Sometimes you might experience a period when things are not going so well for you. It may seem as if many things are going wrong at the same time. You might get the feeling that you are standing in a storm and that it blows you down. But there are many others with you that go through times like these. The most important thing is how you deal with this. You can let the storm swallow you, but you can also choose to accept it and just try to make do. There is an awful lot of truth in the expression "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade". The best thing to do is to look at the possibilities and do something with it! The way you work from a setback is instructive and will only make you stronger!
She stood in the storm,
and when the wind did not blow her away,
she adjusted her sails
- Elizabeth Edwards
