    Thumbs up Hot Chocolate = Life

    Source - got in mail (though of sharing it accross)

    A group of graduates, well established in their careers, were talking at a reunion and decided to go visit their old university professor, now retired.

    During their visit, the conversation turned to complaints about stress in their work and lives.

    Offering his guests hot chocolate, the professor went into the kitchen and returned with a large pot of hot chocolate and an assortment of cups - porcelain, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite - telling them to help themselves to the hot chocolate.

    When they all had a cup of hot chocolate in hand, the professor said: "Notice that all the nice looking, expensive cups were taken, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal for you to want only the best for urselves, that is the source of your problems and stress.

    The cup dat u re drinking from adds nothing to the quality of the hot chocolate. In most cases it is just more expensive and in some cases even hides what we drink.

    What all of you really wanted was hot chocolate, not the cup; but you consciously went for the best cups... And then you began eyeing each other's cups.

    Now consider this: Life is the hot chocolate; your job, money and position in society are the cups.

    They are just tools to hold and contain life.

    The cup you have does not define, nor change the quality of life you have.

    Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the hot chocolate God has provided us. God makes the hot chocolate, man chooses the cups. The happiest people don't have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything that they have.

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. And enjoy your hot chocolate.

    The post says something else. It says wear a good jeans even if it is not branded. Because what you need is a jeans not a levi.

    I remember similar quotes from Warren Buffet. If you spend money on things you do not need, you may soon end up selling things you need.
