It’s not the weight, it’s how long you hold it

I heard this on the radio this morning:

A teacher stands in front of his class one morning and asks his class, “How much does this glass of water weigh?”

The class looks around at each other and gives varying responses to which the teacher nods and responds, “All possible answers, but what would happen if I held this glass for 1 minute? It doesn’t weigh much right? What if I held it for an hour? I’d get very tired…now what if I held it for a whole day? I’d probably need to go to the hospital later on. The glass weighs the same regardless of how long I hold it, it’s the length of time I hold onto it that makes it more difficult for me to bear. In life, stress is not about┬áthe amount you’re under, it’s about how long you hold onto it. You need to take a break; set it down from time to time.”

I felt amazed reading this, I hope it helps you too!

The pictures below spoke volumes to me today, I wanted to share this and many more thought provoking messages as we close out the old year and welcome the New Year.

 

Gratitude

I went looking and found this video on Gratitude, I teared up at the end. It was very moving for me and I hope it’ll move you too:
