Stories connect us, change us, and inspire us to do more and be better. Stories often give us an opportunity to assess our current circumstances and can validate both our triumphs as well as our tribulations and also provide us a template of sorts so we can reframe if needed and turn the lemons in our life into lemonade.
The ability to change a negative into a positive, to turn lemons into lemonade, and to then share that recipe with the world to prevent others from suffering is one of the most beautiful things a person can do.
The 20 storytellers in Lemonade Stand Volume III are full of heart and the definition of true heroes. Inside you’ll find stories from first responders, emergency service personnel, and military members who have faced the elements every day to protect us and keep us safe. The mental pain of PTSD, anxiety, and depression have plagued their communities. Pushing it to the side or denying it exists is not a sound solution. Asking for help is one of the bravest things to do but the fear of stigma allows the code of silence to remain strong. The inspirational storytellers in this book are putting an end to the silence, sharing with the world that they’ve been through hell, struggled for a period, but have learned how to manage the metaphorical burns.
So…when life gives you lemons, squeeze, add sugar and pick up a copy of The i’Mpossible Project’s Lemonade Stand: Volume III.
