When Life Hands You Lemons, Keep Calm And Do These 4 Things

Me at 18: By 28, I should be done with my master’s degree,working a 7-figure job, finishing my 2nd album, driving my dream car (BMW X6 dear Lord) married to the love of my life and pregnant with my first child.


Well guess what? Life’s a lemon handing b!tch but you’ve got to stay afloat and turn all that acid around for your good. So,when next you’re in one of life’s many situations, flip the damn script and turn it into a lituation with these 4 tips.

When life hands you lemons, make lemonade or make a Lemonade Album.

Squeeze the juice out of the lemon and sugar it the fack up. Find that one little speck of positivity in all the negativity and focus on it. See how Bey turned her family problems into a moneymaker? If you cannot do away with the negative energy that life brings, you have the right to get creative with it.

When Life hands you lemons, shove the lemon up life’s as$ and go grocery shopping yourself.

You might be tempted to ask why some people have things on a platter of gold and the story is different for you. Well I’m sorry to burst thy bubble. Life’s not fair and there’s nothing we can do about it. Or wait, there is. Order for some Bobrisky Lotion or Dencia’s Whitenicious and light up your facking life yourself. By that I mean go ahead and do that which will truly make you happy.

When life hands you lemons, it’s time for detox.

Say “thank you life for these lovely lemons.” Squeeze them into a cup and purge yourself of all the bitterness, pain, hate, fear, friends, bad relationships, or whatever else is weighing you down or getting in the way. Once there’s a calm in your mind and heart, the vision to change your narrative becomes clearer.

When life hands you lemons, correct the typo.

At some point, you may have aided life’s gift of lemons with wrong choices, bad decisions and indiscipline. Welcome to the club and it’s nice to meet you too. Mistakes are only a part of the journey. Realizing where you have goofed is the first best step. Committing yourself to doing things differently is the next. That, my friend, is how to correct this kind of typo.
