BlogPrompt Day 9

Find your favourite quote and blog about it!

I like "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade"

Apparently it began in the book "How to win friends and influence people" by Dale Carnegie and there are many variations on the theme.  I read it in book called "Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway" which I found very helpful in respect of taking on your demons and trying to beat them.

In  my last job I printed it out and put it on the wall by my desk.  It became known as 'ditty corner' and if I didn't change the 'ditty' for a while I would get moaned at!!  In a friendly, fun way of course!

Basically I guess it means that we all get things in life that we don't really want.  All we can really to is take what we are given and make what we can from it! Turn something sour into something sweet and lovely!! xx
