You know what’s funny about the lemon saying? It makes it sound as if lemons are a bad thing, when really, they are amazing! I was given a box of lemons this week and I have been using them like crazy, lemon iced tea (sipping some right now), lemon ginger chicken, and infused vodka, which are all possible because of the beautiful homegrown lemons that a friend gave to me. I still use the time old saying like everyone else does, though. It seems like I’ve been given a few sour lemons lately… one in particular. But I’ve weeded it out of my life and now I feel like I can make my way back to a positive way of being. I often let other people affect me way more than I should. It’s difficult to take your emotions away from a situation to see it objectively, but I am on my way to healing. I just let people get too close too easily, and sometimes it means that I get hurt. I like to believe the best in people, but some people don’t have the best intentions.
Now that I’m not attached to that sour lemon anymore, I feel like it is easier to focus on the things that really matter, like getting studio work done and taking care of my well being. I have started doing my daily Pilates routine again, eating more balanced meals, and I bought a bunch of fruits and veggies today. I also have a new friend to help me heal. It feels good to mesh with a kindred spirit– yes, I know that sounds very hippie/cheesy, but I feel like I am reaching a better state of mind, and I don’t know if I could have done it alone. My new friend is a sweet bush lemon 🙂
