Life Is Like a Cup Of Coffee.

A Group Of Alumnis, Highly Established In Their Careers,
Got Together To Visit Their Old University Professor.

Their Conversation Soon Turned Into Complaints About
Stress In Work & Life.
Offering His Guests Coffee,The Professor Went To The Kitchen
And Returned With a Large Pot Of Coffee & An Assortment Of
Cups:Porcelain,Plastic,Glass,Crystal,Some Expensive,Some
Exquisite,Telling Them To Help Themselves To The Coffee.

When All The Students Had a Cup Of Coffee In Hand,
The Professor Said If You Noticed,All The Nice Cups
Have Been Taken Up,Leaving Behind The Plain &
Cheap Ones.

While It Is Normal For You To Want 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 Hide What We Drink.

What All The Students Really Wanted Was The Coffee Not The Cups,
But Consciously Went For The Best Cups & Then Began
Eyeing Each Other`s Cups.

Now Let's Consider This The Professor Said:
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 Only On The Cup,We Fail To  Enjoy The Coffee.

Savor The Coffee.

Not The Cups.

The Happiest People Don't Have The Best Of Everything,The Just Make The Best Of Everything.

Live Simply.

Love Generously.

Care Deeply.

Speak Kindly.

Peace Out, I'm Ghost.

    I don't drink coffee and I am seldom curious about what's inside another's cup because 9 out of 10 times it just ain't my thing or it doesn't gel with my ethos. I kind of march to my own drums with my own music.

    Nice read, thanks for sharing....its nice to stimulate the mind.

  4. Hmmmm. This spoke to me. I need to take a chill pill, abeg.
