Why did you spill the coffee?

By Joan van den lngenberg

“You are holding a cup of coffee when someone comes along and bumps into you or shakes your arm, making you spill your coffee everywhere.

But, why did you spill the coffee? 

“Well because someone bumped into me, of course!”

Wrong answer.

You spilled the coffee because there was _coffee_ in your cup!!!

Had there been tea  in the cup, you would have spilled _tea_.

*Whatever is inside the cup, is what will spill out.*

Therefore, when life comes along and shakes you (which WILL happen), whatever is inside you will come out. It’s easy to fake it, until you get rattled.
*So we have to ask ourselves… “what’s in my cup?”

When life gets tough, what spills over?

Joy, gratefulness, peace and humility?

Or anger, bitterness, harsh words and reactions?

Frustration? Or positivity. Discouragement? Or fight till you win it. 

You choose! 

Today let’s work towards filling our cups with gratitude, forgiveness, joy, positivity and determination and words of affirmation; kindness and love for yourself and others.
