The Facts of Life – Quotes

‘Don’t just accept what life brings to you each day as your reality. Instead, decide what you want your life to look like and then go out and make that life a reality’ – unknown

Life is what we make it. Yes, of course, there are things we cannot change, but what we can do is make good choices and make sure we really are ‘the architect of our own life’. I hope you find some of the quotes below helpful or inspiring.
