Now, my morning coffee is a daily call to action. Have you ever noticed that some of us go through life, seemingly, unscathed regardless of what is happening around us? I came across this wonderful passage that reminded me that we have a choice to make, every, single day.
‘You are holding a cup of coffee when someone comes along and bumps into 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 there was _coffee_ in your cup.⠀ Had there been tea, you would have spilled _tea_.
*Whatever is inside, 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… “what’s in my cup?”⠀When life gets tough, what spills over? Joy, gratefulness, peace and humility?⠀Or anger, bitterness, harsh words and reactions? You choose!
Today, let’s work towards filling our cups with gratitude, forgiveness, joy, words of affirmation; and kindness, gentleness and love for others.’

I hope that you too will find the wisdom within these words and will choose to fill your cup with that which lights your soul on fire.
