When Life Hands you Lemons (#Write31Days)

This is Day 1 of my #Write31Days Series for October 2015. I hope you’ll be encouraged as you read.

The longer I live, the more I’ve come to realize we only have these right-now moments. We only have now, and so often I have missed living fully in the moment, that I’ve missed the beauty even in the pain or the forgiving ease of laughter. I’ve noticed recently how many of my thoughts begin with “when” moments. They are those moments I’ve had upon walking through the yuck and hard stuff, like when you think you can’t, you can. When life hands you lemons, make lemonade. When, when, when. So that’s how many of these stories will begin. Maybe you’ve had those moments too. You’re not alone. We’re in this together.

Here’s to taking the sour things of life and reframing them to find the sweetness of faith, hope, and resilience. I hope you’ll join me on this month long journey.  You’ll also find me sharing bits and pieces on my Twitter and IG accounts. I’d love to see you here as the series kicks off, October 1st.  Scroll down to follow along with each day’s post. You can also subscribe to my blog here.

In the mean time, tell me, how you make life’s lemons into beauty and triumph.  Let’s make life sweeter!
