So Beyonce made lemonade real popular this year with it being the title of her 6th album. I wasn’t a fan of the HBO special but I love the album.
Typically when we think of lemons, we think of a sour bitter substance. This is easily compared to tough times in our life when we expect something sweet but get a bitter result.
A lemon is oval shape, but what sets it apart is its thick skin. Lemons don’t bruise easily and it takes alot of work to peel them.
If you eat a lemon by itself, you will get the sour taste of a lemon and it’s bitterness. Some people are accustomed to this and having a bitter taste does not bother them. In fact they are okay with walking around with the sour look a raw lemon gives them.
Lemons are also used as chasers after drinking your favorite alcoholic beverage straight. After taking the strong hit from the liquor the acid from the lemon smooths things out. It doesnt make it taste better, just makes it tolerable. You know kind of how we do with certain situations. We tolerate things that we could make better, but instead we swallow our pride and take it straight.
Some people like lemon water. They put lemons in water and it looks good till you taste it. Then you find out it was an illusion. Just because it looks good and looks like the real thing, thats not always the case. You think you getting lemonade, in reality it’s just a watered down lemon. Its still sour, but it looks good
Lemonade is probably a favorite. Taking that sour lemon, mixing with some water and sugar to give it a good taste. Taking the negative and making it into a positive. We all want to turn lemons in lemonade at some point.
So ask yourself how do you like your lemons? Do you like to be bitter, and sour looking? How about tolerating a situation by taking things the quick way but not making them better? Are you looking like the real thing, but in reality still bitter and sour? Out here fooling
everybody but yourself. Or do you make the best out of the worst? Taking what was meant to be sour and making it sweet.
The thing about life is we will always get lemons. What you choose to do with them are up to you.
Me, i turn my lemons into apples and leave the world wondering how I did it.
