Life Is What We Make It

There will always be certain factors that are out of our control. Life will lead us down bumpy paths and winding roads. At times, we will fall.... and we will fall hard. There is no escaping the inevitable. Though we can prevent many falls before they happen, other times, we must handle life from the bottom of the hill.

So how do we deal the hand that we are dealt, when it seems that all of the chips are stacked against us.....and we are stuck with one heck of a losing hand? Like soldiers! I guess more importantly, like adults. We must realize that the journey of life is a mindset. LIFE IS WHAT WE MAKE OF IT. We can either sit in a pool of self pity, or we can take life on the chin. We must face our challenges with a the grin of an 80's action hero just before they deliver the final blow to the bad guy. We must pick ourselves up, wipe the sweat from our brows, the tears from our eyes, and the blood from our knees.....and we must push forward through the dark of night until the morning sunset shines anew.

Life is all what we make it. Life can be a series of learning experiences from which we grow and blossom, or it can be a bunch of hard blows to the nose that leave us standing in the same place for decades to come. Life is all in the attitude. It can be a bunch of "I can's" and "I will's" or it can be a bunch of "I cant's" and "I wont's". We can smile or we can frown. We can laugh or we can cry. It's give or take. Love or hate. Gain or lose. Live .......or, well, you get the point. Life really is what you make it.

You are what you choose to be people. We've all heard the excuses, and nobody's buying. The world is full of liars, excuse makers, and con-artists. Start taking accountablity for things and life will turn around in a hurry. That doesn't mean just means quickly. Life is all what we make it. So next time you are faced with a choice..... choose wisely, beacuse it will affect you. Take care everyone!

See you next time!!!
