How’s the saying go “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade?” πŸ‹ Make the most of what we are given. I do love a good quote and it just so happens that today August 29th is National Lemon Juice Day.

According to wikipedia the earliest print version of this phrase is credited to Elbert Hubbard when he wrote:

“A genius is a man who takes the lemons that Fate hands him and starts a lemonade-stand with them.” –

– Elbert Hubbard

Making the best of bad situations or improvising with what you have can also be a superpower. πŸ’₯
