The Happy and the Unhappy Mugs

Let me share this write-up originally posted on another blogging platform. 
I decided to edit and make a re-post. 
Perhaps a personal reminder  for me to appreciate and enjoy the day!
the two mugs

There goes my mugs. I just noticed them while preparing to work today. And guess what?  They’ve been whispering conflicting thoughts to me this morning.

The unhappy mug expects another day of work. With so much to accomplish, the day could be another drag. There'll be  a lot of sighing and frowning. He’s always not in the mood because he knows that unfavorable circumstances might arise again (and again).

On the other hand, the second mug looks pretty cheerful. Well, he decided to fix a smile on his face. He’s looking at the brighter side. Whether overwhelmed by work  or not, he simply enjoy the day. Maybe he’s in denial  but it seems that things are working in his favor. He has mastered the art of being hopeful. (and I envy him!)

Anyway, my day today  could be a blend of both. There’ll be joys and worries too. Nevertheless, I should keep the happy mug by my side. Better take a sip often and be reminded that the right attitude towards everything plays a vital part.

By the way let me introduce you to my third mug, the laughing mug.

Have a wonderful weekend, folks!

Great post. For me the 'Happy Mug' is always the best choice. We are as happy as we make up our minds up to be. It is always better to think positively, even when things don't go our way. Thanks for sharing.

well, oks na oks ang life kung sisimulan ng may ngiti at puno ng positivity,
pero we must admit minsan mahirap i maintain ung positivity pero aun through prayers na lang siguro

Loved your line,"He has mastered the art of being hopeful." In whatever difficult situations we're in, we shouldn't lose that. Thanks for the positive thought.

Your mugs remind us of two sides of life. :)
