Half Empty Cup of Water Could Harm You

What are you carrying around that you wish you weren’t.  Is it past wounds, negative emotions, a few extra pounds, current stressful situations?  Next to my aversion for wasting time on television (which I haven’t had cable for 22 years) I dislike social media sites like facebook as being able to suck us in and steal time that could be better spent. That being said, I click on the facebook button once or twice a week and try to spend no more than 1o minutes there. I know I’m pretty disciplined.
This post from a dear friend of mine, really made an impact on me and I thought you might all benefit from this thought provoking post as well:
True wisdom.
A Psychologist walked around a room while teaching Stress Management to an audience.As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “Half empty or Half full” question.Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired:”How heavy is this glass of water?”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, it’s not a problem.

If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm.

If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed.

In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change,

But …The longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.

She continued, “The Stresses and Worries in Life , are like that Glass of Water…

Think about them for a while and nothing happens.

Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt.

And ……….If you think about them all day long,

you will feel paralyzed –incapable of doing anything….!!!”

Remember to put the Glass Down!
