Life and Coffee

Found this in my webmail inbox. This came from a friend, a former co-worker. Jsut like to share it.

Life and Coffee

A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to
visit their old university lecturer. Conversation soon turned into
complaints about stress in work and life. Offering his guests coffee, the
lecturer went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and
an assortment of cups: porcelain, plastic, glass, some plain-looking and some
expensive and exquisite, telling them to help themselves to hot coffee.

When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the lecturer said: "If
you noticed, all the nice-looking, expensive cups were taken up, leaving
behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is but normal for you to want
only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress.
What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously
went for the better cups and are eyeing each other's cups."

Now, if life is coffee, then the jobs, money and position in society are
the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain life, but the quality of
life doesn't change.

Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee
in it.

Don't let the cups drive you...enjoy the coffee.

it has only been a month since classes started yet i feel like i'm so exhausted already. why? perhaps a lot of this has to do with adjustments. i am undergoing a lot of adjustments as of late. work related, family life related, financially related, even adjustments i can't seem to figure out until now.

however, slowly i am coping with the changes. with work, i just look forward to the weekend and everything turns out fine already. with family life changes, i just don't complain anymore....i just do things as they present bathing gabby even if it's not a weekend and preparing meals in the weekend which i rarely do now (i just came up with a new recipe yesterday but that is for another blog.) with our finances, well...still coping...i got back my car i had to give up a few weeks ago because of....yes, our current financial scenario.
everything seems to be coming back to its original state now and i vow never to let these things happen again. (still i can't use my cellphone because i have t leave it with gabby so wifey can contact them, technology not working at its fullest that's why. our helper's fone can't get any signal from our place. this still has not returned to its original state).

it's a monday, hectic and manic yet a few days from now, it's the weekend already, time for myself and my family. can't wait for the weekend to arrive.
