APAD March # 5 - Life is.....

Life is like a box of chocolates......you never know what your gonna get. A quote made famous by Forrest Gump holds so true. Tomorrow is a new day and no one knows, exactly, what will happen next. Each box of chocolates is different, and there is no way of knowing what is in each chocolate until bitten into. Therefore, like a box of chocolates, life is a just mystery that we come to comprehend as we bite into each new day.

The book Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami, has the following: "Just remember, life is like a box of chocolates." ... "You know, they've got these chocolate assortments, and you like some but you don't like others? And you eat all the ones you don't like as much? I always think about that when something painful comes up. 'Now just polish these off, and everything'll be OK.' Life is a box of chocolates."

Run Forrest run and live your life like a box of chocolates.
