I have come to the conclusion that when life serves me lemons, I should make lemonade and lemon tarts with them. I realize that one of the important lessons in life is to balance what you have now and where you want to be. How to enjoy and make use of the resources you have now and also plan for the future. I find myself trying to gather and think of making the “lemon tarts” in my life and forgetting that in the meantime, I can still use those lemons and fix myself a jug of refreshing lemonade with some mint and syrup.
I guess this is probably a reinterpretation of a quote from my all time favourite book, The Alchemist:
“The Secret of Happiness lies in looking at all the wonders of the world and never forgetting the two drops of oil in the spoon.”
(This is the only oil related photo I could find on my computer, I know it’s more than two drops of oil but I love and miss the random experiments at Proef!)
