Everyone’s heard it at one point in their life… “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." Who was the original author though? Grandma? It seems to be one of those quotes that just has entered public consciousness and is pervasive. Strangely enough though, the origin of the famous saying hasn’t been lost yet. Dale Carnegie was the man who coined the phrase though he’s mostly known for writing the famous book “How to win friends and influence people." Of course, everything slowly gets out of context eventually, so why not update the phrase to our modern times?

Or if you prefer to be self-reliant and independent, pull out the right recipe for a lemon cake. The secret is to turn bitter into sweet and darkness into light.
