"Life Is What You Make It"

The late Steve Jobs had a great sense of what life consists of in this video regarding the Secrets of Life. An individual can change their life for the better, influence others for good, and make a difference in the world around them ..... literally, "life is what you make it."

From Yahoo Answers, the best answer as to what the above phrase means, was provided by an ECE teacher, a mother of 3, and a grandmother of a whole bunch:

"I think this is a great quote. It means that you have a lot of control over your life. If you don't like your life, do something to change it. Don't like your job? Start looking for a new one. Don't like the area you live in? Start looking at other areas to live. Don't like your relationship/marriage? Think of things YOU can do to change it. (I read once that when we're unhappy in a relationship, we should first think how we can change ourselves instead of looking to fix the other person.)  We can't always change the events/circumstances of our lives, but we can always change the way we react to them. Keep a positive attitude, and everything will look better to you. So put on a smile, look for the positives in everything, and you will make your life and your world a better place to be."

Beloved, as the above teacher, mother, and grandmother suggests, let's put on a smile, look for the positives in everything, making our lives and our world a better place to be.
