a forward email from work-

A CUP OF COFFEE --


A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to
visit their old University of Notre Dame lecturer. Conversation soon
turned into complaints about stress in work and life.

Offering his guests coffee, the lecturer went to the kitchen and
returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups ?
porcelain,
plastic, glass, some plain-looking and some expensive and exquisite,
telling them to help themselves to hot coffee.

When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the lecturer said:
"If you noticed, all the nice-looking, expensive cups were taken up,
leaving
behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is but normal for you to want
only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and
stress.

What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you
consciously
went for the better cups and are eyeing each other's cups."

"Now, if Life is coffee, then the jobs, money and position in society
are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain Life, but the
quality
of Life doesn't change."

"Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the
coffee in it."


ENJOY YOUR COFFEE, ENJOY LIFE!



LOVE!

Haha. Sometimes the best morals in life come from the simplest things.
[Like plastic cups, apparently]
