This I Believe

I believe that if life hands you lemons, you should make lemonade. I know that this is a little overused but I have found to be very true throughout my entire life, especially now.

I am sure that somebody has told you to make the best out of anything no matter what happens. And I have done just that. I recently just got laid off from a bowling ball manufacturing job and I thought that my world was crash around me. I had just moved out of my parents five months before, had a truck payment, and all the other usual bill. All that and I didn’t have a job.

After being laid off a while I realized that since I am laid off, I have more time to study for college. The more time you study, the better grades you get, the better grades you get the better job you get. And since you get that better job you don’t have to worry about getting laid off.

Just believe in yourself, stick it out and make the sweetest lemonade you have ever had.
