Life is a Box of Chocolates – Your Destiny

Life is full of twists and turns. One day, everything can be going great, but the next instant your life can take a turn for the worst. I think the best advice in life is to live your life to the fullest. If you want to do something big or new with your life, take the opportunity and do it before it’s too late.

Don’t live your life in regret. If you don’t like the way something is in your life, change it. Being able to change your life is one of the best gifts that can be offered because it helps us to live the life we aspire to. Follow your destiny and live the life you want to the fullest. We only have so many chances in life and so little time to be offered those chances a second time.

Life Is Like A Box Of Chocolates- Life Long Challenge

Some people seem to have their whole life planned out for them, but it’s not actually a “destiny” if its all layed out in front of you. Finding your destiny is a lifelong challenge. You get what you give, and the way your life turns out is completely in your control. You are the only person who gets a say in your destiny. You never know what you’re going to get when you set out on the journey called life, but you have the power to decide. Life can be tricky, and it’s up to us to solve the puzzle.

Forrest Gump – Go With the Flow

Destiny is a funny thing. Some find that you are to control it, and others simply believe that whatever will be, will be. Not to say that we shouldn’t strive to accomplish our own goals, but sometimes we need to just go with the flow. If we are too controlling, however, and we try to plan out our entire lives, when things don’t go our way we may become upset. When we live our lives to the fullest and take the risks we should, usually things will work out.

When something happens in our lives that we don’t like, such as the passing of a loved one, we may blame God. Although we are allowed to be upset, we should just know that God plans everything for a reason, and that we need to accept that there is nothing we can do to change certain things. If we just live our lives and try not to worry, we should feel content most of the time.

Life is Like a Box of Chocolates- Learning who you are

Many people believe destiny is predetermined and inevitable. They believe they are on a path and that whatever is meant to happen will happen. The choices they make are all part of some bigger plan that was already decided from the moment they were born.

I believe that destiny is a path we choose to take. I believe it is the combination of our choices and decisions and the eventual destination we will reach due to the events which took place in our lives. I think we have the power to write our own destiny and decide our own fate.

God has a special plan for all of us, but simply sitting back and going with the flow isn’t going to get us to where we need to be. We need to take the risks to find what we were meant to do. We have to live and learn and take those lessons and apply them in the future. You can’t just wait for everything to fall into your lap. You have to make it happen. That’s what destiny is in my eyes. It is going out and learning who you are.

Life is Like a Box of Chocolates-Choices

I think a huge part of life and destiny are the choices we make. They affect us forever and shape us into what we are going to be. I think we do make our own destiny, but that destiny isn’t always a good thing. If someone chose to commit crime, their destiny could be a life in prison. If someone chooses to give their all to something they love, they’ve made the devising to make that their destiny. I believe luck also plays a part in destiny, being at the right place at the right time could be all someone needs to have great things happen for them.
Life is all about choices, and they can make or break us. Hanging out with the right people and choosing to do the right thing can do a lot for someone. It all depends on what you do with your time. I believe that if someone wants something bad enough and works hard to get it, it will happen. This happens for people with real determination, but others just get lucky.

Life is Like a Box of Chocolates- Life Is What You Make Of It

You never can predict what comes next in life. There are so many twists and turns taking you to both amazing places and things you wish you could forget. But no matter where life takes you, one thing always stays the same: life is what YOU make of it. You can choose to be happy or sad or excited or nervous or scared.

We only live for so long, so why not make the best of the time we have? Rather than get upset when things don’t go our way, why not stay positive and see that it can only get better?

I try to live each moment to the fullest. Rather than sit around and waste away the time that I have, I do my best to find the joy in everything around me. We may not know what chocolate we’re picking from the box, but we might as well enjoy it!

Life is Like A Box of Chocolates- Finding our Destiny

Many people spend their lives worrying about what their destiny could be and what they should be doing to fulfill it. I think that we should spend less time worrying and more time just living our lives. I believe that what is meant to happen will happen one way or another. Making good decisions and doing whatever you feel is right is much more productive than worrying and I believe that is our destiny. Getting to live a life that we can truly be proud of and having no regrets is a valuable luxury. We never know what life is going to throw at us, but no matter what we need to make the best of it.

Life is like a box of chocolates – Destined to Be

Life is a gift to be treasured. Every breath we take in this world should be cherished in the recesses of our hearts forever however death is a part of life. Without it one cannot go about the circle of life.  When God calls us, our time in this world is up whether we are ready or not. While on this earth, we as individuals are obliged to live every day to its fullest. Religiously we are called to serve God in every way possible; Personally we are entitled to be happy and laugh at life’s pleasures; and finally through our entire being on this planet, we are to listen to our calling and live out that goal. People are called to be mothers, brothers, sisters, workers, priests, leaders, heros and many more. We can only become who we are meant to be through accepting not only God’s call, but through accepting ourselves and who we truly are as individuals.

“Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what your gonna get,” Forest Gump. This quote holds true because of the fact that life does not always entail smoothe sailing. There will always be a few hickups in the road no matter how careful you are.  Twenty, Forty maybe even fifty years from now everyone will look back on their life and decide if they truly made the best decisions they possibly could. If you are happy, successful and overall satisfied then you have fulfilled what life has entailed. Through the laughter and the tears, life is what you make it. I would rather not chose my own destiny because I feel that every moment in one’s life is a precious learning experience and if I already knew the outcome of my life, those great qualities would not have such an impact on my overall life. The sky is the limit, so live life to its fullest and have no regrets.

Life is Like a Box of Chocolates – The Hand We’re Dealt

Things change in our lives constantly. We are thrown into different situations all the time and we never know what hand we are going to be dealt. We can’t always control what is going to come our way but we can control how we handle it. There are so many choices we can take that will lead us down new paths. People need to understand that there will be events in our life that will sweep us off our feet and cause us to have to pick up the pieces. Probably the most important skill that we have to learn is the ability to bounce back in the face of disappointment, failure, or tragedy. You never know what your going to be handed in life. If it is negative, face it head on. If it happens to be positive, embrace it and use it to move you forward in the direction you want to go.

Life Is Like a Box of Chocolates – Putting the Pieces Together

There’s no way of determining what life will bring us or what direction it will send us. Some say that we have to take it into our hands and shape our lives. Others say that life is a game of luck and where it goes, it goes. But in my opinion, there has to be a happy medium somewhere. A place where your own changes in life and fate meet. It’s taking pieces of your life, good and bad, and putting them together in a way to figure out what life has brought you and to think about what it will bring you in the future.

Life is a puzzle. We start off from scratch with hundreds of ways to begin. Some beginnings reach failure quickly and require you to start over. But are you willing to start somewhere completely different? You learned which pieces didn’t go together and where they don’t belong, just like taking the experience of bad incidents that have occurred in your life and learning from them. Once we get ourselves into the rhythm of placing puzzle pieces together, we’ve determined the right course for our lives to take us. There will be some pieces that you want to fit in where they don’t belong. Their placing will come eventually. You must go along with fate and life and work hard to put all other pieces together and remember that fate will meet you when you’ve completed the puzzle. You have to be patient. Don’t expect the core pieces of the puzzle to be done first; it’s shaping the outer rims of it that give you a base to leap from. You never know exactly where pieces are going to fit in, but always remember that you will find their spots and the puzzle will be beautiful in the end.
