        Life is like a cup of coffee

        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 - 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 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 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... And 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 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. They just make the best of everything. Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

        Loved this story!

        As I began reading, I was thinking I would take the cheap cup (if I drank coffee).  Not for the reason you stated, more like not taking the last piece of pizza.

        Love this story and it couldn't be more true.

        Keeping up with the Jones' does nothing but create stress, spending you wouldn't otherwise and for what?  Nothing in the long run.

        Oh wow gabby i thought the same exact thing. I would not take the best cup and especially not if i was the first one to select one.

        I dunno why i wouldn't, maybe it is the whole idea as you said not taking the "last piece of pizza". I am actually relieved to hear that someone else wouldn't take the best cup either. I was beginning to think i was a little goofy!

        I asked a friend of mine today which cup she would of chosen and she said the "biggest cup" because it is her preference when drinking coffee. I told her i betcha i would pick the worst cup in the pile and she couldn't understand why!

        What a story and theory based on the great wisdom of the professor...
        reminded me of how we sometimes search so hard for happiness without realizing whatever values we so eager to accomplish, achieve can be right next to us..

        I'm so glad you thought the same thing.

        As I typed it, I stopped and thought, hmmm.... will it come across as if I'm better than the norm somehow which is not at all what I meant!!
