“Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” Or so the famous quotations by Forest Gump goes. But as far as I know, if I buy a box of Chocolate Turtles, I know what I’m going to get. I’m going to get a box of Chocolate Turtles. And I know what they’re made of. It says so right there on the wrapping.
Life is more like a game of chess. You have rules to follow, boundaries that you stay within and every move you make has its consequences. It is up to you to choose which move you want to make. The move that you decide to make should be well thought out to reduce the amount of risk involved so that the outcome is beneficial to you.
I have a poster in my room that has a quote on it. Everyday, before I leave my room, I see this poster. I believe the quote is by Mother Teresa but it’s been cut down to three lines.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is an opportunity, capture it.
I believe that the meaning of life is for one to experience. Throughout your whole life, you’ll probably be overwhelmed with the countless numbers of emotions. Happiness. Sadness. Excitement. Disappointment. Love. Heart breaks. Accomplishments. Failure. And that’s just to name a few. How are you able to experience any of this if you were not alive? I highly doubt that you can. So live your life to the fullest with no regrets. Keep happy and keep smiling!
