When Life Gives You Lemons: Start Throwing Them Back

When life gives you lemons, start throwing them back.

Ever heard the old saying when life gives you lemons then make lemonade? Well, nowadays when like gives you lemons we should all start throwing them back. Why sit back and let life run you over. Get up and move your ass forward. You may get knocked down from time to time but that doesn’t mean you have to stay there. Motivate yourself to get up and go towards your goal no matter how big or small it is.

Just when I started to move forward a bit I felt as if I was getting shoved backward once again. Only this time I decided not to let it push me down. Instead, I started to push back. I am determined to move forward and better my life no matter what obstacle comes in my way. I will jump all the hurdles in my path in order to reach my dream. I started a journey back in 2004 in which I gave up in 2006 like an idiot. So over the last 3 years, I have been debating whether or not to try again for this certain goal and with everything that has come against me over those few years– I was on the verge of giving up and having a breakdown.

However, instead of breaking down I decided to lift myself up and jump the big hurdle before me. I took a giant risk leaving my comfort zone for something more challenging. I am leaving an easy job where I sit at a desk and do office work to go back into the healthcare field in order to help people. I am once again getting my CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) license, which I had at the age of 17 and then I will move up from there through the other nursing programs.

So I’m here to tell you that it’s never too late to achieve something great if you really put your mind to it. I will be going through a 6-week course 4 days a week I have class as well as working part-time as an HTA (Hospitality Aide) all the while raising 3 kids as a single mother. Life has thrown me many curve balls but I keep batting. I don’t let it throw me out of the game. I will continue to fight and move forward. For those who don’t think I can do this, I will make it my mission to prove each and every one of you wrong. Nothing will break my spirit. I CAN DO ANYTHING!
