Brighten someone's life with this motivation

I love this message and my first thought was to share:

Carrot, an egg, and a cup of coffee......
You will never look at a cup of coffee the same way again.

A young woman went to her mother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up. She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as when one problem was solved, a new one arose.

Her mother took her to the kitchen. She filled three pots with water and placed each
on a high fire. Soon the pots came to boil.

In the first she placed carrots,
In the second she placed eggs and
In the last she placed ground coffee beans.

She let them sit and boil; without saying a word.
In about twenty minutes she turned off the burners.

She fished the carrots out and placed them in a bowl.
She pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl.
Then she ladled the coffee out and placed it in a bowl.
Turning to her daughter, she asked, "Tell me what you see."
"Carrots, eggs, and coffee," she replied.

Her mother brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots.
She did and noted that they were soft.
The mother then asked the daughter to take an egg and break it.
After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard boiled egg.
Finally, the mother asked the daughter to sip the coffee.
The daughter smiled as she tasted its rich aroma.
The daughter then asked, "What does it mean, mother?"

Her mother explained that each of these objects
had faced the same adversity: boiling water.

Each reacted differently.
The carrot went in strong, hard, and unrelenting.
However, after being subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak.

The egg had been fragile. Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior, but after sitting through the boiling water, its inside became hardened.

However, the ground coffee beans were unique.
After they were in the boiling water, they had changed the water.

"Which are you?" she asked her daughter.
When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond?
Are you a carrot, an egg,or a coffee bean?"
Think of this: Which am I?

Am I the carrot that seems strong, but with pain and
adversity do I wilt and become soft and lose my strength?

Am I the egg that starts with a malleable heart, but changes with the heat?
Did I have a fluid spirit, but after a death, a breakup,
a financial hardship or some other trial, have I become hardened and stiff? Does my shell look the same, but on the inside am I bitter and tough with a stiff spirit and hardened heart?

Or am I like the coffee bean?
The bean actually changes the hot water, the very circumstance that brings the pain. When the water gets hot, it releases the fragrance and flavor.
If you are like the bean, when things are at their worst, you get better and change the situation around you.

When the hour is the darkest and trials are their greatest
do you elevate yourself to another level?
How do you handle adversity?

Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?
The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best
of everything; they just make the most of everything that
comes along their way.

The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past; you can't go forward in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches.

When you were born, you were crying and everyone
around you was smiling.

Live your life so at the end, you're the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.

You might want to share this message:
To those people who mean something to you,
To those who have touched your life in one way or another;
To those who make you smile when you really need it;
To those who make you see the brighter side of things
when you are really down;
To those whose friendship you appreciate;
To those who are so meaningful in your life.

Try to brighten someone's life with this message!

 BE COFFEE!!!!! have a nice day

Make do and leverage on every pain and turn it to gain, by asking God for strength to be patient, calm and be enduring... Life is hard and difficult, Yes I know... But If you know what you're really made off, you will never get or let yourself be underestimated by Life or anyone. The more the heat, the more u reshape and comes out better like a Gold.

I am that Coffee the Elderly Woman speak off... What are u? Ask Yourself.

I love you enough to want to share this thought of mine and a friends writeup, so help someone u love today by sharing this too... Thanks.
