you really separate yourself from the bad when the feeling of all those things is so overwhelming? I think it takes a lot of support, a lot of positive vibes, a lot of things I just don’t have anymore or can’t appreciate anymore.

With the downs comes the ups – but how long do I have to hang out in the downs until I start climbing back up again?

  1. I LOVE the opening line! When I’m feeling a little blue I tend to lean into it rather than try and avoid it. I find that my mood is usually quite cyclical and every time I’m feel that low, eventually my I get back on that high (and the cycle continues) I hope you feel better soon and the taste of life is a little sweeter.

  2. I always joke that when life hands me lemons, I throw them. But seriously, I understand where you’re coming from. They say when it rains it pours, and that is certainly the way it seems to go. Stay positive, and picture yourself chucking those lemons, if it makes you feel better. It works for me. 😉

  3. Sounds like my life. Ugh. Especially the having to shell out thousands for my car. I’ve had 4 cars in a year and a half. It’s like if something good happens, life will throw something bad right after.
