Here’s a new thing to do with life’s lemons.
You’ve heard the sayings, when life gives you lemons…make lemonade, a lemonade vodka, gin & tonic, lemon bars, (usually it’s something food or beverage related). Well one of the single best mood lifters for me, is surfing.
Maybe not at Malibu with 600 people on a weekend when there is a swell, but most of the time, it makes me feel better, puts things into perspective, is a stress relief, calms me down, makes me smile, and is my go to happy pill. In fact when I am feeling down, (or like lemons are being chucked at me from all angles) 98% of the time it’s because I haven’t been in the water enough.
So I say, the next time life gives you lemons, squeeze one of them in your hair, and go for a surf.
Maybe you’ll even score some free highlights. More likely from the sun and saltwater though, since the lemon juice will probably rinse off when you hop in the water.
SWELLivin. (AKA one of my favorite weekly posts to write.)
