A 10 year old boy entered a coffee shop and sat at a table. He asked “How much is an ice cream sundae?” “50 cents,” replied the waitress.
The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and studied a number of coins in it. He asked “How much is a dish of plain ice cream?”
Some people were now waiting for a table and the waitress was a bit impatient. “35 cents,” she said brusquely.
The little boy again counted the coins. “I’ll have the plain ice cream,” he said. The waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill on the table and walked away.
The boy finished the ice cream, paid the cashier and departed. When the waitress came back, she began wiping down the table and then swallowed hard at what she saw.
There, placed neatly beside the empty dish, were 15 cents – her tip.
Count your blessings. Gratitude is the fuel of resiliency. Train your mind to think of at least one thing for which you are thankful everyday. It is often easy to overlook the small but significant blessings in your life. Look for positive things outside of yourself, because sometimes you can not trust your mind.
