Chapter 6, Page 8, Book 18

Either you deal what is the reality or you can be sure that reality is going to deal with you.

Alex Haley

Keeping things real…

Don’t be afraid of the space between your dreams and reality.  If you can dream it, you can make it so.

Belva Davis

We may not like the life we are living, but the truth is we should take the time to appreciate it as this life is all that we have.  

Life isn’t always the party we dreamed of.  It’s not full of rainbows and butterflies. But it seems to me that in many ways life is what we make it.

There are things that aren’t under our control, but everything we think about and do everyday is what our lives are all about.  Our life lies in our hands and we are the ones responsible for what it’s going to be.

The real things haven’t changed.  It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and have courage when things go wrong.

Laura Ingalls Wilder

So true that life is what we make of it. We can choose to be grateful and thankful even in the tough times. Choose to try to laugh through the sad times, etc. There is always something good to be found in every aspect of our lives.

So true, "Life isn't always the party we dreamed of."
Maybe that's why Robert Fulghum's homespun advice so resonates: When you go out into the world watch for traffic, hold hands and stick together.
