Eat the Lemons Life Offers You

It has been said
“When life hands you lemons”
You should make lemonade
But what about tasting them instead
Before we squeeze them
Experience the lemons
Mindfully
it makes sense to me
Because I actually like lemons
I like the bitter pucker experience
as much as I like lemonade
So while I make the lemonade
Out of the lemons I’ve got
I taste a few of them in the process
And the whole thing together
Is the experience
And I’m much better having
The experience
Than resisting it

When life offers you lemons,

eat them
