Wake up and smell the lemons

lifegiveslemons_fullpic_artworkI like Disney movies. I do. They are sweet, funny, romantic, and have a very idealistic view of the world. Every one of them has a happy ending.

It’s like those fairy tales we read as children. They all end with the phrase “and they all lived happily ever after”.

But do they?

We never know. We don’t really know what happens afterwards (and the sequels never catch-on).

Nonetheless, it is still refreshing to experience the story of Jasmine and Aladdin, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Pinocchio, Robin Hood, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and so many others. They are all stories of something good happening out of unfortunate situations. It sort of revives in you a belief that no matter what everything will be ok.

But in the real world, these fairy tales would never exist. We all know that. Because we live in a world where if you lose your shoe, people will most probably look for the other half of the pair, not try to find the person whom it belongs to.

Life is not as bittersweet as fairy tales make it out to be. Sometimes it’s just sour. Like lemons.

Then all you have to do is take those lemons and make the best lemonade you can out of them!
