Found this great post over at Divita Speaks (say...that's a familiar name, gosh...it's MY name; ok, this is my daughter's blog) and had to share. Benecia, one of the blog's writers, shared some inspiring content I hadn't seen before, and that seems especially relevant right now. I'm busy making lemonade out of lemons. MMMmmm...good! Lots of Equal.
Anyway, here's the question: How Much Does a Glass of Water (full of lemonade) Weigh? By Benecia Beyer
"This wonderful post was borrowed from a Blog - Spiritual Struggle (which no longer exists) - but I thought it was so enlightening I wanted to share with you.
A lecturer, when explaining stress management to an audience, raised a glass of water and asked, "How heavy is this glass of water?" Answers called out ranged from 3 ounces to 6 ounces. The lecturer replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter. It depends on how long you 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 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."
He continued, "And that's the way it is with stress management. If we carry our burdens all of 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."
