So, what do you do when life gives you lemons?
Here's my suggestion. CAUTION: FOUL LANGUAGE AHEAD.
You take the lemons and carefully cut them in half. When all your lemons have been halved, you pick them up and with as much aggression as possible, whip them back at life. It will probably help if you say something along the lines of:
"Take your fucking lemons because I refuse to settle for the shitty-ass hand you've dealt me. Now fuck off!"
And hopefully, you've hit life square in the face, causing the acidic juices to escape the lemon halves, enter and burn life's eyes out.
|I found this after I wrote my post. Clearly I'm not the only one receiving a lot of lemons.|
Pros: You eventually get what you want, you learn an awful lot along the way, you get to point and laugh and all the people who dared get in your way.
Cons: You will become jaded and when the moment comes, you likely won't want to point and laugh at the people who attempted to screw with you.
I have mastered this philosophy. The only remaining thing I want to tell life at the moment? Kiss my ass and come get your damn lemons because I've no use for them!
As you can see, I haven't had a very good day. I spent the day venting, I'm going to go to bed early, I'm going to wake up in the morning, I'm going to pick myself up and I'm going to move on and do what I do best. Because that's what you do. You don't take the lemons. You don't make lemonade.
