Life is Good

Photo Credit: Bob Fornal
When life hands you a bowl of lemons, you make lemonade.  

When life throws you a curve ball, hit a home run.  

When life catches you by surprise, smile, it can turn your day around.  

When life breaks your heart, cry and move on.  

Life is good.  Never let it get the best of you.

Written for Friday Flash 55.


  1. It takes effort, but turning the negative into the positive is a great way to approach life. Wonderful 55, Linda!

  2. smiles. yeah there is a lot of good that can get lost in the junk if we dont look for it...

  3. Right on! I love it! Nice 55!

  4. Life is like an EKG - it goes up and down. When it is flat......

    Great 55.

  5. Linda,

    I like this 55 because I feel like your wise self wrote it for you, as much as for me:~)

    It was very well done!

    Happy Friday, my friend. Keep hitting those home runs:~)

  6. Words to live by, Linda. Not always easy to do, but doing it is so worthwhile!

  7. Linda...
    What a positive uplifting post.
    Loved your 55 My Friend..
    We all should have this attitude.

  8. Talon- Thank you. It definitely takes effort!

    Brian Miller- I guess we need to keep on looking for the good.

    Eric 'Bubba' Alder- Thanks!

    Monkey Man- Thanks! Interesting analogy.

    Sara- Thank you! Hope it helps both of us.

    Linda- No it is definitely not easy.

    G-Man- Thank you.

  9. Life is the best dang thing I know! Some days I still can't believe I'm here, it's all so amazing.

    Linda, you are an optimistic one and a rare treasure!


  10. Mama Zen- Thank you.

    Jannie- Life is good, I'll agree, but honestly, I'm not as uplifting and optimistic right now as this piece would indicate. Maybe I'm just trying to convince myself. Still, it is good to still be here!

  11. Did you post this for ME?! Ha Ha! I read it and smiled - what perfect timing for me to read this!

  12. Katherine- I am glad it made you smile. When I sat down to write my "55" the thing about making lemonade from lemons popped into my head, and I went with it. Hope you are feeling better.
