If Life Gets Heavy ~ Just keep it light~

If life gets heavy just keep it light. Be easy with it all...Bring some humor and silliness into each and every day!

 

“You will find that it is necessary to let things go; simply for the reason that they are heavy. So let them go, let go of them. I tie no weights to my ankles.” ~ C. JoyBell C.

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.”

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!

This share came to me- from a Face book called 'The Idealist'...And I thought it was worth sharing.

So, if life gets heavy, just keep it light....You can put the glass down, but then, you can always just drink the water, right? Hehe~

Remember... Humor and silliness can always bring a little lightness to any "day"...So be easy with it all, "ok?"~~ :-) ~~♥ From my ♥ to your ♥ *☮ • Love & Lightི♥ྀ Laughter & warm hugsღ ~Tina Rizzitello.´~ ♥ (*◡*) ♥
