When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade right?
I want us all to try an experiment. Let’s each of us, try thinking only positive thoughts for one week. If someone cuts you off in traffic, you have to look for the silver lining, send the guy love and all that. Who knows, maybe by cutting you off in traffic, you end up slowing down and avoiding a massive collision. If you gain two pounds this week, you have to think of how wonderful each and every bite of food was this week, and savour the feeling of abundance. If you feel resentful or annoyed by another person, you have to focus on the good they’ve brought you in life.
Think of the chain reaction you could start. By smiling at a stranger today, maybe you make them feel better. Maybe they donate to a charity because they are feeling a little brighter. Maybe through that charity a homeless person gets back on their feet. Maybe we can even stop war! Maybe at the end of the week, there will be world Peace and the Economy will be re-boosted! Ok, ok, I admit, it’s easy for me to get carried away. So maybe we won’t stop war or change the whole planet, but maybe one of our lives will be irrevocably changed for the better. Maybe it will just change someone's perception; every life does have some good, and when you start too look around you and take notice of it, you can't help but feel good. Sure there is crap out there, but if we focus on only the bad, it's not too far fetched to think that's how we'll end up feeling too. Maybe our little experiment is a cleanse for the soul. And cleanses are trendy these days, so you'll be feeling positive and trendy! Seriously, feel free, to pass this challenge on to people, and send them here to read about it. You never know who out there needs a challenge or a goal or a pick me up like this. The worst that could happen is that we do a little good around here.
All I’m asking, is for one week, choose lemonade.
