Relax lang ....

A lecturer, when explaining stress management to an audience, raised a glass of water and asked, "How heavy is this glass of water?"

Answers called out ranged from 20g to 500g.

The lecturer replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter. It depends on how long you try to 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."

He continued, "And that's the way it is with stress management. 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 withthe burden."

"So, before you return home tonight, put the burden of work down. Don'tcarry it home. You can pick it up tomorrow.Whatever burdens you're carrying now, let them down for a moment if youcan."

So, my friend, why not take a while to just simplyRELAX. Put down anything that may be a burden to you right now. Don't pick it up againuntil after you've rested a while.

Life is short. Enjoy it! Here are some great waysof dealing with the burdens of life:

Accept that some days you're the pigeon, and somedays you're the statue.

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

* Always read stuff that will make you look good ifyou die in the middle of it.

* Drive carefully. It's not only cars that can berecalled by their maker.

* If you can't be kind, at least have the decencyto be vague.

* If you lend someone $20 and never see that personagain, it was probably worth it . I like this one..abuloy mo na sa mga balasubas!!!

* It may be that your sole purpose in life issimply to serve as a warning to others.

* Never buy a car you can't push.

* 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.

* Since it's the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late. The second mouse gets the cheese.

* When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.

* 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.

* Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.

* 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.

*A truly happy person is one who can enjoy thescenery on a detour.
Have an awesome day and know that someone has thought about you today......I did.
