When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade
I hope all is well with you. I’ve come to give a bit of an apology. I’ve been on holiday for the past week and yet I have posted nothing… simply because I just haven’t felt in the mood to blog. Or read. I have review copies that I should have read and written reviews of by now, but my biggest issue is that I just have 0 motivation.
So instead of heaping another review onto the blog, I’ve decided to get off of my lazy demotivated bum and actually post something. And it’s something that has been dwelling on my mind a little with the release of Beyonce’s surprise album called Lemonade.
You’re gonna need a little background information before I can get to the point. I promise I won’t go off on a fangirling tangent though! If you know me, you’ll know I am crazy about Beyonce. Well, recently she was cheated on by her husband, Jay-Z, and this visual album is all about the thoughts and feelings that come with that. She discusses loving him, hating him and all the emotions that come between as well. Another theme that runs through the album is the race issue which involves modern day discrimination as well.
Why this brought about this blog post was because I was thinking about the things life gives us, and I came to the conclusion that life gives you one thing, and one thing alone and you get to choose what you end up doing with it.
When we are born, we are always born into a family. We have a mother (everyone does!) and that mother will either raise you and love you, or she will give you away. And no matter where you go and how many horrible people you encounter in your life, I strongly believe that you will always run into at least one person somewhere in your childhood who will love you for you. Maybe you’ll be lucky and run into multiple people, or maybe you’ll just have the one person. It could be a teacher, a best friend, a family member… anyone.
Because if life gives you something, it gives you love.
Some people take this love and turn it into black hate.
Some people take this love and let it blossom and share it with others.
Some people are at loss as to what they need to do with it.
There are so many things going on in the world today, that can make you angry, that can make you bone-weary tired and fed up. But in whatever you do, and to whoever it involves, always remember that from all the emotions, love is the strongest.
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Choose love ^.^
(I’m going to be blogging a whole lot more next week. Just you wait and see ^.^)
