Life is like an

Ice Cream Sundae

(Yes, kind of in essence of Forrest Gump's "box of chocolates")

Starting with the ice cream, the definition and flavor of our existence. The ice cream is who we are, the foundation of our purpose in life. Since the majority of a Sundae consists of ice cream, it's pretty important that we truly love and respect ourselves as the overall taste, enjoyment and happiness of a Sundae is based on the taste of the ice cream.

On top of the ice cream is the chocolate syrup, our passion and soul. The syrup is everything, anything and everyone that we love. For some it's music, for others it's GOD, for many it's family, for most of us it's many things. Whether it's deep or light, like chocolate it always gives us a tingly fuzzy feeling inside. An Ice Cream Sundae is incomplete with out the chocolate syrup as our lives are with out love.

On top of the ice cream, on top of the chocolate syrup is the whip cream, our hopes and dreams. We all need a dream, but an ice cream Sundae can not be made of only whip cream. We need everything else to hold our dreams. Yet, an Ice Cream Sundae is incomplete with out the whip cream, hence our dreams:)

On top of the Ice Cream, on top of the chocolate syrup and on top of whip cream is the cherry on top, 'The one we love'. Yes, a cherry makes an Ice Cream Sundae seem complete. But a lot of us don't eat the cherry, because a lot of us don't need the cherry. The cherry is sweet, simple and natural but is also a very small part of the Sundae.

If you are single this Valentine's Day, than treat yourself to an Ice Cream Sundae and tell them to 'hold the cherry'. Because like life, an ice cream Sundae is so sweet, Delicious, enjoyable, tasty, treaty, yummy, wonderful, fulfilling, filling and so MMMMMMMMM mmmmmmmmmmmm MMMMMMMMMMMMM even with out the cherry on top! :)
