“If life hands you lemons, make lemonade.”

We’ve all heard this saying before and for some odd reason while I am attempting to patiently wait for my nailpolish to dry, I thought of this saying.  I guess it could be because of my new sense of acceptance (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, you can see my previous post).

When I think of this saying though, I think why lemons? Then, I think, why lemonade?

I guess, life is never sweet.  Instead it often leaves you with a sour taste in your mouth that makes you cringe. Lemonade isn’t very sweet either but most people add a bit of sugar to it.  I am not entirely sure what I am trying to say in this post and I’m pretty sure I just ruined my nailpolish…sigh.

Basically, I think what I am trying to say is that either there is more to the saying than meets the eye or maybe the reason it’s such a popular saying is because its lemons and people read into things more than they should.  Wow, I don’t think that made any sense and I REALLY don’t think I should publish this post.

Ok, let me try this again.  People say this saying when they want to tell you to make the most of what you’ve got.  What I’m trying to say is that in order to make the most out of a sour situation, you have to add your own sugar to it.

Does this post make any sense at all?  (this post may be gone by next week.)
