When Life gives us Lemons...
We all know the old saying, "When life throws you lemons, make lemonade! With today's visualization exercise, we are going to make Lemonade. No, not really. Today we are going to learn how you can face life's challenges with more ease. Let's visualize your turning your first lemon into lemonade.
Close your eyes, breath in deeply through your nose and exhale slowly through your mouth. Repeat until you are completely relaxed. Once you are completely relaxed, you will be ready to begin.
Visualize yourself jamming to your favorite tunes as you drive home from work. All of a sudden,something doesn't sound right. You hear a "clunk, clunk, clunk" coming from your car. You carefully guide your car to the side of the road, turn on your hazard lights, step out of your car and evaluate the situation. You quickly discover that you have a flat tire! You walk around to the back of your car, open the trunk and retrieve the spare tire, car jack, and lug wrench. You quickly remove the flat tire and replace it with the spare. How great does it feel having strong arms and knowing that you can change the tire without calling for roadside service? You replace the hubcap, jump in the drivers seat, and you are once again back on the road. How do you feel knowing that you can overcome obstacles that arise without warning?
