After reading today that the job losses in the United States continue to be on the rise, it made me think of that old saying “When Life Hands You Lemons, You Make Lemonade”. It’s certainly not to oversimplify a stressful, and terribly difficult time in 3.5 million families lives, but to reinforce the notion that there can be a positive amongst so much negative.
I am a true believer that when one door closes another one opens, and for many women these days, that is the truth! Women are being put in a unique position to provide for their families in ways that they have never had. Maybe some of you have lost your jobs or had a spouse or partner that has. Some of you are in that ever growing group, “The Sandwich Generation” and need unique and practical ways to provide for multi-generations of your family.
This brings me to one of my favorite topics to blog about, Taking Your Passion and Making It Happen! This particular economic climate is providing so many people with the opportunity to turn their passions into a career. I see this as a gift to our families to show them how to overcome obstacles and find true happiness in what feeds your soul!
If you find yourself at a crossroads, make sure to look deep within yourself and ask yourself “Am I/Was I doing what my true life’s purpose is?” If the answer is yes, congratulations to you! If you are hesitating, look into taking that road to true abundance and follow your heart, the money will come.
Keep this great recipe for lemonade with you, you deserve it!
