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?” The answer 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, its 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 stress and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them for 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.” Always remember to put the glass down.
“Travel, go as many places as you can. You can always make money, you can’t always make memories.”
I agree with the picture. Nothing compares with the memories that we can make together with our family & friends. It is something that we can always look back and reminisce.
We all know that “Time is limited” and we need to make the most of it while we can. While we have the means and energy to enjoy these travels.
Nowadays, the word “travel” means expense.
Well, when you look at it, it is really expense but for me it is an expense worth spending. It will help build a lasting memory and money cannot buy the memories that can be created in any of these travels made with family. Wouldn’t it be nice to look at a picture 5 years from now where you have traveled with you friends and family and in this day the age of instagram you’d probably hash tagged it like this #iloveyoumom #foreverlove #happiness #memories.
Let’s do what we can while we are still young!
Enjoy creating memories! 🙂
