How Much Do Feelings Weigh? 
 
A noted speaker 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."
Remember to put the glass down. Thanksgiving is a time of both letting go and picking up. Each year we have the opportunity to let go of a misunderstanding, misconception or mistake. We also can pick up more understanding, develop more clarity and experience more gratefulness. The longer we focus on what is truly important the more we feel relief, gratefulness and joy today.
Happy Thanksgiving!
