Oh, Mr. Gump and Your Box of Chocolates

Forrest Gump had a lot of "life is like" comments. This all seemed very sweet...For example, "life is like a box of chocolates".
Then he adds...
"you never know what you are going to get".

Yes, Forrest "you never know what you are going to get".

Some are sneaky. They look like they are going to have caramel on the inside, but have coconut. I do NOT like coconut!

Some have weird pink stuff that you don't know is there until you take a bite. I do NOT like weird pink stuff!

There are some that are more obvious with nuts. You can see the nuts and you expect the nuts. I like that kind of predictability.

Sometimes the box has a "map". It shows you what you will find in each "coordinate" of the box. I like this....unless you get the map wrong or lose the map.

Life can be sweet. Life can be ooey, gooey, yummy and full of the "good stuff". However, life can be messy, unpredictable and full of pieces we do not like. That is just life and you don't know what you are going to get.

You can choose however, how you deal with the pieces.

Get the pink stuff...You have a choice. You can spit it out and trash it. Or you can share it with someone who does like it.

Melty ones? You can like your fingers and enjoy every last bit of it or you can wash your hands of it all.

How will you deal with your box of chocolates?
