When life gives you lemons...freeze them and throw them as hard as possible at the people that are making your life difficult.
How have I not thought of this before?! Really.
I know, I know, the best thing is to sublimate emotions, and to direct them towards a higher goal. But, deep down, we all that a pile of bullcrap and doesn’t work for mere mortals. Throwing lemons, on the other hand, does.
Of course, I’m not saying you to do it for real. You simply need to visualize it and fully feel the emotion/sensation/sheer joy that you would get from doing it. The exercise is exactly what any new-ager worth his salt, would suggest for manifesting your dreams. And what a fantastic way of expressing your anger!
They say that when negative emotions are expressed, we create more of them. Hmmm. Maybe.
All I know is that distracting myself from them, or trying to ignore them, doesn’t work. So I choose to to RAIN on them: To Recognise what I am feeling; to Allow that emotion, however icky; to Investigate why I am feeling that way; and then to Nurture myself.
And nowhere is it said that in nurturing yourself, you can’t imagine what it would feel like to throw frozen lemons at someone (don’t worry, I have triple-checked the literature on this).
I smile as I type because, with my aim, I would probably miss anyway. Sweet Lord, thank heavens I have many.
And with that, I have magically stopped stewing and am now off on my merry way, to enjoy the rest of my day.
Big smiles all round.
