Life is like a box of chocolates….

Forest Gump

I am sure we are all familiar with the film Forrest Gump staring Tom Hanks. (If you are not, then you can read about it here and its a film I recommend everyone watches at least once in their life time http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0109830/ ) or watch the trailor….

The film is famous for one quote in particular:

“My momma always said life was like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get.” Forrest Gump

I love this quote and think this is how life should be lived.  Making a decision on which chocolate you want next – you may not always enjoy it, but you can always move onto another! Life is the same we make decisions every day.  Sometimes these decisions can turn out to be a bad choice but you can change it.  Life is what you make it, and it is not always necessary to have the menu  in front of you.  Sometimes it is OK for you to throw that chocolate menu in the bin, throw caution to the wind and just pick one of the chocolates out of the box by chance.  You never know you may just like what you choose!

Just like life, it is not always necessary to know where you are going in life, you just need to take the first step!

So go on I dare you…..throw away those instructions and see where life takes you….or you could start with the box of chocolates 🙂

Do not listen to these guys (they do not look very happy)…..B

Nelson Mandela

Thursday 5th December 2013, RIP to a peace warrior, an inspiration to many. When I heard the breaking news last night I felt genuine sadness within my heart. Even my 14 year old son telephoned me in shock, genuinely saddened by his passing. This goes to show what an impact this man had on people of all ages. Some say in his passing a light has gone out but I believe he has returned home and from there his light will shine brighter. Rest in Peace Nelson Mandela. You will not be forgotten.
