Grapes, gratitude, and lemons

I’m eating excellent grapes these days, and I feel so grateful about that.

Just a few minutes ago, while I was having some, lemons came to mind instead.

Gratitude and optimism are closely connected. Just as optimism and lemons.

You know what I mean. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

That’s just how an optimist thinks. Simple and powerful. And extendable.


If life gave you lemons in lieu of grapes, don’t gripe about it. Some got rocks.

And if you got rocks, you can’t really complain: someone got nothing at all.

And if you got nothing, what’s the matter? Where there’s life, there’s hope.

And if you’re dead, now that’s great! All your problems are forever gone.
