Once upon a time there was a daughter complained to her father that her life was miserable and that she didn’t know how she was going to make it. She was tired of fighting and struggling all the time. It seemed just as one problem solved, another one soon followed.        
                   Her father, a chef and took her to the kitchen. He filled three pots with water and placed each on high fire. Once the three pots began to boil, he placed potatoes in the first pot, eggs in the second pot and ground coffee beans in the third pot. He then let them sit and boil, without saying a word to his daughter. The daughter moaned and impatiently waited and wondering what her father was doing.           

               After twenty minutes he turned off the burners. He took the potatoes out of the potand placed them in a bowl. He pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. He then ladled the coffee out and placed it in a cup and turning to her daughter and he asked “Daughter what do you see?”“Potatoes, eggs and coffee.” She hastily replied.“Look closer and touch the potatoes”, he said. She did and noted that they were soft. He then asked her to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard-boiled egg. Finally he asked her to sip the coffee. Its rich aroma brought brought a smile to her face. “Father, what does this mean?” she asked. He then explained that the potatoes, the eggs and coffee beans had each faced the same adversity- the boiling water. However, each one reacted differently.       
               The potato went in strong, hard and unrelenting, but in boiling water, it became soft and weak. The egg was fragile with the thin outer shells protecting its liquid interior until it was put in the boiling water. Then the inside of the egg become hard. However, the ground coffee beans were unique. After they were exposed to the boiling water, they changed the water and created something new.“Which are you?” he asked his daughter.“When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a potato, an egg, or a coffee bean?”

Moral: In life, things happen around us, things happen to us, but the only thing that truly matters is what happens within us.

Which one are you?
