Saw this on another forum so decided to pass it on,with life as it is at the moment we can all suffer stress

"How heavy is this glass of water?"
"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; 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.
Whatever burdens you're carrying now, let them down for a moment. Relax, pick them up later after you've rested. Life is short - enjoy it and the now (supposed) stress that you've conquered!

* Accept the fact that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue!

* Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.

* Drive carefully... It's not only cars that can be recalled by their Maker.

* If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague

* If you lend someone £10 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

* Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won't have a leg to stand on.

* Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.

* Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live.

* You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.

* A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

* Have an awesome day and know that someone has thought about you today!

one of the points was "if you lend someone £10 and never see them again, it was worth it" reminds me of my mother,
when I was a child, a neighbour came, in distress, and asked to borrow half a crown, a lot of money then.
My mother obliged, and the money was returned some days later, then the following week the same thing happened. anyway to cut a long story short this went on for months. By now mother was putting the halfcrown away for the neighbour. Then one week the money was not returned, and the neighbour didn't speak to my mother til the day she died.
My mother didn't feel agrieved about it she said that that money belonged to neither after a while but never found out why??
