Sometimes Life Throws Frozen Lemons At You

Sometimes Life Throws Frozen Lemons At You

Sometimes life is good and sometimes life throws frozen lemons at you and happens to hit you right between your eyebrows. That’s the thing about life. It has its ups and downs. And for whatever reason, depending on your beliefs, the downs are here to stay. And during specifically difficult moments in life it feels like the downs are never going to leave.

We all have our own trauma, our own baggage. It’s a part of life. We all have had frozen lemons thrown our way. The important thing is to not let those traumas destroy us. Each trauma or wound we suffer is like a dagger through our heart. And when we don’t process that trauma the dagger stays there instead of the wound healing. And if we take out all the daggers at once, we do even more damage. That’s why we have to take out one dagger at a time and give ourselves time to heal that wound before trying to work on another one. And yes, we may be left with scars from these wounds but they will no longer be open, bleeding wounds.

And that is what I’m working on at the moment. Healing one wound at a time. It’s a long process and quite difficult but it’s worth it.

So what was the point of this post? I know it was a little random. Well, the point is I may not publish a post tomorrow as I’ll be busy. I just have a tendency to ramble about unrelated things. But it’s still some solid stuff so feel free to use this as motivation to heal past wounds. So yes, sometimes life throws frozen lemons at you but it’s up to use to take those lemons and throw them right back at life.

  1. Sometimes we just have to speak with another presence without interaction needed.

    1. You’re right and when we talk to certain people you just end up feeling better.

      1. It’s a relief to find them.

  2. When frozen lemons come at me, they do so in a can of concentrate. Ducking is key.

    1. Haha yes, ducking helps too.

  3. Not random at all, Pooja, keep on doing what is best for you and be healed! 🥰

    1. Thanks so much! Therapy is helping a lot and I already feel better 🥰❤️

      1. Wonderful. ❤️

  4. Life always comes with such details, otherwise it wouldn’t be life. The most important thing is to know what to do with them, to learn them, to classify those that contribute to us and to discard those that do not help us at all. From this selection, our course along the path of life will be lighter.
    A pleasure to read you.
    Greetings and have a nice evening, friend Pooja.

    1. I absolutely agree. It’s all about being selective. Thanks so much and have a great weekend.

  5. We take the rough with the smooth, Pooja G. The swing of the pendulum… as above so below. Good post my friend. 💙👏👏

    1. Absolutely, with darkness comes the light. Thanks so much. 💖

      1. Anytime Pooja G. Hope you’re well.

        1. I am and hope you are too.

          1. Thank you dear

            1. You’re very welcome 😊

  6. Healing is a slow process, with its own ups and downs. It’s good that you are addressing this relatively early in life, to unshackle yourself from wounds of the past. Take good care. 🙏🏼

    1. Exactly, life has its ups and downs. Thanks so much.

      1. You’re welcome!

  7. Sending you hugs 🤗
    Hope you have a good day tomorrow.

    1. Thanks so much, have a great weekend 🤗

      1. You’re welcome. Thanks

        1. You’re very welcome.

          1. 💚💛🤍

  8. Pooja, as always, this blog also shows us the truth of life. Thanks for the fantastic blog😊👍

    1. Thanks so much! 😊

      1. 😊🙏🙏My pleasure, Pooja!

      2. My pleasure, Pooja! 😊🙏🙏🙏🙏

  9. When life throws you frozen lemons, catch them and make lemon sorbet 🍋 Cold, sour, with a hint of sweetness.

    1. Lol, absolutely 🍋

  10. 🙂 You reeled in my attention with the title of your post, Pooja.

    May the time off from blogging pay off for you.

    1. Thanks so much and it did, I had a fun day away from my devices 😊

  11. I question anyone saying life is perfect, without problems or lemons. They say when you get dealt with lemons make lemonade. We learn how to handle it. Have a good weekend!

    1. Yeah, we all have ups and downs. I think people who say life is perfect tend to repress the bad. Anyway, I agree it’s all about making lemonade from our lemons. Have a good weekend too!

  12. they say time is the key for those daggers… we hope on that and in the process become skilled “frozen lemon catchers” 😉

    hugs your way🤗🤍

    1. True, time helps a lot. Thanks 🤗

      1. always a pleasure 🤗🤍

  13. I hope you are proud of yourself and the work you are doing to heal yourself.

    1. I am, thank you.

  14. Heal one wound at a time! Beautiful said!!

    1. Absolutely, one at a time! Thanks!

  15. Insightful and inspiring blog post Pooja. Well, I agree with you on this aspect of frozen lemons that life throws at us right in between our eyebrows.

    Also, as the saying goes “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade” and yes, it is hard to make a sweet thing from a sour experience but as time progresses and goes it is definitely possible.

    Lastly, the downs and bad issues we all have seem like they will stay and not leave but eventually, they will go. I as well am not okay but I believe in God and he has good plans for my life. I just need to have faith🙏

    1. Thanks so much. Yes, life always throws us lemons but it’s up to us to make lemonade 🍋

  16. Enjoy your time off! Interesting post. Yes, we all have ways to deal with trauma and to heal.

    1. Thanks so much! Yes, absolutely. We all have our own ways to deal with it.

  17. Take care!!

    Sending some love.

    See you soon 🤗🌼

    1. Thanks so much! 😊

        1. I’m good, how about you?

  18. Well, I for one, am sick and tired of all those bitter lemons life pelts us with. So, I’ve thawed them out and sell them as invisible ink bulbs on ebay. 😉

    1. Ha! That’s one way to make the best of it 😅

  19. I know what I do with frozen bananas, I make banana bread. You can make lemon bread with frozen lemons, I think it’ll be just fine although I have never tried it before. You can also get the seeds out of the frozen lemons and put them in soil, they will hopefully sprout and turn into lemon trees eventually. This one I tried, it worked, we got like 12 saplings that we ended up selling.

    1. I’ve never had banana bread but it sounds delicious. I’ve tried to lemon bar treats that are delicious and a great way to use up lemons.
      That’s wonderful, I think lemons and limes grow quite fast.

  20. When life throws frozen lemons at me, I just pray I don’t get a concussion 😉

    Glad you are comfortable enough to share and take a day off from blogging.

    1. Lol, yes it’s best to pray the bruises go away soon haha. Thanks so much.

  21. that s what j c fogerty calls ramble tamble or the op priest ramble bramble

    1. You know I love my ramble ramble brambles…

      1. with specs on brow you think what shall i post to my you tube stations nowz?>

  22. We all have our challenges, Pooja. We can turn those frozen lemons into lemonade if we try hard enough. Enjoy your break.

    1. I absolutely agree, I think no one in the world has a perfect life. It’s up to us to do our best with the life we have.
      Thanks so much.

      1. My pleasure, Pooja.

    1. Thanks so much, it’s definitely not easy but I think with enough work I should get better.

      1. Heal and move forward in a healthy direction. You’ll get there!

        1. Thanks, I already feel much better and feel as though a lot of anger I was holding on to is gone!

  23. Frozen Lemons. I’m good use that more.

    1. Thanks so much.

  24. Frozen lemons. Ouch! But an apt metaphor. My traumas have built up, having had more than one heart attack (not a metaphor). And these are the easier traumas to identify.

    I hope you have a grand, healing weekend.

    1. Sorry about that. Unfortunately, sometimes trauma manifest and affect us physically too. Hopefully, you can process and heal from your traumas too.

      Have a wonderful weekend too.

  25. I actually needed to hear something like this so thank u. I like the idea of throwing lemons back at life instead of making lemonade 🙌🤣

    1. Haha thanks! 😅

  26. healing does take time, it is a process, and by rushing through it, and as you said, more damage can be caused by removing too many daggers at once. One step you will get there, we all will.

  27. When life hands you lemons, freeze them and throw them at the people making life difficult!!! (JK) Heal away, dear Pooja!

    1. Haha exactly, thanks!

  28. Always count your blessings; they could be frozen melons hurled at ten times the speed!

    1. Absolutely!

  29. All the best on your healing journey Pooja!

    1. Thanks so much!

  30. I hope you have a good day tomorrow, Pooja, and it’s good that you’re taking care of yourself. Sending healing hugs your way. xo

    1. Thanks so much, really appreciate that!

  31. Good for you! Keep healing, one wound at a time. That tis actually the best way, and interestingly, as we focus on healing one particularly bad wound, sometimes we find that the lessons and skills learned help the other wounds to heal faster, so it isn’t all a long slow slog.

    Do get good sleep, eat nourishing food and take time to relax so it isn’t all a hard uphill climb.

    1. Thanks so much! Absolutely, I think we learn from each wound we heal.

  32. On good days, enjoy it. On bad days, rest. You’ll wake up tomorrow and feel the sunshine on your face. All will be well.

    1. Thanks so much. Absolutely, things get better over time.

  33. Make frozen lemonade and enjoy it! Those frozen lemons do hurt but, we must find a way to keep on going no matter what the circumstance. Throwing the lemons back is a good way to tell life “I’m still standing”.

    1. Absolutely! It’s all about making the best of what we’ve got.

  34. Interesting article and can relate to dealing with trauma bit by bit 🙂

    1. Thanks so much and yeah slowly is the best way to heal.

  35. Pooja! Praying you are healing.

    1. I am, thank you!

      1. You’re welcome!

  36. I thought you were going to say to just make lemonade. Some helpful advice here Pooja. Thanks for caring. Hope your wounds are healing too.

    1. Lol, lemonade doesn’t always cut it. Thanks and they are. Slowly but surely healing.

  37. […] was inspired by some inner work I have been doing recently. I’ve talked about this on earlier posts, but currently my therapist and I are working on healing old wounds and reconnecting with my inner […]

  38. Lately, life has been throwing a lot of frozen lemons at me 😂

    1. Well, now you know what to do with them 🍋😅

  39. If you’re able to unfreeze those lemons, you can make Lemonde. 😊 Trials make you stronger.

    1. Absolutely, life is tough but I think those moments teach us important lessons.

      1. They sure do.

  40. I’m making froze n lemongrass aide and moving into healing as we speak Pooja.. Thanks for sharing. Dark times teach us as much as light times, if not more.. xo 💗

    1. That works too! Absolutely agree with that 👏🏽

      1. I’m drinking it now and love it!!

        1. Oh good, hope it makes you feel better! 💖

          1. Thanks, I’m sure it’s working❣️

            1. I’m so happy to hear that, sending you lots of positive energy 💕

  41. We should also remember that frozen lemons double up as ice cubes

    1. Yes, that too.

  42. Good post Pooj. It’s true that it is up to us to change how we think, feel, and understand the struggles of life. Yes some may be harder to move on from but it’s important to keep trying.

    1. Thanks so much. I agree, some are tough to move past but it’s important to do our best.

  43. I can relate to this post so much! Throughout my life I have had so many frozen lemons thrown at me I probably have a bruise! After reading this post it has helped me realize that i am doing my best and taking one thing at a time. Thank you for posting this and helping me realize to take a step back and do things one at a time!

    1. Thanks so much! I’m sorry you went through that and yes it’s important to keep fighting back.
