”When life gives you lemons..

…. squeeze them in people’s eyes. “

That has to be the most vile ending of this quote I’ve ever seen. Squeeze lemon into somebody’s eyes?!? Not like I wouldn’t do it haha. The way it translates itself in my head is like, when things that are not so pleasant occur in your life, transfer aggression 😂😭. Don’t let anyone stress you. Phew .

The thing is, unconsciously, a lot of people do this, and it’s sad. There are better ways to deal with lemons . Other “when life gives you lemons..” are not even that bad. Let’s look at some

  • When life gives you lemons , make lemonade. Duh. Make the best out of whatever life dishes at you. See the positive side in the situation you’re in and create something beautiful.
  • When life gives you lemons , bake a cake, leave them mfs wondering how you did it. Now this one slaps. I guess this means, when you’re going through life issues, mafo. Make sure you overcome and shock everybody.
  • When life gives you lemons, make orange juice . This is just like the previous one. Do what you gotta do sis.

There are different ways to react when things go south in our lives . You can decide to make lemonade, orange juice, or better still, bake a cake. Stay positive! You’ll get out of it eventually. Life can switch up. I mean, if you’re making orange juice from lemons, that’s mad switch up. Do whatever you have to do.

When you feel like you’ve been served lemons, remember these quotes. I’ll be sticking with the baking a cake part, because why not!

Let me know in the comments other lemon quotes you’ve heard, and which ones you’ll be applying this week.

  1. Great read. On the subject of lemons, my take on this; When life gives you lemons, make whatever you want, become an alchemist. In contemporary society alchemy is a term used to describe the ability that people have to manifest personal change. Inner alchemy provides us the means to better understand ourselves, the Universe we live in and our purpose in life. I explore this subject in my latest blog article https://authorjoannereed.net/when-life-gives-you-lemon-makes-lemonade/. Feel free to check it out!
