Everyone has a story - I'll listen to yours Coffee Mug 11oz


Your Everyone has a story – I'll listen to yours coffee mug is telling everyone you meet that you are willing to listen to them. Not to give advice Not to solve problems. Not to do something for them but:

Just to sit and listen to them.

What is on your coffee mug is inspired by Desiderata whose second verse goes like this:

"Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story." From which comes - Everyone has a story - I'll listen to yours

You are not expected to solve the world's problems but when people speak to each other (or one talks while the other listens) it could change your perspective on the world and it may change theirs. As you are drinking your coffee or tea you will be told some amazing stories, one that the teller has so wanted to share, but no one was prepared to listen to them but you were.

You might plant some sparks of understanding, but you might also start a fire of peace of mind, all because you were willing to listen. You would have listened and gained an appreciation of why the individual is the way they are (their thoughts, feeling & emotions), whether the story is sad, humorous, uplifting, or something else.

Even though we are more connected than ever, we are also lonelier than ever. Everyone is in a rush: chasing money, career, kids we barely have time to talk to each other than “Hey how are you?”,

To which we often reply “Fine, thanks”

Even though it is not always true.

People can't openly talk about what is troubling them to their bosses, colleagues, friend, partners, employees because of fear, shame or some other reason.

When you are drinking from your new coffee mug people may ask you what the coffee mugs says or ask you what it says and away the conversation goes. All without you having said a word.

Whether you're drinking your morning coffee, evening tea, or something in between – this mug's for you! It's sturdy and glossy with a vivid print that'll withstand the microwave and dishwasher.
