The feather that floats out of the sky and lands at the foot of Forrest Gump represents the opportunities that come into one’s life.
Once the feather (opportunity) appears, it’s up to the individual to pick it up and do something with it.
The feather also represent the randomness of life. And the fact that we (as individuals) only have control over our own thoughts, actions, and interactions with others.

It’s all about choosing. You get to decide. Experience and analytical thinking can help us make better choices, but no choice is fail-safe. Like is like a box of chocolates … ya never know what you’re gonna get. Taking responsibility for your choices is the key. You’ll benefit when you get what you want, and you’ll learn and overcome obstacles when your choice doesn’t materialize as first imagined.
The Shoes (Forrest’s Nike Sneakers)
Life is a journey. Life consists of many, many singular chapters. Each chapter leads to new opportunities. Living in the moment enables one to experience peace and happiness … and prepare us for when the next feather floats into our lives and propels us to the next life chapter. It’s a choice.
