Yes making life or destroying it is entirely in our hands and we could do good or bad to it.Most of the times we tend to forget that life is beautiful we should just enjoy it live happily and let others live happily.

yes, you can have a happy and contented life if you choose to see life that way. it can also be miserable if you would rather have it lived miserably. it is really our decision which primarily matters. we can see around us people who have less in life who lead happy lives whereas, there are some affluent ones who cannot exude happiness at all by the way that they lead and live their lives. life is a matter of outlook and attitude. as for those who die as babies, the innocent ones have no decisions to take at all. they are spared from this responsibility of choosing how to run their lives.

this old saying which goes 'life is what we make it' cannot apply to the innocent and the ones with abnormalities like demented minds. we say that life is what we make it because, we are the ones who wield our future by the things that we do and by the decisions that we make now. if we work hard today, in preparation for the future by keeping much of the earnings in our savings, then that counts for one. if we decide to marry somebody to have a full life with him/her for the rest of our lives, there goes another count. if we decide to have only two cildren and stick to it, it is also one count. these therefore, are the monumentous decisions which we make which will hold a big mark as to how our lives in the future will be like. i hope that i have ably shown you what the saying is really driving at.
