I am in love.

With a string of words.

Life’s what you make it.

So beautiful.

So true.

Putting the responsibility for my life right where it belongs.

With me.

I get to choose what I do.

I get to choose how I deal with the things that happen to me.

I get to choose what potential I see.

I get to choose which opportunities I take.

I get to choose what my boundaries are.

I get to choose what I say.  And how I say it.

I don’t get to choose what someone says. But I do get to choose how I respond.

I don’t get to choose what life throws at me. But I do get to choose how I deal with it.

I don’t get to choose what the results of my efforts will be. But I do get to choose whether I give it my all.

I don’t get to choose what other people think about me. But I do get to choose who I listen to.

I don’t get to choose the people I run into. But I do get to choose who I hang out with.

I don’t get to choose what people will take. But I do get to choose what I give.

Life’s what you make it.

What are you choosing to make it?
