Sometimes we just need to be reminded of the good things in life.

Theresa February 8, 2012 at 1:44 PM

So So TRUE.

Vivien February 1, 2012 at 12:49 AM

Thought it was nicely done and thought provoking.

Melissa February 1, 2012 at 1:21 AM

Wow, how true. Thank you for sharing……

Joy Small February 1, 2012 at 2:28 AM

This video is just so true, please people wake up and smell the flowers now and again.

Gerti Krebs February 1, 2012 at 4:01 AM

beautiful words, and so simply told.

Annette February 1, 2012 at 4:15 AM

What a riveting parable for life in this contemporary age. The desire for wealth, material possessions and happiness often becomes an ambush for most. So if one would only take a hold of the wisdom this life parable unfolds and applied it, you will find it will produce a more abundant life.

This is cool….

Robert de leon February 1, 2012 at 7:17 AM

It is a gem and one we should strive for and take time to smell the aroma.

thank you that was a great summary of the corporate world, one that is easy to get caught up in, with others expectations of the cup size, shape and colour to be so, never knowing what is inside the cup, but with no hesitation to assume it is coffee because it is a coffee cup, but the quality and authenticity is never assessed, nor valued. Great stuff.

I thoroughly enjoyed watching the clip, it made me stop and become aware of what is important in life. I love the saying Live Simple, Speak Kindly, Care Deeply and Love Generously. I have written it down and pinned it near my computer to remind me what is important. Thank you.

It is better to have say Caro which is a cereal coffee in place of coffee which has caffeine. Trouble with coffee say in excess of 4 cups or more a day is that it can lead to depression once the caffeine has worn off. It is better to hydrate with water to keep on a even keel and not have the highs and lows of caffeineated drinks. Thank you.

I think somehow you missed the point, its not about health choices but life choices and what we strive for in our work and private lives.
In any case Caro tastes like third rate instant coffee, and most american coffee, especially the brewed stuff mentioned in the video is also dreadful quality, the cup you drink it from mibht be the best part of the experience.
One of my favourite lines is “life is too short to drink bad coffee”!

So true, we need these reminders to keep us true to ourselves.

Harald February 2, 2012 at 1:03 AM

It is not only nice, it make me change. I will do what it suggests.
Thank you

Linda February 2, 2012 at 11:12 AM

Brilliant – thanks for the reminder! It certainly puts ‘life’ into perspective. Well done.

trisha February 3, 2012 at 12:30 AM

Wonderful. I became very emotional so must have been a very timely reminder. Thank you Deb xx

I disagree with this. The cup is important. Using a high quality, beautifully crafted cup brings great delight.
I see quality as a measure of embedded love. For example, a glass cup carefully made by a local master craftsperson contains much more love than a factory-made plastic cup shipped halfway around the world. Quality has nothing to do with brand names and little to do with money in our topsy-turvy economy.
A high quality item delights and satisfies for a lifetime or more. There is no urge to go and buy large quantities or to buy a new one every year, when surrounded by high quality items radiating their embedded love.
The key is to be satisfied with what we have. This is easier when our basic necessities are of high quality.
So next time you go shopping ask yourself –
Do you really need it?
Is it made locally out of locally-sourced natural materials, created with skill and respect for the local environment?
This applies to cups, food, clothing, furniture, housing,everything.

krzystoff February 25, 2012 at 7:08 AM

I concur with your statements though I also think this video offers some useful insight into getting the most from life, and not focusing on shallow material pursuits. Personally I think we should buy locally where it is possible, but this is more pertinent to items you consume/replace frequently, not so much for long term investments like a car.
unfortunately the execution has somehow missed its mark, as the example used was quite subjective.

Marie February 7, 2012 at 2:20 AM

The smallest, simplest things in life are often the best, live true to yourself.

Dr Ariella Williams February 8, 2012 at 1:51 AM

How simple the message is and how true, but how often do we forget to look past the exterior appearance of things and events? It is important that we do not forget that we need to work on being rather than having.

Alaina February 8, 2012 at 3:20 AM

These words of wisdom put me in the present instantly.

Marie February 8, 2012 at 7:26 AM

This message is so very true and very meaningful at this time. I LOVED this and will forward to all my friends – Many THANKS – Marie

Robin Faulkner February 9, 2012 at 1:30 AM

yes, it is about possessions and wants – but for me it is about people – look past the exterior and see the person for their worth. Nicely done.
Thank you.

Great words, music okay. I’m a simple visual person. Time is money for a lot of people. Pity not more thought could have gone into what the video looked like.. Don’t think I’m not grateful all free information shared is a bonus! Yes a lot of people “want” so much and could learn to do with less. I’m fortunate to live in the country so have alot of time to smell the roses!

Peter Bowler February 9, 2012 at 7:24 AM

God, please grant me the wisdom to remain humble and appreciate all that I have in my life. Whilst I don’t drink coffee, nor have any expensive cups, it is messages like these that truly give meaning to our lives.

Judith Wade February 11, 2012 at 2:38 AM
