If you don't build your dreams, someone will hire you to build theirs.

"How Heavy Is This Glass of Water? A Short Story About Stress and Compartmentalizing"
A psychologist walks into a room of students and asks how heavy her glass of water is? The answer might surprise you...

The Story:
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.”

I found this online a while ago and wrote it down for myself, but I don't remember if I had posted it previously in the JDZ Inspiration section, so I've posted it here just in case. :hope: :hope: The short story helps someone who might need to read it during difficult times of life.
