Momma always said life was like a box of chocolates
I disagree with Forrest Gump (actually I think it was his "momma" that said it). Life is NOT like a box of chocolates- at least not for the reason she said. First of all, you DO know what you're gonna get. It should say so on the back of the box. If it doesn't, maybe you're eating the wrong type of chocolate. And second, boxes of chocolate are not unique. They are mass produced. Life is precious and each individual is special.
But I guess in some ways, the lady has a point. A box of chocolates has some bitter pieces...some sweet...and some with fruit filling. But most importantly, like a box of chocolates, life is a gift. And its definitely up to us to decide whether we'll eat it or through it away.
