A friend shared the “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade” quote in a recent conversation.
The quote does a great job speaking to the importance of reframing challenges.
What it doesn’t do, however, is set the right expectations.
Life doesn’t give us those proverbial lemons occasionally.
If we’re seeking to do something meaningful with our time, we’ll get them all the time. The presence of lemons from life is just a sign that we’re headed in the right direction.
The obstacle is the way.
