Life is like a mixed bag of M&Ms and pebbles. Days are like draws from the bag. Sometimes you draw an M&M. That's when you have a great day. Everyone is nice to you. Everything works out. Its just does, even if you hadn't quite figured it out to be that way.
And then there are times when you pick a pebble instead and thats when you have a bad day. I could say that how each day works out is like a flip of a coin, but that is not really the case. Because, for every good day there is a bad day too that you will have to live through. But, there is always that lingering hope that maybe 'my bag has more chocolates than pebbles'. You wish you pick out all the M&Ms first and die before you start with the pebbles.
Maybe that is why, people have their lucky charms, their someone special. They think that they are having a good day because of their lucky charm when actually, a special someone can turn even a bad day into a good one and if that someone goes away, the best of days feel like the worst.
Then there is the creed of people known as the optimists. Reminds me of Tom Hanks' character in Forrest Gump when he says, "Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you'll get." So what if its bitter, its a chocolate after all!
