Hello everyone thanks so much for stopping by today and a warm welcome to you all. I just want to share a story to us; maybe we might pick one or two lessons from it.

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 0z.


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 pains and if not careful it might even lead to a paralyzed arm.
In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heaver 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”

It’s important to remember to let go of your stresses. As early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don’t carry them through the evening and into the night. Remember to put the glass down.

Thanks so much for reading this post I really appreciate your efforts and time spent on the post. And a very big thank you to everyone who has been supportive and encouraging I am grateful.
Until I come your way again tomorrow stay safe, stay hygienic, stay motivated and remain blessed.
