lemons don’t always turn into lemonade

Perspective is…everything. But you know, sometimes shit is just messed up. We’d all love to be able to turn negatives into positives. The truth is, lemons don’t always turn into lemonade.

I make decisions under false pretense and obligation a whole lot.

In relationships, “hope” and “potential” can be dangerous. The Soul, the Brain, the Heart all play a role in our decision-making. They’ve all undergone conditioning, judgement, punches and kicks. Therefore, decision-making isn’t always free of external influences.

You thought you made the right decision. It came from a place of love, hope…a potential to heal. Then it blows up in your face.

Are you sure guilt didn’t have anything to do with it? Is doing the “right thing” truly the right thing? Outsiders may think so. It may be the right thing for them, but is it for you?

Relationship dynamics can be very tricky. It’s family. Till death due us part. Try, try and try. Keep trying to squeeze the juice from those lemons. You’ve been able to make some superb lemonade in the past. Why ever give up?

Well…

People plot, manipulate. They play martyrs because most people in their life have rewarded them for it.

The empaths, you know you’re such a sucker. Having a big heart is a great thing. But there lies most of your pain. The need to help and serve becomes crippling. When will you learn to draw boundaries? You allow everyone to pick the best lemons off your tree, all while you’re left with a bitter cup of lemonade. You fool yourself into…hey…at least I have something. It’s better than nothing. WRONG. You deserve what you give to the fullest extent in return. You are not less worthy, and your self-sacrificing doesn’t make you Mother Teresa. Furthermore, you see, when you’re on the right path whether it be in relationships or your life’s work, you will feel uplifted, not drained.

Take a close look at where you are in life. How do you feel? Perspective is everything, but your feelings matter also. I am reminded of something Tony Robbins said. He isn’t a believer in positive affirmations. You can chant there are no more weeds, no more weeds till you’re blue in the face, but it doesn’t work. You actually have to tend to the weeds. You have to do the work. MASSIVE ACTION.

So stop ignoring what you’re truly feeling deep down inside. Stop helping everyone else feel comfortable in their lives at the expense of yours. Get out that do not enter tape and block off your tree. Allow your lemons to fully ripen. And please, make yourself a fridge full of lemonade before letting others take from your tree first. Being giving is admirable. We need more givers. But that doesn’t mean your needs and happiness has to come last.

About me…let’s see….I would say I am a TRUE Virgo. If you knew me, then you would so agree. There are quite a few things I care deeply about. Off the top of my head, I would say with much passion, my family, friends, the environment and world peace. Oh and animals. Can't forget them. I think I love animals more than most humans, lol. I believe it’s important to surround yourself with good people. Be picky with who you let in your circle. The environment, the earth does not belong to us. We are merely just visiting for a period of time. So lets no abuse it. World peace, that’s a hard one. It’s not a perfect world, but wouldn't it be wonderful if every child, women and man were safe? We can’t change the world and every single soul living on earth. But one person can make a great difference in the surroundings in which they live. Wouldn't you agree? Let’s not forget what fuels my soul, music. It speaks for me when I can’t. It expresses my feelings when I am unaware of what they are. It has a way of lifting my spirits when I am down. It has this magical power that is able to touch my heart with just lyrics alone. I wouldn't know what I would do without it. Poetry, I love poetry. In all forms...written or spoken. I think that's it :) Wait, then there is God, the source of everything. Astrology, quantum physics, Abraham Hicks, Agape...I should just end this now, LOL.

Any thoughts?
