When life gives you lemons make lemonade.
Such a simple concept yet most off us cannot seem to grasp the meaning of this quote. To me, the quote translates to "do the best you can with what you have right now." Many of us are too stuck on looking at what other people have that we neglect to see the blessings in front of us. When we were kids, however, we knew exactly what to do. Our imagination was never limited by our material resources. This is what this statement is really saying. Do not limit your imagination to what is in front you, but use the tools you have to accomplish your dreams. I am a strong believer that life gives you what you need at the time that you need it; and she will challenge your imagination at any point in time. Often times what we call obstacles are usually opportunities for our spiritual growth. So do the best you can with what you have right now.
