Life is like a cup of COFFEE

I just read an article called "Life is like a cup of coffee". Let me re-state the main content for this article.

A group of people come back to their university to visit their profession one year later after their graduation. And everybody discusses and complains about how difficult is the life leading them to...and how much frustration they meet during the working life and personal life. At this moment, a profession holds many cups stepping in the room which the cups are made in various material and in different designs, some of them are made by plastic, porcelain, crystal etc. with plain looking, with cute carton imprint or flower imprint etc...Those cups are for coffee to entertain the visitors. 

All people come to select different cups they like to make their coffee, nobody takes the plain looking plastic coffee cup.  When all the visitors hold a cup of coffee in their hands, the professor starts to talk with smiling: 
"If you have noticed, all the good looking and expensive coffee cups had been taken, just leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. That shows that it is normal for you to want only the best for yourself, that is the source of your problem and stress"

We are awared that the cup itself is nothing related to the quality and taste of the coffee. And what we want really is the coffee, not the cup, but consciously you went for the best cups, and then, you guys began eyeing each other's cups. 

Now just think about this: Life is the coffee, the jobs, money, position in the society are the cups. They are just the tools to hold the life, and the type of cup we have does not define, nor change the quality of the life we live. Sometimes. by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee. Don't let the cups drive you, but just enjoy the coffee instead!
