Dear Internet visitor,
Subject :- The Story of Carrot, Egg
and Coffee Bean.
A carrot, an egg
and a cup of coffee.
You will never look at a cup of coffee the same way again.
A young woman went to her mother and told her about her life and
how tings ere so hard for her. She did not know how she was
to make it and wanted to give up. She was
tired of fighting and
struggling. It seemed as the problem was
solved, a new one arose.
Her mother took her to the kitchen. She filled
three pots with water
and placed each on a high fire. Soon the pots
came to boil. In the
first she placed carrots, in the second she
placed eggs, and in the
last she placed ground coffee beans. She let
them sit and boil,
without saying a word. In about twenty minutes
she turned off the
She fished the carrots
out and placed them in
a bowl. She pulled
the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. Then
she ladled the
coffee out and placed it in a bowl. Turning to
her daughter, she asked,
"Tell me, what do you see?" "Carrots, eggs,
and coffee," she replied.
Her mother brought her closer and asked her to
feel the carrots. She
did and noted that they were soft. The mother
then asked the daughter
to take an egg and break it. After pulling off
the shell, she observed
the hard boiled egg.
Finally, the mother asked the daughter to sip
the coffee. The daughter
smiled as she tasted its rich aroma. The
daughter then asked, "What
does it mean, mother?" Her mother explained
that each of these
objects had faced the same adversity, boiling
water. Each reacted
The carrot went in strong, hard, and
unrelenting. However, after
being subjected to the boiling water, it
softened and became weak.
The egg had been fragile.Its thin outer shell
had protected its liquid
interior, but after sitting through the
boiling water, its inside
hardened. The ground coffee beans were unique,
they were in the boiling water, they had
changed the water. "Which
are you?" she asked her daughter.
"When adversity knocks on your door, how do
you respond? Are
you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?"
Think of this: Which am I?
Am I the carrot that seems strong, but with
pain and adversity do
I wilt and become soft and lose my strength?
Am I the egg that starts with a malleable
heart, but changes with
Did I have a fluid spirit, but after a death,
a break-up, a financial
hardship or some other trial, have I become
hardened and stiff?
Does my shell look the same, but on the inside
am I bitter and
tough with a stiff spirit and hardened heart?
Or am I like the coffee bean?
The bean actually changes the hot water,the
that brings the pain. When the water gets hot,
it releases the
fragrance and flavour. If you are like the
bean, when things are
at their worst, you get better and change the
situation around you.
When the hour is the darkest and trials are
their greatest, do you
elevate yourself to another level?
How do you handle adversity?
Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?
May you have enough happiness to make you
sweet, enough trials
to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you
human and enough
hope to make you happy.
The happiest of people don't necessarily have
the best of everything;
they just make the most of everything that
comes along their way.
The brightest future will always be based on a
forgotten past; you
can't go forward in life until you let go of
your past failures and
When you were born, you were crying and
everyone around you
was smiling. Live your life so at the end,
you're the one who is
smiling and everyone around you is crying.
To those who have touched your life in one way
or another; to
those who make you smile when you really need
it; to those who
make you see the brighter side of things when
you are really
down; to those whose friendship you
appreciate; to those who
are so meaningful in your life.
You might want to send this message to those
people who mean
something to you.

repair an adult."
