Chapter 6, Page 12, Book 16

 Life has it's bad times, 
Put them in your past.
Life is chance,
 Make sure to take it.
 But most importantly -
 Life is what you make it.

June 12th - Life is what you make it

If you don’t make the time to work on creating the life you want, you’re eventually going to be forced to spend a lot of time dealing with a life you don’t want.

The power to succeed or fail is yours alone. You alone have the responsibility to shape your life.  In life, things happen around us, things happen to us, but the only thing that truly matters is how you choose to react to it and what you make out of it. Life is all about leaning, adopting and converting all the struggles that we experience into something positive.

There are three kinds of people in this world: people who make it happen, people who watch what happens, and people who wonder what happened.

Tommy Lasorda

What you think, what you believe, how you react, and how you feel, is up to YOU. You decide how to live your life. Wh So why not make it a beautiful one full of happiness and joy.  It doesn’t matter where you live, whether you are rich or poor, have a lot or have a little.  Your life will be what you make it.

Life is what you make of it. You can make it easy on yourself or you can make it hard.

Deep Roy

Too often people blame the kind of life the have on their circumstances or the people in their lives.  Bad things can happen but we are only ones that get to choose how we will handle them.  Our attitudes toward just about anything is what makes a difference.

The value of life is not in the length of days, but in the use we make of them; a man may live long yet very little.

Michel de Montaigne.

So true that we have the control on how we deal with our lives. Not necessarily the circumstances but how we react to them. I'm learning lately to be patient and to trust God's timing and to be grateful for all that has been given me.

Yep, bad things do happen (many worse than others) but it is up to us and only us, how we handle them. Many times it is hard to accept that as fact, but as you have stated, it is fact.

Wonderful advice. tommy said it best, "There are three kinds of people in this world: people who make it happen, people who watch what happens, and people who wonder what happened."

The older I get the more I try to make it happen. I don't succeed all the time -- actually most of the time -- but I'm happy to try. Enjoyed your post!
