    Nice post! We should be really thankful for what we have in this difficult time. People are going through so many problems; all I want in this weird time is just to see the normal world back.

    Lovely post Shelly. 🙂
    I’ve been through a really rough patch these past few weeks and the only thing that has kept me going is gratitude for the good things I still have going on. Better days are yet to come.

    Beautiful post. ❤️ I’m also feeling for people who lost their jobs, their loved ones, got infected or affected by COVID-19 in any other way.
    I’m feeling grateful that the pandemic haven’t affected my life negatively (trying not to jinx it here) apart from rather minor challenges.

    What a positive post. I needed to read that before work this morning because yesterday was the WORST day I have had at work in years. I should print this and put it on my desk!

    Thank you for these positive toughts. I have come to realize that choosing to focus on our positives does not belittle the suffering others experience. The world is on fire but we can still find good things that will help is carry on. Lovely post.

      Thanks for the positive feedback Micah 💖 you’re absolutely right, looking at the positive does not belittle feelings. I find that it actually empowers!

    Yes!!! Love everything about this post! 🤗👏❤ (Except I don’t actually like the taste of lemonade; so I will make iced tea instead 😉 Just a little nugget of info about me 😁)

    This was much needed, Thank you and being optimistic goes a long way❤️ Make lemonade when life throws lemons at you 😩 cause 2020 isn’t giving the lemons but throwing ‘em.

    I love your lemony take on life! And agree with you wholeheartedly. 2020 has been a challenge like never before – for all of us, but some more than others. But if we take a step back, there’s still things to be thankful for. Thanks for the positive vibes!

    Great read. I have a similar 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!
