I was referred to this site that showed me a video clip titled "Life is Like Coffee Movie". This movie is about sharing the idea of life like a coffee and it really opened up my eyes and changed the way I view things in life now. This is a great video to be shared as it teaches to be humble and just enjoy life as it is.
Thanks ATK. =)
Life is Like Coffee Story
Picture from videophoneinsider.com
A group of alumni,
highly established in their careers,
got together to visit their old college professor.
Conversation soon turned to complaints about stress in work and life.

Offering his guests coffee,
the professor went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups-

some plain looking,
He told his guests to help themselves to the coffee.

After everyone had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor said:

If you noticed,
all the nice looking expensive cups have been taken up,
leaving behind the plain and cheap ones.

While it is normal for you to want on the best for yourselves,
that is the source of your problems and stress.

Be assured that the cup,
adds no quality to the coffee.

In most cases, it's just more expensive.
and in some cases, even hides what we drink.

What all of you really wanted,
was coffee, not the cup.

But you consciously went for the best cups...
And then you began eyeing each other's cup.
Now consider this...
Life is the Coffee;
The jobs, money and position in society are the cups.
They are just tools to hold and contain LIFE.

And the type of cup we have does not define,
nor change the quality of life we live.
by concentrating only on the cup,
we fail to enjoy the coffee.

Savor the coffee,
not the cup!
The happiest people don't have the best of everything.
They just make the best of everything!

The richest person is not the one who has the most,
but the one who needs the least.
