make the most of something
make the most of (something)
To deal with and create the best possible outcome of a bad, unfortunate, or unpleasant situation or set of circumstances. I know this data entry job isn't what you wanted for a career, but for the time being try and make the most of it. We weren't expecting to have to share our timeshare with others, but there's nothing we can do about it now, so we'd better make the most of our vacation.
