Making 2018 Better than Before: Getting What You Give


16 Tevet, 5778

I came across a simple line of thought that presents our human frailty and magnificent potential in only a few words.

Please ponder the meaning of 

You are holding a cup of coffee when someone comes along and shoves you or shakes your arm, making you spill your coffee everywhere. Why did you spill the coffee?

"Well because someone bumped into me, of course!"

Wrong answer.

You spilled the coffee because coffee was in the cup.

If tea had been in it, you would have spilled tea.

Whatever is inside the cup is what will come out.

Therefore, when life comes along and shakes you (which will happen),
whatever is inside of 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 actions?

*You choose!*

Today let's work towards filling our cups with gratitude, forgiveness, joy, words of affirmation to yourself and others, kindness, gentleness, and love...

Fill your cup and your mind with soothing ideas and helpful information.
