Overfloweth Your Cup
Think of life as a cup. Everyday refill it with love of what you have and the feelings of having what you want. If you feel bad, then remember your cup is empty. You can't fill a cup by raging war against the emptiness of a cup. Remind yourself to fill your cup and overflow by creating your very own overflowing cup fountain.
