“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you” – Maya Angelou
All my life I’ve loved writing. It’s been an escape. A secret place that I share with only my pen and paper. But, when the hurdles of my life began to catch up with me I lost focus. I stopped writing as much and as a result I constantly found myself feeling as though a piece of me was missing. With this new blog, I plan on a fresh start; an opportunity for me to blog about the things that mean most to me.
I hope that who ever may come across this blog may find inspiration, a new perspective, or a personal connection in my own story. I am truly turning life’s bitter moments into the sweetest journey and I hope that you join me.
Lemons & Lemonade
We’ve all heard the phrase, “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade” at some point in our lifetime. But, what always baffles me is that there’s no recipe for this lemonade. I mean for most, lemonade is more than just water and sliced lemons. It also can consist of sugar (and sugar alternatives), simple syrups, and other sliced fruits. Yet, even once we’ve gotten the ingredients down, how do we know the right ratios. Too much sugar and it’s too sweet. Too little sugar and now you’re left with an unsatisfying, bitter drink. My point being, when life gives you lemons (obstacles), how are we supposed to know the recipe for the perfect lemonade (success). We’ve all had bad lemonade before right? So why would we want that wrong mix in our life.
