When in your life have you been handed a bunch of lemons, yet managed to make lemonade?
I had a professor once who used this expression in a class and explained what it meant. In your lives, he said, at least once or maybe more than once, you will be handed a bunch of lemons. Some event will happen, not your fault, but you will have to deal with it. Maybe illness, divorce, getting fired, or some other sad unexpected event. When that happens, he said, the best thing you can do is just make lemonade. I have often thought back on his words in my life, as I tried to make lemonade. I believe it is inspiring to consider approaching such events, as serious as they may be, as puzzles to solve, rather than life crushing happenings.
