Once a daughter complained to her father that her Life was miserable n that she didnít know how she was going to make it.

She was tired of fighting n struggling all the time.

It seemed just as one problem was solved, another one soon followed.

Her father, a chef, took her to d kitchen.

He filled three pots with water n placed each on a high fire.
Once d three pots began to boil,
He placed potatoes in one pot,
Eggs in d second pot n ground coffee beans in d third pot.

He then let them sit n boil, without saying a word to his daughter.

The daughter, moaned n impatiently waited, wondering what he was doing. After twenty minutes he turned off d burners.

He took d potatoes out of d pot n placed them in a bowl.
He pulled d eggs out n placed them in a bowl.
He then ladled d coffee out n placed it in a cup.

Turning to her, he asked.
"Daughter, what do you see?"
"Potatoes, eggs n coffee", she hastily replied.

"Look closer", he said, "n touch d potatoes."
She did n noted that they were soft.
He then asked her to take an egg n break it. After pulling off d shell, she observed d hard-boiled egg.
Finally, he asked her to sip d coffee.
Its rich aroma brought a smile to her face.

"Father, what does this mean?" she asked.

He then explained that d potatoes, d eggs n coffee beans had each faced d same adversity- d boiling water.

However, each one reacted differently.
The potato went in strong,
hard n unrelenting, but in boiling water, it became soft n weak.

The egg was fragile, with d thin outer shell protecting its liquid interior
until it was put in d boiling water.
Then d inside of d egg became hard.

However, d ground coffee beans were unique. After they were exposed to d boiling water, they changed d water n created something new.

"Which one 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 d only thing that truly matters is how we choose to react to it n what we make out of it.

Life is all about learning,
adopting n converting all d struggles that we experience into something positive.
