Lemons

Life gave me lemonade and I can't imagine why
Born on a sunny day, beneath a tangerine sky
I live life without pretending....




is a song i love listening to...its by Chris Rice.... 


So, today evening as i was listening and singing along, i remembered the saying "when life gives you lemons...." and got thinking about people, and how they react to situations and how different our perceptions are to the same situation.... 





When a problem/ obstacle/ challenge arises, i find people take various paths & that speaks volumes about them as a person....!! 


1. Shooters-





These are the people who want to take the bull  by the horn, and face the issues direct, with no beating around the bush...  they are so ready for problems,that they thrive on walking on fire, and perpetually battling demons... The minute they hear of a trouble, their mind kicks into action, and before you can spell LEMONADE, they'd have come up with alternatives, or methods to work through the chaos ... They mite not come up with an instant solution, but they know they can!!! Sometimes, they get carried away that they yearn for appreciation, and accolades.... 


2.Tortoises- 



Hmmm, well, like the tortoise in the Tortoise and hare story, these people wait, think about it  and then act smart.. They are in no hurry,  but heck, they are part of the rat race, except they arent aiming to race ahead and fall off the cliff in a rush... They mull over the issue, chew the cud a bit, and then churn it in their head for a while.. Thinkers - they can be found drawing various possibilities until they hit upon what they think will work for the circumstance... Slow and steady, you can be sure they will come out with a best possible solutions!! 


3.Bakers -





There are always the set of people who sit and wait for someone else to come up with an answer.. NO, they arent dumb!! Just that they have either been beaten down too many times, or just not the initiative taking, hyper, enthusiastic group of souls.. They would rather just chill, while they know the Tortoises or bang on's will rise to the situation, beating them to it !! They let the problem sit in their heads, like a loaf of bread baking in the oven, that needs to take its time to cook... So, if rushed, they will panic or freak out and fumble... !! They are slow, but not really the smartest cookie in the jar... The cookies that get left behind cos no one wanted em, till others have no choice is where they belong...!! :)


4. Ice Creams -





Just like how ice creams sit in the freezer,unless someone decides "I want an ice cream now" ... this category of people will just sit tight, not doing anything...  they've pretty much settled for what they've got in life, not being too gungho about anything... Sitting there, probably just counting sheep, they wait for the next hand to reach out to them...Again, since there are so many flavors to choose from, who knows when that lone "Black current sundae" will get its turn.. Maybe when the freezer is nearly empty,with just a few others left...  They are scared, keep hoping their luck will change,but unsure of when that will happen.... Wish more people liked Black current flavor..i sure love it , for then they would realise how amazing the flavor is and what they were missing out on !!!  :-)


Made any sense???? 


Ok, now take a minute and leave a comment on what is the 1st thing that pops in your head when you hear the phrase -- 

"When life gives you lemons .................................. "... [Shall leave mine too in the comment.. but dont cheat, dont copy!!! ;o)]


[Here is a pic i found on the net.. absolutely LOVE it...]

vishesh said...

me juggle with it first :P And as my marginal utility derived from the fun keeps decreasing, i think of an alternative use, which would satisfy something which i want.. :P

umsreflections said...

when life gives you lemons, i'll squeeze them and make lemonade and use the zest to make a lemon cheese cake !!!!

see, all i think, is abt food.

on a serious note, if the lemons are opportunities - when life gives you lemons, use them wisely and quickly, as the lemons will become spoilt over time !!!!

liked your introspection of ppl and the relation to the pics in the post.

Lakshmi said...

i will have lemonade...seriously, there is no one particular way to handle problems..i think human minds are way too complex to be straight jacked into one category ..our approaches vary and thats what ive realized in my own way of handling crisis and challenges

Vidya said...

I LOVE this post and your unique way of addressing different way with which people approach problems! When I life gives me lemons, I make a Michelada ( http://www.drinksmixer.com/drink5334.html)

"When life gives you lemons .................................. bring out the tequila and salt and call your girl friends over!

Swaram said...

Srivats said...

lemon, bun, ice cream waah now I got to figure a recipe. LOL

Good I think I am shooter plus bun baking hehe. The quote abt life was very good, inspires! :)

kanagu said...

I wish its ripe enough make juice :D :D

and this post is really nice.... everybody will fall in some category for sure...

vimmuuu said...

I fall somewhere in between the shooter and the tortoise !!! :D :D Btw, did you come up with these classifications urself ???

When life gives you lemons, I would think of writing a blog post on that just like how Aarti did ! :D

writerzblock said...

Yeah, even I want to know how you found these categories. Simply cos I fit into none!
"When life gives you lemons .................................. I would love to find some Soda to go with it...'
