Life is like a cup of coffee!

Mentalt velbefindende er ikke afhængig af ydre statussymboler!

“The happiest people do not have the best of everything – they just make the best of everything.”

Og dertil en lille historie på engelsk om sammenligning af en kop kaffe og det liv, vi har:

A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to visit one of their old university professors.

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 and an assortment of cups – porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal and some plain looking, other expensive and exquisite. He told them to help themselves to the coffee.

When all of his former students had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor said “If you noticed, all 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 yourself, it is the source of your problems and stress”.

He continued “Be assured that the cup itself adds no quality to the coffee. In most cases, it is more expensive than the coffee itself and in other cases, hides what we drink. What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you subconsciously went for the best cups and then you began eyeing each other’s cups to see who had the best one”

He finished by saying “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. 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 nature has provided us. The happiest people do not have the best of everything – they just make the best of everything.
