Imagine you are holding a cup of coffee and then someone bumps into you and you spill your coffee everywhere. Why did you spill the coffee? "Because someone bumped into me!" 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. So, when life comes along and shakes you (which WILL happen), whatever is inside you will come out. We have to ask ourselves “what's in my cup?" When life gets tough, what spills over? Joy, gratefulness, peace and humility? Anger, bitterness, harsh words and reactions?" Life provides the cup, you choose what's in it. Today let's work towards filling our cups with gratitude, forgiveness, joy, words of affirmation and kindness, gentleness and love for others.
