Life is funny. Unlike Forest , I would not compare it to a box of chocolates. Although you really do not know what you will get (without the guide printed on the top), life is not so sweet. I love chocolate. What woman doesn't?
Life however... life is more like chasing the rainbow. When you focus on that rainbow, life is wonderful. But you can never quite reach it. Around you, the rain is pouring, the wind is blowing, the ground is muddy and slippery, and the sun keeps disappearing behind another dark cloud. Focus on these things too much and you suddenly wonder why you should even try?
Life best lived is hung in the balance between these two. Focus on the rainbow, and the glorious glimpses of sunlight that create the brilliant colors, and you can do almost anything. But keep an eye on your surroundings as well. In it you will find obstacles to avoid, paths to get you through, and friends who have gotten lost along the way. Gather together, work with each other, and someday ... just someday ... you will find you have actually reached the end of the rainbow. And you have brought company along to enjoy it with.
