Life Is…

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.

Life is beauty, admire it.

Life is a dream, realize it.

Life is a challenge, meet it.

Life is a duty, complete it.

Life is a game, play it.

Life is a promise, fulfill it.

Life is sorrow, overcome it.

Life is a song, sing it.

Life is a struggle, accept it.

Life is a tragedy, confront it.

Life is an adventure, dare it.

Life is luck, make it.

Life is too precious, do not destroy it.

Life is life, fight for it. (emphasis added by Christa)

This poem was written by a woman I greatly respect and admire, Mother Teresa.


  1. One of my clients actually worked with Mother Theresa. I remember when I was losing Kody and I went to this client and told her about my sorrow. She looked at me and simply said, ‘Oh Michelle, everything is going to be alright’. I thought to myself..what?!? That’s it?!?. But in fact, in time simply, everything was alright!
