BLOG: IN THE KITCHEN OF LIFE
Last week we spoke about having a complaint free day…How did you do? Remember that it takes practice to re-train your mind to think differently. There is a gravitational pull back to the familiar so be patient with your amazing self!
Today, I wanted to share a story that goes along with the theme. Enjoy!
A young woman was complaining to her mother about how difficult her life had become. Her mother said nothing but took her to the kitchen and set three pans of water to boil. To the first pan she added carrots, to the second eggs and to the third ground coffee. After the three had cooked she put the contents into separate bowls and asked her daughter to cut into the eggs,the carrots and smell the coffee. “What does this all mean?”,the daughter asked impatiently.
“Each food, the mother said, teaches us something about facing adversity as represented by the boiling water. The carrot went in hard but came out soft and weak. The eggs went in fragile and came out hardened. The coffee however, changed the water to something better.”
“Which would you like as you face life?”, she asked. “Will you give up, become hard or transform adversity into triumph? As the chef of your own life, what will you bring to the table?” (Taken from Bits and Pieces Magazine)
So, as you go through your week realize that you always have choices…
To Your Choices.
