Your coffee mug could start a listening movement that will allow others to talk to you as you have told them that they have a story to tell and you are willing to listen to it.
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.
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.
