When Life gives you Lemons, make Lemonade!

"When life gives you lemons, make lemonade". This is what Betsy  told me, always make the best out of all situations.

This past few months were probably the hardest part of my life after the last five years. Some of you may knew very well what I've been battling of and why I've been in this ups and downs and needs constant uplifting. Yes, I confided to my blogger friends, through personal emails and thank you for your support. People here and there keeps on reminding me how good and wonderful life is and keeps on reminding me to count the blessings and look on the bright side of life.

What had happened the last time could be considered one of the biggest trials and tests in my life. I stumble and fall, then standing up again after the wrath. The process maybe difficult but it's worth it in the end. Believe me! Some trials are even blessings in disguise, because through it, I realized that:

  • there are other people around me, who loves me so much but were taken for granted and now maybe the best time to make it up to them.
  • I started this blog a year ago but never dedicated myself to it. After that incident, I looked for the best way to pour my attention and pooof, 14th street is my masterpiece.
  • I was able to go back to my reading hobby and guys look at my shelf.....was able to read them all in 2 months due to severe boredom.
My shelf from shelfari.com
  • I was able to meet wonderful friends from around the world with the same hobby as mine - blogging, and I could say that I have the best blogger friends in the world.
And a part of who I am now, I owe to my blogger friends who constantly comforts me when they know I'm down and bears with me when I couldn't post a nice one. Life is indeed marvelous and we should always remember, there is always a time for everything.


  1. awwww..that's sweet. I also meet a lot of wonderful people thru blogging and that includes YOU!! keep the faith sey...

  2. Two days ago, I spilled some very very hot soup on my hand and severely burned it. Later that day, I went to the store and bought enough lemons to make a whole pitcher of homemade lemonade. It made me feel better! Makes me think that whoever thought up that phrase was enjoying a nice glass of lemonade at the time. :)

  3. Oh Sweet Sey, You are going to make it out of this 'funk' in your life.... You will make lots of LEMONADE---and find some true happiness. Someday you will look back on these days and wonder why you allowed the depression to control you so much.... Keep on Keeping on... One day at a time..

  4. I love the line "there is always time for everything." I should always keep that in mind.

  7. Pretty Sey, Just want to share this with you...I started blogging when I first found out that my Dad have Cancer and that was 5 years ago, aside from the Lord, family and friends, my blog has been my best friend - it is the only place where i can just cry a bucket of tears and write everything I felt. And I was really happy that I've meet a lot of blogger friends all over the world that continuesly prays for my family and always there to support and comfort me.
