Life is like a cup of coffee..

A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old university professor. Conversation soon turned into 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 - porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite - telling them to help themselves to the coffee.

When all the students 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 only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress.

Be assured that the cup itself adds no quality to the coffee. In most cases it is 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 cups.

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.

Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee. Savor the coffee, not the cups! The happiest people don't have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything. Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

Energy-saving fan

The holiday season is approaching but I still feel the humidity around. Ah!Global warming! Are you feeling the same way? But thought of cost cutting and so instead of having the air condition on for long hours, maybe additional ceiling fans would be of great help. The good thing about this present time is that, you don't need to sweat around searching for the best or shall I say quality products and deal with the traffic along downtown area. Online stores are just clicks away!

I think one of the best things about purchasing online product such as ceiling fan, is that each detail is well presented from frames, functions, packages, and up to learning about the latest design and features. But of course who says you can't bargain? Actually you can. They also offer great discounts especially now that the holiday season is around the corner. I go for energy-saving fan and found Hansen Wholesale Ceiling Fans offering this great deal. You too may be in one with me. Find out who makes the Best Ceiling Fans here!:)
