Darryl Bachmeier Dec 8, 2020 Life

“When life gives you lemons, make lemonade”. We have all heard this phrase when facing adversity and tough challenges in our lives. This mantra calls for an optimistic outlook towards life, but is it really all that simple? For a lot of us, life just keeps throwing one roadblock after another, and we can’t find ourselves catching a break. At these times, we often question what we did wrong to deserve this, leading to a road of despair and hopelessness. There is, however, another way to look at these bumps in our lives, a perspective that shares that life happens for us, not to us. Let’s have a look. What does this mean? Life happening for us, instead of to us entails that everything that has happened in our life is for our own betterment, even the negative experiences. All of our experiences, opportunities, and failures are there to improve...

The term also encourages people to moderate or limit the consumption of less healthy food. That is the kind of sense it creates in nutrition. Does It Work? The major challenge is that the course of the statement is open to interpretation. Some...

Craving for some time with just yourself is not an unusual feeling. In fact, it seems like a necessity sometimes to take care of your mental health.
