A  woman's spin on stress  
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!
 AND MOST  IMPORTANTLY Today someone asked me if I liked you. I  laughed, and I said, "Ha! That's funny! I absolutely L O V E that  woman!!  She's funny, caring,  crazy as heck, sweet, beautiful, she's reading this email right now  & I love her!!"
Send  this to ten ladies you love… the more the better!!
Be the  kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil  says~~  "Oh Crap, She's  up!"
