A Great
Lesson on Stress
 
A young lady
confidently walked around the room with a raised glass of
water
 while leading a
seminar and explaining stress management to her audience.  Everyone
knew she was going to ask the ultimate question, 'Half empty or half
full?' 
 
She fooled them
all. "How heavy is this glass of water?" she inquired with a
smile.
 Answers called out
ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.
 
She replied, "The
absolute weight doesn't matter.  It depends on how long I hold
it.
   If I hold it for a
minute, that's not a problem.  If I hold it for an hour, I'll have an
ache in my right arm.
 
If I hold it for a
day, you'll have to call an ambulance.  In each case it's the same
weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it
becomes."
 
She continued, "And
that's the way it is with stress.  If we carry our burdens all the
time, sooner or later, as the burden becomes increasingly heavy, we won't
be able to carry on."
 
"As with the glass
of water, you have to put it down for a while and rest before holding it
again.  When we're refreshed, we can carry on with the burden –
holding stress longer and better each time
practiced.
 
So, as early in the
evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don't carry them through
the evening and into the night.  Pick them up again tomorrow if you
must.
 
1 * Accept the fact
that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the
statue!
 
2 * Always keep
your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat
them.
 
3 * Always read
stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of
it.
 
4 * Drive
carefully… It's not only cars that can be recalled by their
Maker.
 
5 * If you can't be
kind, at least have the decency to be
vague.
 
6 * If you lend
someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth
it.
 
7 * It may be that
your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to
others.
 
8 * Never buy a car
you can't push.
 
9 * Never put both
feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won't have a leg to
stand on.
 
10 * Nobody cares
if you can't dance well.  Just get up and
dance.
 
11 * Since it's the
early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep
late.
 
12 * The second
mouse gets the cheese.
 
13 * When
everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong
lane.
 
14 * Birthdays are
good for you. The more you have, the longer you
live.
 
16 * Some mistakes
are too much fun to make only once.
 
17 * We could learn
a lot from crayons.  Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are
dull.  Some have weird names and all are different colors, but they
all have to live in the same box.
 
18 * A truly happy
person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a
detour.
 
19 * Have an
awesome day and know that someone has thought about you
today.
 
AND MOST
IMPORTANTLY
 
20 *Save the
earth….. It's the only planet with
chocolate!*
 
 
 
Be the kind of
person that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says~~ "Oh
Crap, they're up!"
