Rick HuntressSome days we can do nothing more than laugh. Today is one of those days for me. Maybe you need a laugh as well?

 

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. That is 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.

15 * A truly happy  person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

16 * Have an awesome  day and know that someone has thought about you today.

AND MOST  IMPORTANTLY

17 *Save the earth….. It’s the only planet with chocolate!  🙂
