Croatian term or phrase: karakterizacija trenutaka
Could anyone help with a suggestion of how to translate karakterizacija trenutaka to English?

The literal meaning is characterisation of moments, but I am stuck on how to phrase it in the philosophical sense/context of "life is about a characterization of moments".

Just stating "Life is what you make it" seems too cheap/simplistic and doesn't convey the meaning fully.
