You are holding a cup of tea when someone comes along and bumps into you & makes your arm shake, making you spill your tea everywhere.
Why did you spill the tea?
"Because someone bumped into me!!!"
You spilled the cup of tea because there was tea in your cup.
Had there been coffee in the cup, you would have spilled coffee.
*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?
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.
Today be that person whose cup is full of goodness and inspiration.
Thank you, Georgie Hart, for this beautiful analogy.
