To quote Forest Gump, life is like a box of chocolates. Good or bad every experience is a learning experience. When I get a box of candy I always look for the cheat sheet to tell me what each piece is so that I can eat my favorites first. My best friend always tells me to just take one piece of candy and try to enjoy it for what it is. Life is like that as well. Sometimes it would be easier just to do what you like, but in most cases some of the best experiences have been something you never would have chosen. Who knew that a box of chocolate could be so smart. Now if only I was as smart as that box of chocolates.
