THE CUP AND WHAT FILLS IT
 
Introspection......
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?
"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.*
 
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?*
 
*Life* provides the cup, *YOU* choose how to fill it.
Today let's work towards *filling our cups* with *gratitude*, *forgiveness*, *joy*, *words of affirmation*; and *kindness*, *gentleness* and *love* for others.
