Life is a roller coaster....

From the movie "Parenthood":
 [Gil has been complaining about his complicated life; Grandma wanders into the room]
Grandma: You know, when I was nineteen, Grandpa took me on a roller coaster.
Gil: Oh?
Grandma: Up, down, up, down. Oh, what a ride!
Gil: What a great story.
Grandma: I always wanted to go again. You know, it was just so interesting to me that a ride could make me so frightened, so scared, so sick, so excited, and so thrilled all together! Some didn't like it. They went on the merry-go-round. That just goes around. Nothing. I like the roller coaster. You get more out of it.
 


Life is a roller coaster in every way. We have ups and downs and twists and turns ~ 
emotion wise, experience wise, and people wise. Sometimes your stomach flip-flops, 
and you feel like your going to get sick. Other times, you enjoy the rush and the 
butterfly feeling. I guess that all depends on what you did before. 
If you ate something before the ride say, chances are you’ll feel sick, 
so you have to be mindful of your choices. 
The beauty of the roller coaster of life is,  the fact that once 
you board it, you have to ride it around and around. You might be scared, 
but conquering your fears is an experience in itself. And, you never know 
 the people you’ll end up sitting by. You never know the particular feeling 
of a certain day. 

Just keep in mind that while you're here, life can be a fun adventure.
