I know - You immediately ask yourself - "is the glass half full or half empty" .
Instead I would like you to think about how heavy the glass of water is ?
You can guess the weight and you may guess correctly !
But the correct weight really 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 maybe paralyzed. The thing is - the weight of the glass doesn't change!
But the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.
The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water.
Think about them for a period of time 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 numb or paralyzed –
incapable of doing anything !
Remember to put the glass down !
