We've all heard the adage "when life hands you a lemon, make lemonade". Well sometimes you get a bumper crop of lemons and life just plain sucks for awhile.
The secret sauce of success is to love the lemons life hands you. Easier said than done, you say? I say easier done than living with bitterness and waiting for it to pass.
One theme that I see over and over in these daily Q&A's is that you wouldn't change one thing - even your most painful memories - because you truly have fallen in love with the woman you have become.
We have developed what some call Negative Capability.
That is the ability to sit with uncertainties, mysteries and doubts without chasing after facts and reason.
Sometimes, life just is. And it is perfect in the moment.
What have you learned along the way?
And if it is, where do you think it's going to take you?
Is that where you really want to wind up?
If not, the time to change your course is now. While there is still time.
The What If Game
What if you could do anything you wanted to do with your time, energy and resources?
What if nobody would think any less of you if you pursued that dream?
What if you could wake up every day so thankful that you get paid to do what you love?
What would it take for you to make a change?

I love to co-create new lemon recipes with people who think they hate lemons.
