The mayonnaise jar and 2 cups of coffee

We often forget what is important things for our life.

Here is one good story to remember what we really need in our life…:)


The mayonnaise jar and 2 cups of coffee

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him.  When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls.  He then asked the students if the jar was full.  They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly.  The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls.  He then asked the students again if the jar was full.  They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar.  Of course, the sand filled up everything else.  He asked once more if the jar was full.  The students responded with a unanimous “yes.”

The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively  filling the empty space between the sand.  The students laughed.

“Now,” said the professor, as the laughter subsided, ” I  want you to recognize that this jar represents your life.

“The golf balls are the important things — your God, family, your children, your health, your friends, and your favorite passions — things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.

“The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house, and your car.

“The sand is everything else — the small stuff.

“If you put the sand into the jar first,” he continued, “there is no room for the pebbles or golf balls.  The same goes for life.  If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you.

“Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.
Play with your children.
Take time to get medical checkups.
Take your partner out to dinner.
Play another 18.
There will always be time to clean the house and ‘fix the disposal’.

“Take  care of the golf balls first — the things that really matter.  Set your priorities.  The rest is just sand.”

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented.

The professor smiled.  “I’m glad you asked.  It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there’s always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend.”

The Secret Language of Your Body: The Essential Guide to Health and Wellness




One of the foods I really love.

In my childhood, my Mom made hotcakes for me and sister.

Usually, Japanese hotcakes are thicker and softer than pancakes….but my Mom’s were always flat and not really soft….lol

Well, still for me, it was a great memory and my first cooking was hotcakes for my family in my elementary school.

In the States, pancakes with omelet were my favorite meal and now in Japan, I miss that pancakes meal…

So, I decided to make my own pancakes. I thought I could not make what I really had in the States, but I realized that my Mom always made her own hotcakes for us and these are in my heart and my partner once said me I do not have to be the same. I should be Keiko, as I am…these always encourage me….My pancakes has some unique ingredients such as muesli, soy beans flour and black sesame, because I would like to have many kind of foods in a day. And, muesli contains many nuts and dried fruits etc…Don’t you think it is good for our beauty and health? What I would like to do is enjoy cooking and eat healthy to keep beauty for myself, for my partner! 😉

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup of Milk
  • 3/4 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 3/4cup of muesli
  • 1 table spoon of soy beans flour
  • 1 table spoon of grained black sesame
  • 1 table spoon of brown sugar
  • little salt

Beat 2 eggs in a bowl and add muesli and stir.

Add milk and little by little put flour and each time stir really well. If you feel the dough is hard, then add milk and stir well.

Add sugar, salt, soy beans flour and grained black sesame and blend well.

Heat a pan, and pour dough and brown on both side and serve with butter and honey or maple syrup!

Manage your headache…


How many people have headache?

Yes…I have!

When I have many deadlines, and have to sit in front of my PC for a long time, yes, my headache starts with neck pain……:(

According to Wikipedia, there are 200 types of headaches…oh my!

Tension and migraine are common types.

What are causes of our headache?

Many causes…medication overuse, a lot of caffeine, weather, food, stress, neck stiffness, brain disease, sleepless, tiredness, distortion of your body etc….

Transient ischemic attack, many of TIA patients just thought they had headache and some other wired symptoms, but not thought really serious.

Then, some people get more serious damages when they really realize what happen in their brains.

I am not a physician or any medical practitioners, but I found good reason to manage headache is to keep our life more enjoyable.

And found a good management application of our headache.

Dr. Mauskop’s headache center released headache management application at iTunes.

One of testimonial said that she had headaches, and kept diary about her headache.

After analysis of her headache, she found causes of her headache are caffeine and lack of sleep.

Then, after she reduced caffeine take, and improved sleep, she has no headache.

It is good, isn’t it??

You do not have to suffer from your headaches, and if you find more serious reasons, just go to see your medical doctors as soon as you can.

Please have a time to talk with your body.

You might find many things you have not realized…

Our body is amazing….
