Life is not like a box of chocolates.

Life is much more like a bowl of oatmeal.

It?s thick, sticky, not very yummy, and is in desperate needs of more sugar.

Yes, life IS oatmeal.

It works against progress; it works against your purpose. It works against your passion, and even works against your waistline.

Culture says, ?just admit defeat, and let it carry you where it wants, you don?t have any ability to stop it, just accept it, and try to enjoy it, live for the weekend.?

Just like oatmeal life is also good for you, the sticky, think, bland taste of it makes you stronger, it makes the victories sweeter, and the accomplishments more significant.

Don?t give up, stop complaining and eat your oatmeal.
