If you think life only brings you lemons - you will keep tasting bitterness.
If you complain about your life being full of lemons - you will keep tasting bitterness.
If you accept that, at this very moment, you're sucking a lemon - then, yes - you will taste bitterness.
But - you have the power to change your thoughts.
You can choose to stop sucking that lemon.
You can appreciate the vitamin C you received, drink lots of water to remove the taste, and know you've learned the lesson that if you keep on sucking lemons - you'll keep on tasting bitterness.
Once you make the decision that you no longer want bitterness in your life, then you can change your thinking to prevent it from returning.
Becoming aware of your unconscious thoughts gives you the power to create change. You can leave bitterness behind, and move forward towards your dream. You are never stuck in your present circumstances permanently.
Firstly, catch your thoughts that tell you how bad things are. Don't allow them to continue. Instead, immediately have a list of new thoughts to replace them.
Tell yourself all the things you can do, to take your focus away from the things you can't do (yet).
Maybe you want to live with a beautiful view, and you don't like where you live at present. Instead of feeling bad when you look around you, say how grateful you are to have a roof over your head, and a bed to sleep in. Collect every basic, simple thing you have in your life already.
Then walk to your nearest patch of green grass, the more attractive the scenery the better, and appreciate how nature is always close to you. It is free, and it will always be there. Until you can afford to make a trip, or buy a house with the view you dream of, feel happy that you can see and touch green grass here and now.
The more often you replace your bitter thoughts with those that make you feel better, you will find yourself noticing more small things that make you feel better.
It's the small things that you think, see, and feel every day that change your life.
Don't wait for someone to come along with a lemonade maker that will change your circumstances - it is your responsibility to create change. Your job is to believe you can do it!
If you need help to believe in yourself, and feel how you can let go of your negative thoughts easily while you relax, and visualize the dream you have waiting for you - please get in touch.
"However mean your life is, meet it and live it: do not shun it and call it hard names. Cultivate poverty like a garden herb, like sage. Do not trouble yourself much to get new things, whether clothes or friends. Things do not change, we change. Sell your clothes and keep your thoughts." ~ Henry David Thoreau
"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness." ~ Henry David Thoreau
