PUT THE GLASS DOWN TODAY


Once, a professor began his class by holding up a glass with some water in it. He held it up for all to see and asked the students, 'How much do you think this glass weighs?' '1 pound!' ....'2 pounds!' .....'3 pounds!' ......the students answered.
'I really don't know unless I weigh it,' said the professor, 'but, my question is: What would happen if I held it up like this for a few minutes?' 'Nothing' the students said.
'OK what would happen if I held it up like this for an hour?' the professor asked. 'Your arm would begin to ache' said one of the students.
'You're right, now what would happen if I held it for a day?' 'Your arm could go numb, you might have severe muscle stress & paralysis; have to go to hospital for sure' ventured another student. All the students laughed.
'Very good. But during all this, did the weight of the glass change?' Asked the professor. 'No,' replied the students.' 'Then what caused the arm ache; the muscle stress?
Instead, what should I do?' The students were puzzled. 'Put the glass down' said one of the students. 'Exactly!' said the professor. 'Life's problems are something like this. Hold them for a few minutes in your head; they seem OK. Think of them for a long time; they begin to ache. Hold them even longer; they begin to paralyze you. You will not be able to do anything.'
It is important to think of the challenges in your life, but EVEN MORE IMPORTANT to 'put them down' at the end of every day before you go to sleep. That way, you are not stressed, you wake up every day fresh, strong, can handle any issue, any challenge that comes your way!
Remember friend
- PUT THE GLASS DOWN TODAY!

This is so very true. Sometimes, I allow my arms to go numb and have to remember to put my glass down. Although many times we know the exact moment which should lay the glass down, we don't. I think one reason is we get conditioned to feeling that pain and feel as though we can take it. After awhile we have built up a certain tolerance to it and that creates us to hold on to things longer and longer. After awhile we are so used to it that we almost can't do without the pain..insane huh? I try my best to think, write and inspire. For me, doing that allows me to put my glass down when the weight becomes too much...

I don't think there's any way to deny the logic (not to mention the health benefits) of being able to actually let go of all the worlds problems and relax, even if it's just for a short while. However, and despite my own self recognition of the benefits, I'm almost never capable of letting go until the stressor is gone, and when does that ever happen in todays society?

“Now very much against her will, she thought of the way Jace had looked at her then, the blaze of faith in his eyes, his belief in her. He had always thought she was strong. He had showed it in everything he did, in every look and every touch. Simon had faith in her too, yet when he'd held her, it had been as if she were something fragile, something made of delicate glass. But Jace had held her with all the strength he had, never wondering if she could take it--he'd known she was as strong has he was.”
