I belong to an amazing group of entrepreneurs here in Charleston called Hatch Tribe (#girlboss). We meet once or twice a month to discuss topics relevant to making our lives and our businesses more authentic and successful. One of the writers for the blog shared this amazing thought and I just had to pass it on!
What is in your cup?
Imagine this: You are holding a cup of coffee when someone comes along and bumps into you, making you spill your coffee everywhere.
Why did you spill the coffee?
…You spilled the coffee because there was coffee in your cup.
Had there been tea in the cup, you would have spilled tea.
Whatever is inside the cup, is what will spill out.
Therefore, when life comes along and shakes you, (which WILL happen), whatever is inside you will come out. It’s easy to fake it, until you get rattled.
So we have to ask ourselves…”what is in my cup?” When life gets tough, what spills over?
Joy, gratefulness, peace and humility?
Or anger, bitterness, harsh words and reactions?
