About Lostlemonade

This blog was created to give hope and motivation to people who have to start over in their lives.
Why “lostlemonade”?  — Lemonade, to me, has always been about sunshine and light. It oozes freshness and fun. Several years ago, I began to loose my “lemonade”. My job and my home life were sapping my moxie in little dribbles everyday. The shorter version of the long story (which will be revealed through this blog as we go through renewal together) is that one small change in my life, helped me see that I had lost myself in the process. So I began a journey to find my lemons and sugar and ice, pitcher, stirrer, everything, so that I could once again be about sunshine and light, freshness and fun.
Good days and bad days, I’ll be here. Feel free to join me.

Hello World!

Welcome to “the first day of the rest of your life”!!!.
Okay, very cliche’, but very appropriate. When I have bad days, for whatever reason – inhaled three cream puffs in 20 seconds, flipped off the driver who cut me off by screaming at the top of my lungs and beating the steering wheel – whatever the reason, I have to remind myself that tomorrow, I get to re-invent myself in the image I want to be and so it’s okay. Perfection is not what I strive to be, not even to my children. I strive to be the best version of me that I can be. So when I make mistakes, I make great ones and smile afterwards.  Today is the first day of the rest of my life.
