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.

Sometimes, actually most of the time, we are reluctant to give way to uncertainty. Makes sense right? The unknown is frightening, yet inevitable. No one knows what the future holds...no one really knows what's in store within the next hour. But its coming, whether we like it or not. So what do we do about it? Leap. Like the title of this post suggests, sometimes that all you can really do. Just leap, and hope you soar. Bu t don't be afraid to fall. We tend to think that if we fall, we fail. Trust me, I'm guilty of it too. No one wants to lose. But its in losing that we discover what it takes to be a winner. I'm graduating from college tomorrow. In one week, I'll be embarking on a voyage of uncertainty. I don't really know what to expect or what the experience will be like. But I'm taking a leap of faith- hoping that I'll soar, and praying that people will be there to catch me if I just so happen to fall.
