Life is What You Make It.

Extract from “The Sensory Garden.”

“You get out of life what you put in,” They always told her, “You have to work hard to get ahead.”

            This was what Helen was always told and it was what she believed. But hadn’t she been working hard to get ahead? Hadn’t she done everything that was asked of her and more? Then why wasn’t she getting out of life what she put in? It didn’t make any sense to her at all.”
