This series is dedicated to listing the many life lessons from the movie that we can incorporate into our daily lives to feel more peace and love … and to live our lives with Gumption.
“Life is like a box of chocolates … you never know what you?re gonna get.”
We get to choose. We are free to pick which ever chocolate we want. It’s our choice.
But there are no guarantees. What’s inside is a mystery. It’s a surprise. There is uncertainty up until we take the first bite.
That’s how it works when you make a selection from the chocolate box.
That’s the way it works when you start living your life … instead of having others choose for you.
You get to choose. No one else gets to decide how you’re gonna live your life.
But the final result of your choice is unknown. Uncertain.
Choosing involves risk. There is no guarantee.
Life is like a box of chocolates … you don’t know what you’re gonna get.
Mama Gump taught Forrest not to fear the uncertainty of life. She taught him not to fear choosing.
Just do it. Live your life with Gumption.
