Lemonade


Hello All, Wish you a very happy new year. I hope 2009 is all that you had wished for and more. Although I am wishing for your dreams to come true, please know that the power is in your hands as well to make your dreams and ambitions come alive!

Well, I brought in the New Year with great fun and frolic. I was on one of my favourite beaches in the world, with some champagne and fireworks...it was absolutely perfect. Then an hour later some where out of the blue, life threw a BIG FAT SOUR LEMON at me. I mean really sour!! Here I was having a great time, feeling mellow..thinking things couldn't be better...and out of the blue comes this ugly lemon with a post it on it saying "SUCK on this!!".

Ordinarily I would have been thrown and life would quickly fall apart...I nearly did. Then I thought to my self...what have I learnt in all these years?? If I let this happen to me again and again...where have I evolved?!! So this time round (after much tears and thinking) I said..OK BRING IT ON...I am so gonna make a lemonade out of this lousy friggin lemon. Its gonna be the best lemonade I have ever had...heck it gonna be even better than Champagne!!

So, for me 2009 is going to be about lemonade. Come on throw me a few sour ones and I am so gonna open a lemonade stall. In 2009, Lemons will be used to bring in refreshing lemonade into our lives and not just a whole load of sourness. Well, I have the entire year to find out. This year will be the YEAR OF LEMONADE!! With that thought, for the first first time I look destiny squarely in the eyes and say Cheers to you and me! I look forward to this challenge.

You all have a brilliant year ahead and see if you can make your lemons into lemonade as well. Do we have the power to change our destiny when we decide enough is enough??

Seed for thought??

Neha... i dont know how you manage it, but your incessant, constant, complete optimism is compelling. Please ignore sarcy vibes from grumpy ol men like me (or Chinna)... deep down we know the world needs folks like you to keep the faith

small miracle said...

Sounds GREAT to me. Like I said, its gonna b a year of Lemonade ; )

chirag said...

done, then we can also pack the juice in bottles, let it rot for a while and sell lime cordial across the world! we'll make lottsa money neha! we could even start lemonade bars or maybe lemonade vans or even lemon flavoured water! oh and we could also have a bakery that specialises in lemon cakes or maybe a grill that sells lemon marinated chicken....or how about a lemon garden where people come and breathe the lemony air and pay us for it...

small miracle said...

Hmmm... I knew the concept of turnin the damn sour lemons into refreshing lemonde is the way to go forward. Thanks, we are so gonna rock 2009! ; )

Small Miracle said...

Exactly a year later. I am happy to report that I did turn every Sour Lemon into very fine Lemonade. It wasn't easy..heck...it was clearly my version of what Hell might be.

I made it. I survived it.

I chose a FREE life over a suffocating life of smoke and daggers. I did it with dignity and grace. I did the best way I knew how.

Today for the first time I feel like HUGGING ME!!
