Two cups of coffee…One empty jar.~ by rldubour


 

 

 

 

Two cups of coffee…One empty jar.

Put one pail of sand and one empty jar on your list.
Wait until something annoys you, before all the stress try this.

Take the jar out and fill it with
stones,
Place the jar on the table and leave it
alone. 

You say it’s now full right to the
brim.
Not one more stone would ever fit
in.

 

Now add some small pebbles and fill
the jar once again.
Watch as the pebbles fill in the spaces

all the stones left within.

You say it’s now full right to the
brim.
Not one more pebble would ever fit
in.

Now take enough sand and fill
to the brim.
Watch the sand fill the spaces that are still left within.

You say it’s now full right to the
brim.
Not one grain of sand would ever fit
in.

Take two cups of coffee watch it fill in the holes
The jar is now full and nothing more will it hold. 

Let’s pretend this jar, is our
daily life.

The stones are the important things help make things right.

 


Like God, family, health and
your loving spouse.
The pebbles are the other things like
work, car and your house.

Sand is everything else you want, all the small stuff you see.
If we put the sand in the jar first
then where would we be?

 

If the sand went in first, no room for
the pebbles or stones.
The same goes for our life, the important things are not shown.

In case someone is asking those two cups of coffee filling the jar to its end

No matter how full your life seems to be, there is time for coffee and friends.
