When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.  How many times have you heard that in your life?

Does anyone ever know what the size of the lemons are?  Perhaps your problems don't equate to fricking fruit.  I know people who have serious issues.  Issues with health, children, cancer, and other "lemons" that you really don't know how to make juice with.  These people don't have a pitcher, blender, ice, sugar, or whatever to make that glass of lemonade with the sour fruits life have given them.

Yet, some of them stay positive.  Some try to live.  Some try to deal.

I believe the saying is wrong and generic.  I believe in order for one to live a greater life they must aspire to greater things.  I think people need to get off their ass.  When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade.  Shit, what if you don't even life lemonade?  What do you do with those lemons then?

The answer is quite simply, smile.

Everyday you are alive, you have a chance to attempt to make change.  Everyday God wakes you, you're given a second win.  A chance to do something great.  A chance to be awesome.

We all have ups and downs in life.  It's a roller coaster and if you don't like roller coasters, I am sorry to say this but you are screwed.  So what do you do, buckle up and prepare for the next hill, next drop, next loop, next corkscrew, next whatever, and hold on tight.  Hold your loved ones tight, hold your spirit tight.  Know that if you had such a shitty day one day, that the next is a chance to change your luck.

If people that I know that have terminal issues can find it in them to stay positive, then perhaps you can as well.  Just need to figure out what makes you happy and keep yourself grounded.

And try to enjoy a glass of lemonade when you do.

Your buddy,
