  1. Default is what we make it 
    Henry L. Yu, M.D.

    'LIFE is what we make it.” Remember this quotation, which we used to write in the autographs during our younger days?

    We got this from Prose and Poetry book, as part of our English class. Along with this quotation were the many things we learned (fractions, numerators, denominators, and so on). We all went through the rigors of all those equations in Algebra, the hypothesis in Geometry, and so on before we finally marched on stage to get that high school diploma.

    Then on we went to college, and our entrance to the professional world thereafter.

    God gave us life through our biological parents. What we do with that life is up to us. We are given a choice. We reap what we sow.

    Things happen because we made them happen, as when we failed in a subject because we didn’t study well, or when we fell down from a tree because we were stubborn and hardheaded. We did not to listen to our parents’ warning not to climb the guava tree.

    In a world of instant things (like instant coffee, and orange juice), life is never an instant thing, however. We have to work hard in order to achieve our goals.

    Working hard and hardly working are definitely two different things. Life is indeed full of choices where we can freely choose from among the many alternatives. Choosing is an act. But choosing right is a decision.

    In like manner, love is not just a feeling; it is a decision. It’s either we make it or break it. We made it because we were working hard. We broke it because we were hardly working.

    No “if’s” nor “but’s,” just go straight ahead. As Desiderata would put it: “Keep peace with your soul. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.”

    I believed that we make our own destiny. Our status in life does is not the scale of happiness.
