You Only Live Once, Live a Good Life!
As we are anxious about life’s uncertainty nowadays, it is good to pause for a while and meditate on our self. This would help us enlighten our sense of purpose in life. Whatever you are into right now I hope this article helps you choose optimism above all.
Come think of this scenario, you’re holding a cup of coffee or a glass of water when somebody bumps into you or your kid is running around and shakes your arms because he is excited to show you something, making you spill your coffee/water everywhere.
Now, “Why the coffee/water spilled?”. “Because someone bumped into me or my kid grabbed my arms!!”
No. The coffee/water spilled because there was coffee/water in your cup and if had there been tea in the cup, you would have also spilled tea. Whatever is inside the cup, is what will spill out.
When life comes along and shakes you which will definitely happen, whatever is inside you spills. It’s easy not to show it until you lost composure.
Let’s ask ourselves, what is in my cup?
When life gets tough, what will spill?
Gratitude, Inner Peace, Humility, Compassion?
Regrets, Bitterness, Harsh words, Hatred?
Life provides the cup, YOU choose how to fill it.
Every day we are given a chance to fill our cups with fortitude, joy, gratefulness, words of affirmation, kindness, and love for ourselves and others. A little goes a long way.
