{Life is…}

“Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is bliss, taste it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.”

These words really do say it all.  Life is precious & fleeting.  There are no guarantees as to what your next breath may hold.  So many times we…and by we I am including myself…get caught up worrying about the little things, get angry over something that really isn’t worth getting angry over, and forget to smile.  And I am so guilty of this!

Life is a challenge…a day by day, minute by minute challenge.  But how much better would life be if we stopped looking at the glass half-empty?  If we just stood up and faced the day to day challenges head-on instead of standing there complaining, I think we would start to see life in a totally new perspective!

There will always be challenges in our lives, it is up to us to decide how we will handle them!
