Para pensar…Cómo somos??


Una hija se quejaba a su padre acerca de su vida y cómo las cosas le resultaban difíciles.

No sabía cómo hacer para seguir adelante, creía que se daría por vencida.

Estaba cansada de luchar. Parecía que cuando solucionaba un problema aparecía otro.

Su padre, un chef de cocina, la llevó a su lugar de trabajo.

Allí llenó 3 ollas con agua y las puso sobre fuego fuerte. Pronto el agua de las 3 ollas estaba hirviendo.

En una colocó zanahorias, en otra colocó huevos y en la última colocó granos de café.

Las dejó hervir sin decir palabra.

La hija esperó impacientemente, preguntándose que estaría haciendo su padre.

A los veinte minutos el padre apagó el fuego; sacó las zanahorias y las colocó en un recipiente.

Sacó los huevos y los colóco en un plato. Coló el café y lo puso en una taza.

Mirando a su hija le dijo: “ ¿querida que ves?”.

“Zanahorias, huevos y café”, fue su respuesta.

La hizo acercarse y le pidió que tocara las zanahorias. Ella lo hizo y notó que estaban blandas.

Luego le pidió que tomara un huevo y lo rompiera. Al sacarle la cascara, observó que el huevo estaba duro.

Luego, le pidió que probara el café. Ella sonrió mientras disfrutaba de su rico aroma.

Humildemente la hija le pregunto: “que significa esto, padre?”

Él le explicó que los 3 elementos habían enfrentado la misma adversidad: AGUA HIRVIENDO pero habían reaccionado de manera diferente.

La ZANAHORIA llegó al agua fuerte, dura. Pero después de pasar por el agua hirviendo se había vuelto débil, fácil de deshacer.

El HUEVO, había llegado al agua frágil. Su cáscara fina protegía su interior líquido. Pero después de estar en agua hirviendo, su interior se había endurecido.

Los GRANOS DE CAFÉ, sin embargo, eran los únicos que después de estar en agua hirviendo, habían cambiado al agua.

“Cual eres tú?”, le pregunto a su hija. “Cuando la adversidad llama a tu puerta,” ¿Cómo respondes? Eres UNA ZANAHORIA, UN HUEVO O UN GRANO DE CAFÉ?”

¿Y cómo eres tú?: eres una Zanahoria que parece fuerte pero cuando el dolor y la adversidad te tocan, te vuelves débil y pierdes la fortaleza?

¿Eres un Huevo, que comienza con el corazón maleable? ¿Posees un espíritu fluido, pero después de una perdida, una separación, un divorcio o un despido te has vuelto duro y rígido? Por fuera te ves igual, pero “eres amargado y áspero”, con un espíritu y un corazón endurecido?

¿O eres un GRANO DE CAFÉ?

¿EL CAFÉ? Cambia al agua hirviente, el elemento que le causa dolor. Cuando el agua llega a punto de ebullición el café alcanza su mejor sabor.

Si eres como un GRANO DE CAFÉ, cuando las cosas se ponen peor, tu reaccionas mejor y haces que las cosas a tu alrededor mejoren.

¿Cómo manejas la adversidad?
