We have all heard this phrase at one point or another in our lives… When life gives you lemons, make lemonade”. Over the last year, life has made sure to throw an entire fields-worth of fruit at me. Not only did life throw lemons - it also threw limes, bitter oranges and even a grapefruit or two. I went through difficult periods after committing to my art full-time post COVID. There were days where I felt like I had everything under control, and then more days where I struggled to realize my purpose and my worth as a person, an entrepreneur, a family member and even as a friend. I questioned all of my decisions and started to wake up thinking  “I wonder what’s gonna go wrong today”.
After a few mental breakdowns, I found myself finding peace in reading. During the last 6 months, I did a deep dive into all books that focused on changing your mindset, meditation, and understanding the Law of Attraction. Thanks to these books, I found myself looking at life’s “fruits” as growth opportunities instead of signs to quit. After all, chasing your dreams isn’t meant to be easy or else everyone would be doing it right? 

I share this piece with you as a reminder. No matter what your journey may be, remember that you are meant for the blessings that are waiting for you. So, when life gives you “fruit”, make a cocktail and keep it pushing.
