Dear Subscriber,

Many lessons in this yet I don’t know who the author is.  It came to me anonymously.  Enjoy.

A young  lady confidently walked around the room while leading and explaining  stress management to an audience with a raised glass of water. 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.

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.


20 *Save  the earth….. It’s the only planet with chocolate!* I THINK  !!!!
