Lemonade Blessings – Working With What You Have

They say when life gives you lemons you should make lemonade.  In other words use those sour lemons to make something that’s sweet, thirst quenching and yummy.  Let’s turn that statement around and apply it to you (and me, too).  Use life’s ugly, mean, sour situations to produce a result that is beautiful, sweet and fruitful.  We have got to work with what we’ve got.  So, my question to you is – what are you working with and how can you transform it into something positive and useful?  Are you working with a bad job, little money, much debt.  No matter how bad it is, I'll bet it can some how, some way be changed into something better.  Where there's a will there's a way.  Don’t forget about the lesson learned and the life you experience during the event.  Remember, every “bad” situation is an opportunity to learn, grow and be strengthened.  What did you learn?  Did you grow spiritually?  Has your relationship with God been strengthened by all of this?  I know it will be tested.  Now, let’s get back to the original title above – Lemonade Blessings - Working with What You Have.  What do you have and are you really using it to your advantage and working with it to arrive at a better outcome?  I call that outcome a lemonade blessing – at first you begin the journey, task, day, life or project with lemons, but then you realize once you make a few minor adjustments (still working with those sour lemons) that you can transform the very thing you’re working with; from something you dislike or even despise to something you actually like; from something you think you'll never, ever, ever accomplish to a "been there, done that" cheer.  Here’s my new outlook: 
Use what you’ve got to get what you want.
