When life gives you lemons...
As the very old saying goes: when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.
I felt that now would be as good a time as any to talk to you all about this and maybe give you a little boost, it being exam season and all. The idea of this post being that I do not want you to worry. I know this is so much easier said than done, and you are well within your rights to feel disappointed, sad, angry, whatever you're feeling. But one thing I would ask of you is that you do not dwell on it too long.
Sometimes life throws curve balls at at us, and at the time we think it is the worse thing in the world, and maybe we even feel like we might not be able to reach our end goal- what ever it may be.
While at the time we may see our goal and think "gosh, I have no idea how I'm going to get there", I promise you, if it's really what you want, you will get there. It may mean that the road isn't as smooth, or straightforward as you were hoping. It may get though, there is no denying that, but you WILL get there eventually. You never know, that lemon may be the best thing that could have happened to you, you just don't know it yet.
Life can be blooming tough sometimes, but you are even tough. We are all capable of doing incredible things, we just need to find a way to unlock that fire inside. If you do fall, don't allow someone else to pick you up. You stay there as long as you need, as long as you do end up picking yourself up and dusting yourself down because I promise you, you will be stronger and more determined than ever in doing so.
You go make the best dam lemonade there ever was.
And remember to work hard, stay gracious and go kick life's butt. I have faith. x
