And for those of you chai lovers, here’s one for you to drink to…..
I’d like to share a quote from an Advertisement I came across many years back – I truly don’t remember the source….Do let me know if you can help me recollect it.
I call it LIFE IS LIKE HAVING A CUP OF TEA
- “You sit by the window with a book in your lap, while soft wisps of steam curl up from the tea-cup. You lift the cup, assume a mid-distant gaze and take a careless little sip. Only to realize, somebody forgot to put in the sugar. Too lazy to limber up, you somehow struggle through that sugarless cup! Till you, ruefully, discover undissolved sugar crystals sitting at the bottom. By then, it is too late…..” -Author unknown but greatly appreciated!
How true… At least for most of us….We live our life in bitter regret, maybe even blaming others for unachieved dreams and unfulfilled hopes. With our eyes on the distant horizon waiting for that day farther away in the future when we will finally see all our dreams come true and all our wishes fulfilled,we forget to make full use of the “NOW”, of what we already have,of what is rightfully ours. Isn’t it true that it is our attitude that truly determines our altitude? If we give up on ourselves and assume a loser attitude assuming that the victory we are waiting for is too far away and so stop looking for it, we might just miss it when it does finally show up! 😦
I love this quote by Glorie Abelhas: “Good fortune shies away from gloom. Keep your spirits up. Good things will come to you and you will come to good things.”
