When life throws you lemons ~ Things in life don’t always go as planned

Where are the recipes?

You’re probably wondering why I’ve chosen the name for this site with no recipes for lemonade…stay tuned! 

The Best Laid Plans….

“Its all part of the plan….more or less”

Boy oh boy, if I had a penny for every time things went sour or just plain didn’t go the way I had hoped, I’m confident I would be wealthy enough pay off the national debt and still have money to live comfortably for the rest of my life.

The old saying.

You’ve no doubt heard the old saying, When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.   (Gives? more like throws you lemons, right in your face.).
At the risk of throwing a bunch of platitudes around, there’s another old saying: Life is 10% what we make it and 90% how we take it. We can’t do anything about the 90%, but we can sure do something with that 10%, which helps with the 90%, and that’s where making lemonade in Paradise comes in.

Paradise? Its all in the attitude

where does anything begin?  It all begins with a thought, a state of mind if you will,

An inner calm.   Life isn’t always going to be a bowl of cherries. In fact, most of the time it’s going to be the pits and it depends on your feelings about it what you make of it.

I like to think that I should go after any task that I have with joy and enthusiasm,  giving a 110% effort as though it were my dream job. Now I know that sounds really corny but it does work. And a few pictures of paradise……


like a beautiful beach…..


….or the mountains?

that helps a lot too.
Am I suggesting that you put posters or pictures of tropical beaches or the mountains or whatever you consider Paradise to be, all over your living room walls and bedroom walls or various other places?

Well if that helps by all means do that.  But that may not be for you.  The euphoria you create comes from inside you that’s where everything starts you choose your thoughts every single day your thoughts become words and words become actions.

Its all what you make of it

Its all up to you and I hope I have helped
