When Life brings you lemons, you make Lemonade

So life goes up and down, I have learned that through out my life especially the last 2 years! There are times when life seems like nothing can go wrong and you have everything figured out, than there are times where you feel like nothing will never go right!
So there have been some bitter times in my life and some trials I have had to go through. And there are times when I handle the situations not well and other times I handle them better. But the last 6 months I have come to realize that your trials can become your sweetest moments in your life.  
About 8 months ago I went through something that I wasn't sure how I was going to make it, than I came to the conclusion that this trial was either going to break me or make me, and I decided to let it make me, and I never been so blessed in my life. I decided to not focus on my problems but to listen to others and help them with their trials and try to be everyone's best friend, and it's made the hugest difference in my life because I have discovered some amazing friends. Later I slowly came to realize that I couldn't be happier, and that you can conquer anything when you're close to the Lord and when you serve others.
Well now I'm back to similar experience that I was in 8 months ago, and what's interesting is sometimes when you're at your lowest you start to see the blessings that you have surrounding you. For example my parents and my friends, they are amazing, they are already helping me through this trial.  And since I have gone through this before I know that I can make it, but this time I have been blessed even more and I'm anticipating what will I learn through this trial, and anxious to see what I can be because of it. 
So what do you do when life gives you lemons? You make Lemonade!
