THE HAPPIEST PEOPLE ARE NOT THOSE WHO HAVE THE BEST OF EVERYTHING, BUT THOSE WHO MAKE THE BEST OF EVERYTHING THEY HAVE!

“Life is a Cup of Coffee” – Author Unknown

A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old university professor.

Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life.

Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups.

Porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite.

He told his guests to help themselves to the coffee.

After everyone had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor said:

“If you noticed, all the nice looking, expensive cups have been taken up, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones.

While it is normal for you to want only the best for yourself, that is the source of your problems and stress.

Be assured that the cup adds no quality to the coffee.  In most cases, it is just more expensive, and in some cases even hides what we drink.

What all of you wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups…and then you began eyeing each other’s cups to see who had the best one.

Now consider this…

Life is the coffee; the jobs, money and position in society are the cups.

They are just tools to hold and contain Life.

The type of cup we have does not define, nor change the quality of life we live.

Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee.

Savor the coffee, not the cups!

LIVE SIMPLY

SPEAK KINDLY

CARE DEEPLY

LOVE GENEROUSLY
