I think that maybe we are all a bit like a Trojan horse, parked in place in our individual lives with a bunch of stuff inside which is just waiting for the dark in order to jump out and attack.
I think that sometimes you simply cannot make lemonade out of lemons no matter how much you’d like. Because sometimes, regardless of how you’ve planned, you just flat run out of enough sugar.
I think that sometimes we have to allow, for ourselves or for others, that there’s a lot inside that Trojan horse with no safe way to get it out because there hasn’t been enough time yet. Or the lemonade is seriously short of sugar right now because there hasn’t been time, energy, money, or means to get to the store.
I think that I need to allow myself and others to deal with and accept our individual Trojan horses and lemons.
I think what I can do is to try every day to replace something sour and/or dark with something sweeter or lighter.
I also think – for myself and for others – that there are times and seasons in life it is not possible.
Whenever you have the chance, kick out something dark.
Fill what you can with sugar.
Don’t judge anyone else’s lemonade.
And if your horse and lemonade aren’t being too much trouble right now, find someone else who could use some help emptying, filling, and sweetening.
