Life Is What You Make It

woman-1031535_960_720Life has a funny way of making you believe you are unworthy—worthless—useless—unloved—unwanted—and unwelcome.  It can make you feel as if it’s you against the world and only the lucky ones are worthy of its secrets.  But life rewards the courageous—the bold—and persistent.  It rewards the caretakers and gift givers—and those who listen with their entire self.

It’s the hands of an ever ticking clock—unable to be stopped or wound back.  It’s the mistakes you’ve made—the goals you set—the obstacles you fight through.  It’s the tears you’ve cried—the depression you’re battling—the stress on your back and shoulders–the love you’ve found.  It’s the emotional turmoil—the daily struggle—the constant hustle of day-to-day living.

It’s many things—but mostly one: It’s what you make it.
