When life hands you a lemon…

In life, there will always be negativeevents’. But do not let them become negativeexperiences’.


I am a firm believer in the saying “experience is not what you come across. It is what you do with what you come across”. Yes! You may never have control over what happens to you, but more often than not, you can still have control over what you let it do to you. Thus whenever you go through something unpleasant, try to see it in a light that makes it look less dark.

See it as a learning you required at this point of time, a teaching that was long due, a cue for solving a problem, a hint for making a decision, a nudge from destiny towards a preordained route, or simply a message from the guy up-there that will make sense sometime down the line. So, a ‘negative feeling’ could be a natural first reaction, but a ‘positive inference’ should be the end-point.

This way, rather than growing cynical with every passing year, you will become a person who has…


…been there…done that!
