You must have heard people telling all kinds of wise things about life and how we should appreciate it because it is a gift. The only thing that I try to remember is that ‘life is what you make of it’. You can be rich or poor, but money is not the key factor to make your life the way you want it to be. You should never stop trying until you have a life just the way you dreamt it. There are 8 women who have understood that better than anyone and they now live a life that they always wanted to no matter what people think.
