Life is like a box of chocolate…

I love this quote from one of my favorite movies, Forrest Gump, “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get.” In a box of chocolates, you have your favorites, then you have the ones you hope someone else picks. Life is like that where you have the moments you wish would last forever, and the moments you wish would go away.

You need to learn to live life without major expectations. I’m on holidays right now, and I left on my trip with no major expectations. When you have 2 young children, you can’t afford to live by a strict schedule. Only a few minutes after arriving at the airport, we had an unexpected turn in events. We decided to just go with the flow. Even when a few hiccups happen, when you simply let the events unfold without complaint, things will turn out for the good.

Also, remember to take some time to spend with your family. As nice as it is to spend time alone, it is also nice to spend time with the ones you love.

Learn to go with the flow, and take each event in stride, then you will live an enjoyable life.
