Amazing Analogy

Thank you so much to my amazing cousin Jonell for this:

This made me think of you

I love this analogy!!! ❀️ from a friend β˜•οΈ:

You are holding a cup of coffee when someone comes along and bumps into you πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈor shakes your arm, making you spill your coffee everywhere.

Why did you spill the coffee? πŸ€”

“Well because someone bumped into me, of course!”πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

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… β€œwhat’s in my cup?”

When life gets tough, what spills over?

Joy, gratefulness, peace and humility?πŸ’“

Or anger, bitterness, harsh words and reactions? πŸ’£

You choose! πŸ’―

Today let’s work towards filling our cups with gratitude, forgiveness, joy, words of affirmation; and kindness, gentleness and love for others.πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™Œ

Happy New Year!
