Life is what you make it
I have been thinking about this common saying lately, that life is what you make it. This saying which is so simple, and we may hear stated so often, yet deeply wise. I even wonder if this is the deepest of spiritual truths?
Life, meaning our reality and the world and universe around us, is what we make it out to be. Notice how it is up to us to decide. It is how you make it. Not anybody else. Not your friends or your parents or your schools or your society or anybody else. Your life is what you make it as. In other words, the decision is up to you. With that decision is such power, such freedom, such responsibility. You have the power to be the creator of your reality. Or, you can give that power away! It’s still up to you.
Too often in my own life I let others determine how my life was being made. I worried about what others would think, or I viewed myself with a low opinion. But I didn’t realize that it was my own thoughts which were determining how my life was going.
I turned my life around by turning my thoughts around. By choosing thoughts that I felt good about. Because I realized one thing – that life is what you make it, and I was determined to make something good out of it.
So, what are you making life out to be, in this present moment? That is the question to ask, in each and every moment. What life are you making?
