Life is definitely what you make it. Regardless of what life throws at you, it is up to you to find a way to use it to your advantage. While we do not have control over everything in our lives, we can decide how we will approach each situation. If our approach is all negative then our end result will also be negative. When we look back at the greats such as Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandi, etc, we never hear of them speaking ill, they look for the good that could arise out of each negative situation. We therefore must arise from out of a negative mindset, we must chose to find a positive outlook. That is the only way to uplift, motivate and become empowered.
Rise up today and find your niche...find that ahah moment, have that self realization moment. Become that strong resilient being you know you are.
Have a victorious day!
