I was unaware of that “Carrot, egg, or coffee” meant. Without question, grandmothers are the wisest people.
Every time we encounter challenges in life, we are compelled to talk to individuals close to us about our worries and concerns so that we can realize we are not alone.
A woman found out about her husband’s infidelity one day. She went to her grandma because her world had fallen into a million pieces, and wanted someone to talk to. After hearing her explanation of the circumstance, the elderly older woman followed her to the kitchen. She took three pots and started boiling water there. She then placed a carrot, an egg, and some coffee beans into other banks.
Every time we face difficulties in life, we feel forced to share our fears and concerns with those who are near us to realize that we are not alone.
One day the wife learned of her husband’s affair. She went to her grandmother because she needed someone to talk to after her world broke into a million pieces. Hearing her explain the situation, the older woman invited her to follow her to the kitchen. She gathered three pots and began to boil water in them. She then added coffee beans, a carrot, and an egg to other banks.
Adversities can sometimes soften us, just like the water did to the carrot. We triumph over our issues and emerge more adaptable and more understanding. Sometimes, like the egg, we arise more rigid and more robust. If we choose to be a coffee bean, we do our best to adjust the circumstance so that it works best for us and raise ourselves to a higher level rather than letting it impact us.
That day, the granddaughter picked up a crucial lesson.
Who are you, exactly? The coffee bean, the egg, or the carrot?
