Life Is What You Make It Mane

"Life is crazy. Life sucks."

 We've all either said these or heard them said, but what if I told you that you could totally turn your life around simply by changing your perspective.  



          See that guy in the photo? One might look at it and say it's just a homeless man. That would be correct, but did you notice he's smiling? No I didn't tell him to say cheese. He's the richest man I know. I know. I just said he's rich. Let me tell you why  

            I've ran into this man several times downtown and he's always been extremely nice and funny. He tells me a life story and keeps it moving. He's always kind and speaks to just about anyone. 

            In our society, he's an outcast and we avoid outcasts like the plague. In spite of, he's still happy about life. Why? Because life isn't as hard and terrible as you think it is. That's why I call him rich  he's rich with life! 

           It's like the saying, "When life gives you a lemon, make lemonade." That's a very true statement. You can't let the what happens in life destroy your entire existence. Make the most of bad situations and use it to motivate you to avoid that situation later in life. Don't have a job? Look at it as an opportunity to find the job of your dreams or go to school. Its all in how you look at things. I hear everyday how terrible Memphis is, but I don't subscribe to that negativity. I see it as an opportunity to make my city amazing! I have to leave this city and world better than when I came. So change those thoughts!! 

             You got this mane! You can do it! You can make it! Life is not defined by one moment. It's a collection of moments put together. Hard times don't last always and the same applies to good times. Change your perspective and you'll change your life!!  

Life is for Living,
