Life always presents us with some obstacles. It’s just the nature of it. And it’s good. It keeps us on our toes and it keeps us growing. I’m enjoying a smooth ride at the moment which was long overdue. I know that eventually there will be some sort of challenges coming up and so I try to gain as much energy and knowledge to be able to ride them out as comfortably as possible. Today I’d like to share a Blast From The Past about obstacles with you. I hope your obstacles are the kind of challenges that are fun to overcome. Keep your eyes on the horizon and just keep swimming 😉
While baking I used quite a bit of lemons today and every time I grabbed one I couldn’t help thinking about the “if life hands you lemons…”. It’s one of those sayings that are actually spot on but also often so hard to live by. We all know how difficult it can be when you find yourself in a downward spiral. We know how much strength it takes to fight your way out of it. So the idea of making lemonade out of the lemons thrown at you appeals to me but I also know that it takes effort to make the lemonade. So while I’d like to share a post about it as a Blast From The Past, I would also like to share some other suggestions about how to handle a typical lemon situation.
I love the picture they chose to underline the statement. All those little obstacles, the incline in one way and the smooth, straight path on the other side. A crossroad and we have to make a decision which side to choose. We all know that this represents life. Everyone’s life.
See, I don’t believe that there are people out there who never encounter(ed) obstacles in their life. It’s just not happening. And yet with some it seems they had a smooth ride all along and will always just simply cruise along. But that’s only that one layer we see. We really have no idea of what lies underneath, where and when they faced their struggles.
