Enjoy the Coffee:

Subject: Enjoy the 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 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 of r the best cups and were eyeing each other's cups.
 Now consider this: Life is the coffee, and the jobs, money and position
 in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain Life,
 and do not change the quality of Life. Some times, by concentrating
 only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee God has provided."

 "So, don't let the cups drive you... enjoy the coffee instead."

Good story. Funny, I would have probably chosen a plain cup unless it was stained or cracked.
