Imagine you are holding a cup of coffee when someone comes along and bumps into you, making you spill your coffee everywhere. ♀️ Why did you spill the coffee? "Well because someone bumped into me, of course!" Wrong.
The coffee spilled out because there was coffee in your cup. Had there been tea in the cup, you would have spilled tea. --Whatever is inside your cup, is what will spill out.-- Therefore, when life comes along and shakes you up or knocks you down, 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 really tough, what spills over?
Is it joy, gratefulness, peace and humility? Or anger, bitterness, harsh words and reactions?
I have always believed what you put out into the world will come back to you. I know we all have bad days but it doesn't mean you have a bad life.
Today let us all (me DEFINITELY included) work towards filling our cups with gratitude, forgiveness, joy, words of affirmation and kindness, gentleness and love for others.
