Just a cup of coffee...



There was once a gathering of an Alumni organised by a retired Professor at his home. Upon the meeting of all the attendees the professor saw and heard how these young ex-students of his were complaining about how tough life and career was. Even though there were lines of luxury cars out in the parking lot obviously belonging to all of them, he heard them saying that their pay was too low and how things are expensive these days, and so on and on.... He then ask all of them.."Do you all want a cup of coffee?". And not surprisingly all of them acknowledge the need for some nicotine juice. The professor went to his kitchen and come out later with the pot of coffee and different kinds of cups for them to use. Some are cheap plastic cups, glass mug and an expensive porcelain cups. He then told them. "Okay, help yourself to the coffee.." When all of them are finished taking the cup coffee, he grab their attention by saying: " I heard all of you complaining about how difficult life was. How you just cant get enough from what you have." .. he continues " And I also observed that when I placed the different cups for you to pour your coffee into, most of you chose the expensive porcelain cups for yourself. When all you wanted was just coffee. Just imagine that life was the coffee that you want to enjoy, it does not need to be poured in an expensive porcelain cup for you to enjoy it. You just need to know what you want from life, thats all"
