Life is like a box of chocolate



I caught myself thinking about how amazing it would be if we were invaded by aliens. I know. It is not amazing. It is absurd (my husband reminded me of the absurdity of the idea). But then, the idea got me thinking... why would I think being invaded by aliens was something cool? I realized, it was due to my boredom. It was due to the desire of wanting to have something utterly amazing, or crazy, happen.

Truth is, I don't need to have my cute and overused planet invaded by aliens in order to shake up my life. What I really need is to take that little lesson that "life is like a box of chocolates"or that life is full of surprises.

I don't want to have to wait for something as absurd as being invaded by aliens to happen in order to appreciate the wonders of this world. I want to keep my eyes open and my mind clear and recognize the miracle of being alive... everyday.
