The True Meaning of  Stress and the Ways to Avoid it
A young lady  confidently walked around the room while leading and explaining  stress management to an audience; with a raised glass of water,  and 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  tomorrow.

Whatever burdens you’re carrying now, let them  down for a moment. Relax, pick them up  later after you’ve rested. Life is short. Enjoy it and the now  ‘supposed’ stress that you’ve conquered!”

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.

15 * You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world  to one person.

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.

20 * It was I, your friend!
