Picture Love as a cup of coffee, rich and complex, bold and enticing. Coffee is longed for each day by those of us that are used to having it. Coffee exists as a labor of love from countless names working to make your cup possible. You pick how much work you want to put into making a cup. Some people french press, and some people want to press a button. You find what works for your life and each day you get to enjoy something wonderful.
Picture Hate as a single drop of cream. When you allow just a single drop into a cup of rich black coffee, white clouds billow, expanding into every drop in every corner. A single drop changes the shade of the entire drink.
Hate does not come to us in waves. Anger, furry, and frustration all come in waves, but Hate comes in a single drop. Hate comes to us in the small choice to let it in. To let in a single drop is to change the entire shade of our being.
There is a moment we all find somehow. We choose to let in a droplet of Hate. We allow ourselves to indulge and give in to allure of Hate. Once you have truly felt that feeling, once you have let that drop of Hate in, you can never fully return to the original shade. No matter how much more coffee you add to the cup, there will always be a slight shade of white. Hate will always be with you because you know you are capable of choosing to let one drop in.
Put work into a good cup of coffee and make time to enjoy it each day. Try to avoid letting too many drops of cream into your coffee. Limit your own use and definitely never let anyone else pour. Remember, if you overdo it on the cream, you can always take a big swig and add more coffee. Always go back for more coffee.
