Pooh Bear once said “When you see someone putting on his big boots, you can be pretty sure an adventure is about to happen.”
Adventures are sure to happen when we take a look at our lives and realize some changes need to be made. Below is a note from a reader that really describes why Lemonade Makers was created and how it will support you on your adventures to come!
My name is Julie.
Since you found your way to this page, I am going to assume that you are at least in some part like me. I was meandering through Facebook and saw a meme (a picture graphic with a quote) that caught my attention.
Clicking on it I ended up on LemonadeMakers Facebook Page. I thought it was by chance, but now I know that it was divine direction. The way she wrote, the words she used inspired me.
Maybe you found this page the same way, or maybe your friend found it and then tagged you to read about it. Either way, I think that like me, you found your way home. The writing here is transformational. It opens doors that I never knew existed. There is an authenticity to the writing and a curiosity to it. She puts worlds of meaning out there in words and graphics to explore.
What I have discovered for myself is that it is transformational in nature. I find myself realizing things about my own life. It is so exciting to see what she comes up with next! When I realized that part of making my world a better place was transforming me, it all made so much sense. So many of the posts are like taking the language of my soul, and putting it into words that I can read.
"I don’t have to change anyone but me. It is such a relief to realize that. I just work on making me the best version of me. I fully accept and love myself, and when I do that I am ready to fully express myself out in the world."
When I show up this way, it is almost magical how the world mirrors that back to me. I take off my masks, and just be me. I am not saying that my world just magically changed. There were and continue to be some painful processes, but life is so much fuller and expansive when I am not trying to hide who I really am. Yes, I have lost some friends, but what I have gained in this process of ongoing transformation is truly remarkable.
"I am home."
I feel at home in my body, loving every part of me. I feel truly at home at my house. It now expresses who I am, instead of some decorator version of what is “popular”. I am at home, truly belonging to my tribe. I am no longer the square peg, trying to squeeze into the round hole. “I am fully and completely at home”. Like Dorothy says in the Wizard of Oz, there really is no place like home.
I think that the most amazing thing though is how it has shifted my relationship with my husband, I shifted and changed. Part of it was that I started being honest in my communication. Part of it was from truly loving every part of me, I was able to love him in a totally new way. That was the key to the door of our relationship going to a whole new level.
Transforming myself also improved my experience at work. Instead of just having a job, I now play in my brilliance. I bring the joy to my job, and it has shifted my entire experience of work. It has also impacted those that I work with. Something in my field of energy just shifted everything. So I don’t know how you found us, but I think that you may, like me, be finding home.
I hope that you will take some time and look through all of the rooms in our house.
"See what she has hiding behind the corners. Look in the drawers and out the windows. Pet the cats, run with the wolves and experience what we have to offer. Welcome to our home. Hopefully, like me, you will discover the way to your special unique home."
Maybe like me, there is some more to uncover about who you are, what your purpose is and how to make your dreams a reality. I look forward to learning more about you. In the meantime, look around and explore. We can’t wait to hear about what you think!
