When life gives you lemons, make lemonade

This is a proverbial phrase used to encourage optimism and a positive can-do attitude in the face of adversity or misfortune. Lemons suggest sourness or difficulty in life; making lemonade is turning them into something positive or desirable. Tough situations have taught me a beautiful lesson of life that what you have is today. Life is unpredictable and full of uncertainty. We all are always worried about future. We work to make our future beautiful but never think of today. We think that if we work hard today, we can have a beautiful future. To make our future beautiful, we sacrifice many things like alone time, family, small moments of happiness and a lot more.

Whenever I was in trouble, I had the support of my families, their love and affection. I used the term families because one is my personal family and the other is my professional. Both my families motivate and strengthen me to face any situation positively. Difficulties have taught me that everything is worthless except your health and your family. To create special moments in life, we don’t require going out, it can be created anywhere, anytime, any day.

I experienced the joy of connecting with online classes. The smiles which I missed for a few days because of the lockdown, I got back during the online classes. We were scared but nature was healing, and we were able to admire its beauty.

I think what is important in life is to live today to the fullest and be yourself.
