In my short seventeen years of living on this wonderful planet, I have embraced many situations and encountered numerous people who have made me who I am today. I commonly refer to myself as a salad, because I am a mixture of many different qualities, experiences, and aspects that make me, me. Coincidentally, my favorite food is Caesar salad so I consider myself a Caesar salad. I have three laws of life I live by, and I compare these to the three main parts of me, a Caesar salad. The three basic parts to a Caesar salad are the lettuce, the dressing, and the parmesan cheese.
The first part is the main aspect of any salad, the lettuce. My life that is my “lettuce” is, your life is what YOU make of it. This is so true, because we can’t help the families we’re into or the places we live as children, but as humans we have the power to make the best out of any situation we are put in. If a person is pessimistic about everything in their lives, they won’t be happy with his/herself and therefore his/her life won’t be enjoyable. My goal each day is to make the best of whatever situation I am put in that day, whether its work, school, or athletics, and it truly does work.
The second aspect of my salad is the dressing. My law of life for my dressing is, live to the fullest each and every day, because we’re not guaranteed tomorrow. This law is especially important to me, because in my life I have been forced to realize the reality that life is so precious and can be taken away in an instant. Personally, I have realized that in our society we live like we’re guaranteed to live until we’re one hundred, and that’s sadly not the truth. I feel as humans we should try and accomplish as much as we can each day, not putting things off, because we don’t know if we’ll honestly ever get to do them.
My final aspect of my salad is the parmesan cheese. My last law of life is, God will never put you in a situation you can’t handle. God is my rock, and I look to...
