Stress Management for Women

A young lady  confidently walked around the room while leading and explaining stress  management to an audience with a raised glass of water. Everyone knew she was  going to ask the ultimate question, 'half empty or half full?'... She fooled  them all .... "How heavy is this glass of water?" she inquired with a smile.  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, that's not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I'll have an ache in my right 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." She continued, "and that's the  way it is with stress. If we carry our burdens all 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 - holding stress  longer and better each time practiced. So, as early in the evening as you can,  put all your burdens down. Don't carry them through the evening and into the  night... Pick them up tomorrow.
 
1 * Accept the  fact that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue!
 
2 * Always keep  your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.
 
3 * Always read  stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of  it.

4 * Drive  carefully.. It's not only cars that can be recalled by their Maker.
 
5 * If you can't  be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.
 
6 * If you lend  someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth  it.
 
7 * It may be  that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to  others.
 
8 * Never buy a  car you can't push.
 
9 * Never put  both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won't have a leg to  stand on.
 
10 * Nobody cares  if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.
 
11 * Since it's  the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late.
 
12 * The second  mouse gets the cheese.
 
13 * When  everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.
 
14 * Birthdays  are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live.
 
16 * Some  mistakes are too much fun to make only once.
 
17 * We could  learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull.  Some have weird names and all are different colors, but they all have to live in  the same box.
 
18 * A truly  happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.
 
19 * Have an  awesome day and know that someone has thought about you  today.
 
AND MOST  IMPORTANTLY
 
20 *Save the  earth..... It's the only planet with chocolate!*
 
Today someone asked me if I liked you. I laughed,  and I said, "Ha! That's funny!! I absolutely LOVE that woman!! She's funny,  caring, crazy as heck, sweet, beautiful, she's reading this email right now  & I love her!!" Send this to ten ladies you love!! & I better be  one!!!!
 
Be  the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil  says~~ "Oh Crap, She's up!"
