I’m not sure who the first person was to coin this phrase, but for me it was best said in the movie Forest Gump.
Whether this phrase is true for us or not, depends mostly on what our beliefs and experiences have been in this life.
Although this may be the experience or truth many people are living to differing degrees, it always comes from a lack of awareness of what we have been emitting vibrationally through our long-held focused thoughts and emotions that the Law of Attraction has responded to with similar feeling manifestations.
So the more aware we are that we’re creating our lives through our thoughts and emotions, our vibration that the Law of Attraction is responding in-kind too, and the more aware we are of how we’re really feeling at any given moment in time is…..The more likely we are to know what may turn-up in our future experience.
Although how the Law of Attraction works is consistent and reliable across all circumstances and situations, even with very strong awareness of these Laws and how we’re feeling and therefore what we’re attracting, there are times when it may still be hard to predict how and when something will make an appearance.
What we’ve attracted through our vibration is delivered to us by the Universe in precise timing and from what is currently available from our surroundings, which may not always be something we’re expecting even though it is a vibrational match to us.
This is often when our faith or belief in our knowing of how life works can be put to the test, and how we deal with these unexpected “bumps in the road” can determine how we move forward.
I’m sure most of us have experienced a challenge that we’ve overcome in a positive way that’s propelled us forward to even greater places and experiences we may not have been able to achieve if not for the challenge in the first place, this is the “silver lining” that is present in all situations…..if we believe it’s there and we’re looking for it??? Whereas in contrast to this, a challenge not dealt with in a positive manner often remains as an area in our life that continues to move us in an unwanted direction, especially if it’s still thought about often with strong negative emotion. In these circumstances it’s important we take the time and effort to move forward positively or to let go of the emotional resistance we may still be holding onto in relation to whatever happened.
It doesn’t matter too much if we don’t make as much positive movement as we’re wanting when something presents itself to us at any given time, because everything that’s happening in our lives is an opportunity to move forward in a more positive direction, no matter how wanted or unwanted the circumstances are.
So let me re-phrase the title….
Life can be like a box of chocolates…..But if we’re starting to become aware of what’s been put in the box, we can usually predict what we’re going to get back out of it, and if we do get a surprise we don’t like, it’s not the end of the world when we know we can choose something differently next time!!
And so it is….
