Be positive and optimistic
« on: March 18, 2014, 10:57:36 PM »
Sometimes you feel that the life is miserable and you don’t know how you are going to make it.  You are tired of fighting and struggling all the time. It seemed just as one problem was solved, another one soon followed.

Take three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Once the three pots began to boil, place potatoes in one pot, eggs in the second pot and ground coffee beans in the third pot.  Just let them sit and boil. After twenty minutes turn off the burners. Take the potatoes out of the pot and place them in a bowl. Pull the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. Ladle the coffee out and place it in a cup.

What you are seeing? You put hard potato and found it soft. You put breakable egg, now it is hard and finally the coffee beans turned the water into such drink with sweet aroma right?

Here is the explanation according to me.

The potatoes, the eggs and coffee beans have each face the same adversity-the boiling water. However, each one reacted differently. The potato went in strong, hard and unrelenting, but in boiling water, it became soft and weak. The egg was fragile, with the thin outer shell protecting its liquid interior until it was put in the boiling water. Then the inside of the egg became hard. However, the ground coffee beans were unique. After they were exposed to the boiling water, they changed the water and created something new.

Which one are you when adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a potato, an egg, or a coffee bean?
Look, In our life, things happen around us and things happen to us, but the only thing that truly matters is how you choose to react to it and what you make out of it. Life is all about leaning, adopting and converting all the struggles that we experience into something positive.

So dear all be positive and optimistic. Don’t think what you don’t have, think what you have. Hope this will make life easy and peaceful, serene, clam and nonviolent.

But sometimes it's really difficult to get rid of some anxieties of life and truly I feel very helpless.
