...Make lemonade? Or how about..."when life gives you lemons...throw them back...really hard!"? I prefer the latter. The "making lemonade" approach implies that you take what is given to you and then "ah, let's just make the best of it".
Here's an example of "making lemonade" : Someone ( we'll call him Bob) says something crappy to you, and you then say "Well, Bob's just having a bad day" or " Hey, thanks Bob, you've always been a keen observer, and you're valuable information has greatly improved my life".
Okay, now here's my approach to dealing with life "giving me lemons": "Blow it out your ass Bob!". See, my way is active; it makes you feel really good; and...Bob learns a little about how he should keep some of his "wisdom" to himself. This approach works best if Bob isn't your boss or an officer of the law.
