“Quality coffee that is tasted from a worn tin ladle is just as exquisite as that which
is served from a golden cup.” ~Tammy Bennett
I looked up the word Abundance today. According to Mirriam-Webster it means:
1: an ample quantity
Are you at a place where you can say that you are living in Abundance? I read a
story some time back, that summarized abundance. It is the message that I am
trying to live during the September NO Spend month.
The story, by an author unknown, goes like this:
"A group of alumni, highly established in their careers got together to visit their
old university professor. The 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, and
some exquisite-telling them to help themselves to the coffee.
After all of the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor said: "If you
noticed, all of the nice looking expensive cups were 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's 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 began eyeing each other 's cups."
"Now consider this: Life is the coffee. The jobs, houses, cars, things, money and
position in society are the cups. They are just used 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 God has provided us." ~Author Unknown
Enjoy your coffee (life)~
