The coffee story


Something true which we do not realise.

"The happiest people in the world are not those who have no
problems, but those who learn to live with things that are less than

* A group of graduates, highly established in their careers, got
together to visit their old university professor.
* Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and
* Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to the kitchen and
returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups
plastic, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some
exquisite- telling them to help themselves to the coffee.
* When all the students had a cup of coffee, the professor said: "If
you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken up,
leaving behind the simple and cheap ones.
* While it is normal for you to want only the best for yourselves,
that is the source of your problems and stress.
* Be assured that the cup itself 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 really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you
consciously went for the best cups... Then you began eyeing each
other's cups.
* 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, and the type of
cup we have does not define, nor change the quality of Life we live.
- Sometimes, by concentrating on the cup, we fail to enjoy the
coffee God has provided us. Enjoy your coffee!."

* The happiest people don't have the best of everything.
* They just make the best of everything."

1. Live simply.
2. Love generously.
3. Care deeply.
4. Speak kindly.
5. Leave the rest to God.

You are the miracle, my friend;
Your life either shines a light OR casts a shadow!
Shine a light & Enjoy the Coffee !!!
