#753 “I believe when life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade...and try to find someone whose life has given them vodka, and have a party.”


A couple of insights we can take from this quote... 

1. Be Grateful 
In life, many of us take whatever we have for granted. I’m guilty of this! 
Sometimes, we fixate on what we lack versus what is already ours but yet are unappreciative of. 
Don’t lament. Regardless of whether what we possess seems sufficient relative to others or not, I gotta be grateful. Regardless of how dire a situation can be, remain positive (at least try to). However, being grateful isn’t akin to being contented, which leads onto the next point. 

2. Don’t be Too Easily Contented 
While one can derive happiness from being in a state of satisfaction and ease, the pertinent questions are: How easily should we be contented with what we’ve currently got? Does it mean we just heck it all? Not realize any of our potential? Don’t strive for improvement? 

Sometimes, we fixate on what is already in our grasp and miss out on potential opportunities to better ourselves. 

Don’t be so fixated on that stupid lemon. Look up. You might just spot the sweetest tangerine in that bush not far from where you are, just within the reach of an arm length if you bother to shimmy to the edge of your chair and grab it. 

Of course, if the pursuit of betterment of oneself culminates in utter despair and chronic worrying over failed goals, then it defeats the purpose after all. We can take a leaf out of Bob’s playbook. He remained positive in a crappy situation yet simultaneously strove for betterment.
