Train your mind to see good in every person and every situation

Train your mind to see good in every person and every situation:

🍶 An elderly woman had two large pots, each hung on the ends of a pole which she carried across her neck.

🍶 One of the pots had a crack in it while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water.

🍶 At the end of the long walks from the stream to the house, the cracked pot arrived only half full.

🍶 For a full two years this went on daily, with the woman bringing home only one and a half pots of water..

🍶 Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments.

🍶 But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and miserable that it could only do ha lf of what it had been made to do.

🍶 After two years of what it perceived to be bitter failure, it spoke to the woman one day by the stream.

🍶  'I am ashamed of myself, because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your house.

🍶 The old woman smiled, 'Did you notice that there are flowers on your side of the path, but not on the other pot's side?'

🍶 'That's because I have always known about your flaw, so I planted flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back, you water them.'

🍶 For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate the table.

🍶 Without you being just the way you are, there would not be this beauty to grace the house.'

🍶 Each of us has our own unique flaw. But it's the cracks and flaws we each have that make our lives together so very interesting and rewarding.

🍶 You've just got to take each person for what they are and look for the good in them.

🍶 SO, to all of my cracked pot friends, have a great day and remember to smell the flowers on your side of the path!

🍶 And send this to any or all of your Cracked Pot friends and see what a smile you will put on their faces.

🍶 Don't forget the Crack Pot that posted this for you!!
