{ life is what you make of it }

life is what you make of it.

...spoken by jimmy, my professor at SVA tonight (and a few others I'm sure).

Class started with our normal review of everyones work, then diverted into quite the discussion.
People are losing their jobs and struggling to make ends meet and it isn't easy to watch but it's not 
such a bad thing that people are finally shifting their focus onto more important things. We really have 
had it so good for so long and I'm thankful to have the opportunity to take a step back and reevaluate things. 
We think we need stuff to make us happy but stuff will never make us as happy as the things that truly matter. 

Life is truly what you make of it. You can choose to wake up and feel sorry for your self and the situation you are in or you can wake up and decide you're going to do the best with what you've got. It's okay to have bad days. How else would we be able to experience such great joy if we never had sorrow but when your bad day is over, get over it and wake up the next day and decide that things are going to get better.

we're all so truly is what you make of it.
