Life is Like a Cup of Coffee

Happened to chance upon this video on Youtube — visually stunning and the words are thought-provoking and inspiring.

Recently a distant relative fell and hit her head on the ground. She fell into a coma later and died soon after from massive head injury. Then I heard another sad incident of a boy who accidently fell from a highrise and was declared braindead, his life sustained only by a machine.  

Such tragic real-life incidents made me realise life is really unpredictable. No one knows what is going to happen in the next moment. The inspiring words in this video has prompted me to be even more appreciative of life. Like what it says in the video,

“The happiest people do not have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything.”

“Live simply; speak kindly; care deeply; love generously.” 

very inspiring!

You’re welcome, Brenda! The video is also a timely reminder to all parents (including myself) especially during this Primary 1 registration period that even if we can’t get our child into the elite school we want, we shld not be overly stressed or depressed over it cos as Staranz rightly commented here, "…our child can shine in any school if we believe he/she can."

You're welcome, bezzlay! :)

You’re welcome, kiddo! Hope this inspiring video enlightens you as much as it has done for me. 🙂

It's our child that matters, not the school

Hi Staranz, you’ve just said it so wisely: "…any child can shine in any school if you as the parent believes your child can." True indeed!

Like you said, many of us are enslaved by our education system of having to enroll our children in elite or branded schools. But actually it’s our child that shld be more important, not the school (it’s the coffee, not the cup that matters!)

 

That's wisdom !

Thanks for sharing. It reinforces my belief that any child can shine in any school if you as the parent believes your child can. It is sad that all of us are enslaved by the system.

Contentment is great gain!

"The happiest people do not have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything."
