**-- HERE IS THE VIDEO TRANSCRIPT --** Life was like a box of chocolates ...ya never know what you're gonna get. Hi, I'm Steve Weber and here is the #1 scene from the movie Forrest Gump. This video series was created to celebrate the movies 25th anniversary on today, July 6, 2019. The series has a total of 94 scenes and 94 life lessons. I selected this scene as #1 because it's the best known and most memorable line. It's the signature scene from the movie. Life is like a box of chocolates ... ya never know what you're gonna get. In this opening scene, Forrest, for the first time, mentions the famous line his mother taught him. Life was like a box of chocolates ... ya never know what you're gonna get. Chocolates all look similar on the outside. What's inside of a chocolate is a mystery. It's uncertain. It's a surprise. We don't always get the flavor that we want. Life is mystery. Life is uncertain. Life gives us no guarantees. It's like a box of chocolates ... ya never know what you're gonna get. Here's the thing. We get to choose. We get to choose whatever chocolate we want. And we get to choose whatever life we want. We sometimes get surprised by our choices, but we still get to choose. It takes Gumption to be be responsible for your choices. That is my definition of gumption - taking responsibility for your thoughts, actions, and interactions with others. Do you want to be more gump-like? ... Choose. Chose wisely. And remember, life is like a box of chocolates - you get to choose the life you want. Let's learn to live our lives with Gumption.
