"Life Is Like A Box of Chocolates...


...You never know what you're gonna get."

That is a quote from one of my favorite movies, Forrest Gump. I can't tell you how many times I've seen the movie, but it brings tears to my eyes every time I watch it.

That's the beauty of life - isn't it? Not knowing what is going to happen from day to day, hour to hour, even minute to minute. One moment you're down in the dumps and the next moment your life does a 180 degree turn.

However, what I've learned that there is good in everything that happens in life. And sometimes life just sneaks up on you and you wake up realizing you are already living your dreams and that you are exactly where you're supposed to be right now!

The other day someone asked me what I did for a living and I told them, "I'm a writer and jewelry designer." Later I thought about it and realized - Oh my gosh, I am living my dream! Not even six months ago I was praying to be free from the confines of the corporate world and to be working for myself. Now I am doing things I love and living life as I had always intended. The funny thing is, it "just kinda happened". It's not how I pictured it happening, but nevertheless, it happened!

So, if you're caught in a situation that isn't how you think life should be....

1) focus on the positive
2) know that this is only temporary and that there's a lesson to be learned
3) know that what you are doing is going to help you in the future and
4) keep meditating on your dreams day and night!
